3. The prediction may have been misread
Star Wars fans are undoubtedly aware of the prescience of the Chosen One, which says “The Jedi will come/To destroy the Sith/And bring balance to the Force.”
This conveniently summarizes Episodes I-VI. The ascent, fall and redemption of Anakin Skywalker along with his son, his daughter and every one of the events that unfolded all through the initial six movies actually brings balance to the Force. However, not for long. That is to say, if there was a continuous balance, there wouldn’t be a story to tell in Episode VII and after that. The prediction ran its course. It lived up to it. Nevertheless, was it was misread by the Jedi?
4. There is another prediction
There’s another prediction in Star Wars canon that hasn’t been investigated yet. It appears to be likely that Episode VII started the introduction, I’m certain it will be the focal point of Episodes VIII and IX. It implies how the third trilogy will end. This prediction says,
“First comes the day
Then comes the night.
After the darkness
Shines through the light.
The difference, they say,
Is only made right
By the resolving of the gray
Through refined Jedi sight.”
This prediction originated from the Whills, and gives the most unmistakable nod to the occasions to come in the Star Wars adventure. The Whills run deep down in Star Wars legend; all the way back to the first script. Lucas clarified;
Originally, I was trying to have the story be told by somebody else; there was somebody watching this whole story and recording it, somebody probably wiser than the mortal players in the actual events. I eventually dropped this idea, and the concept behind the Whills turned into the Force. But the Whills became part of this massive amount of notes, quotes, background information that I used for the scripts; the stories were actually taken from the ‘Journal of the Whills.'”
Disney is obviously embedding that prediction into the coming stories.
