It's on June 4, 2024, in just a few days, that the first episode of Star Wars will be released: The Acolyte, the new Disney+ series. And as surprising as it may seem, this would help explain a decision taken by the character ofQui-Gon Jinn25 years ago, in strong>The Phantom Menace.

The new series taking place in the universe of < em>Star Wars,The Acolyte will debut next week on Disney+. Expected at the turning point, it will allow us to delve into the era of the Haute Republic for the first time at a glance. the screen. Synopses, posters, trailers… We already have; been able to get many glimpses of what awaits us ahead. from June 4.But a short shot from the latest trailer particularly caught our attention. We see Jedi Master Sol (Lee Jung-jae) giving a lightsaber to his young padawan, Mae Aniseya (Amandla Stenberg ).

At the moment when takes place the series, Mae seems to have more or less tilted towards the side of the darkness of the Force. But the scene mentioned, which should therefore act as a flashback, seems to be the moment where she officially became a padawan, and got her very first lightsaber. Now, she doesn't seem that young, and is probably in her early teens. So, how can we explain that in The Phantom Menace , released in 1999, the Jedi Council refused to accept it. that Qui-Gon Jinn took Anakin Skywalker under his wing on the pretext that he was too old to survive. ?

qui-gon jinn’s fateful decision in the phantom menace

In Episode I from Star WarsThe Phantom Menace, we discover a very young Anakin Skywalker on the planet Tatooine. Qui-Gon Jinn, whose apprentice was then Obi-Wan Kenobi, decides to take him under his wing and wishes to make him a Jedi. He considers that this is the Chosen One capable of bringing balance back to the Force. Respect and judged very wise, it is up to you to the general surprise of the Jedi Council that he disobeys and decides to train him despite the threat. the refusal of his peers.The Council's main argument is Anakin's age, judged to be too “old”: padawans are supposed to be trained from their youngest age.

Yet, in the trailer forThe Acolyte , Mae appears to be at least as old – if not older – than Anakin when she is made a padawan. This would imply that the rules have changed. between the High Republic era and the Republican era within the Jedi Council, a few centuries later. Perhaps such a change occurred because the Jedi realized that young children were more docile. Maybe even padawans like Mae were more likely to be angry. disobey and switch to the right side obscure. Obviously, this is all speculation.

If this rule change were true, it is unknown when it might have occurred. But we can easily think that Qui-Gon Jinn has difficulty in controlling himself. accept the new method of “recruiting” Jedi.Perhaps he himself became a padawan at home. a late age. Besides, we are made to understand; several times, both in The Phantom Menace and in the novels and comics, that the Jedi Master interpreted as &àgrave; The screen play by Liam Neeson is often at odds with the way the Jedi Council operates.We therefore hope that his story, and that of the padawans, is explored in depth in the new seriesThe Acolyte, based on to appear on June 4!
