New Star Wars Book Confirms Anakin Ignored Qui-Gon's Force Ghost During One Crucial Moment

The story answers a burning question from the prequel trilogy and helps to define Anakin Sky walker's fall to the Dark Side.


There are few movies that have caused as many heated discussions over the years as Star Wars movies have. With the way certain scenes were filmed, arguments have happened about just what happened during those scenes. And for the most part, many of those "did he or didn't he?" moments remain unanswered.

But now, a new Star Wars novel coming out next year will answer one of those questions. The story will shed light on one of the burning questions regarding a specific scene in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, and, in doing so, provides confirmation about exactly when Anakin Skywalker's fall to the Dark Side of the Force began. It is fitting that this story is being told now considering Hayden Christiensen's imminent return as Anakin Skywalker in the upcoming Ahsoka series as well as his appearances as Darth Vader in the forthcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

The specific scene referred to in the novel occurs after Anakin Skywalker has a dream regarding his mother back on Tatooine where he dreams of her in pain. He travels to Tatooine to seek his mother out and learns that the slaver Watto had sold her to a moisture farmer, Cliegg Lars. When he travels to the Lars ranch, he learns that she had been taken by Tusken Raiders during one of their recent attacks.
