Pablo Hidalgo confirms Anakin remains canonically the Chosen One

A new Mark Hamill interview from Entertainment Weekly led some to believe that the Prophecy of the Chosen One would be reinterpreted in The Last Jedi:

“[Luke] made a huge mistake in thinking that his nephew was the chosen one, so he invested everything he had in Kylo, much like Obi-Wan did with my character,” Hamill says. “And he is betrayed, with tragic consequences. Luke feels responsible for that. That’s the primary obstacle he has to rejoining the world and his place in the Jedi hierarchy, you know? It’s that guilt, that feeling that it’s his fault, that he didn’t detect the darkness in him until it was too late.”

But Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo says that Hamill wasn’t refering to the Prophecy. Anakin remains canonically the Chosen One.

The Vamps’ James McVey thinks Jar Jar Binks is ‘an interesting character’

jamesmcvey

From StarWars.com:

“They’ve toured with the likes of Selena Gomez, Little Mix, and Taylor Swift, but now British boy band the Vamps are about to head on a world tour of their own to support the release of new album, Night & Day. StarWars.com caught up with guitarist James McVey to talk about his love of the saga, meeting Carrie Fisher (as well as Gary!), and getting emotional over Rogue One. […]

StarWars.com: You’ve been put forward to me as the biggest fan in the band — either that or you just got the short straw?

James McVey: No, it’s true! My dad watched the originals in the ’70s, so when I was growing up I watched video tapes of IV, V, and VI. I’ve grown up with it.

StarWars.com: So you must have been pretty young when The Phantom Menace came out?

James McVey: Yeah, I must have been six or seven. I do remember it coming out, but I did the originals first and I think that was the best way to get me into it.

StarWars.com: OK, I’m going to bring up a certain Sir Jar Jar of Binks here. You’re very much a fan aren’t you?

James McVey: Yeah…I just like depth to stories and I find him an interesting character. The whole Gungan city underwater is also really interesting and if it wasn’t for Jar Jar then they never would have gone down there. I think he’s a good link to another part of Star Wars that fans can get involved in.”
