Oh the Star Wars Prequels. The most hated yet loved yet hated prequel trilogy in all of movie history. A failed attempt by George Lucas to capture lightning in a bottle a second time. But what if we are looking at these films all wrong. In the films we are lead to believe that Padme and Anikin are the central love story. Makes sense in Episode 3 maybe even 2 but certainly not in Episode 1 when Padme is a late teen and Anikin is a child….gross. However this theory that has been making its rounds on Reddit claims that Padme was secretly in love with Obi-Wan and that maybe Luke is actually the secret love child of Padme and Obi-Wan not Anikin. When watching the prequels through this lens it actually works A LOT better.
