Why Was Anakin Skywalker Allowed to Wear Black Robes?? Star Wars Explained

  • Added:  9 days ago
  • With all the Jedi Masters obeying a certain standard of lighter coloured robes and tan tunics, why did they let Anakin Skywalker who wasn't a master...stray from what the Masters did? The Visualization book helps us understand...

    Hope you enjoy :)

      no...wait. my robe would be fire red to reflect that i burned all of my Star Wars comic books, novels, DVDs, and collectibles after the fucking Phantom Menace

      i would think that my midichlorian count would decide a midichlorian shade of Chartreuse. Or maybe a robe like the color of the Sands of Naboo haha

      I wouldn't even wear robes, if that's an option. I'd wear a hooded black combat suit with a kama (the skirt thing some clones wore with their armor) for added protection and to honor Mandelorian traditions. I'd rather be practical as I'd most likely be a Jedi Sentinel.

    Obi Wan: "Anakin your color scheme is drawing concern from the council. It's kind of Sith-esque."

    Anakin: "Taste the e d g e, master."

    Obi Wan: "What?"

    Anakin: "Your ugly SAND colored robes aren't controversial enough to feed my angst."

    Not to debunk this whole video, but the costume designer of Ep. III has said that Anakin's robes were not black, but a deep brown. Those promo photos appear to be black, but in the film, everything is a dark brown. Particularly the tabbards, robe and glove. Those are a rich brown, appearing black in some light.

    KANE AND ABLE 3 days ago

    anakin was the force showing the flaws in the jedi and sith order. The jedi may seem happy and good but there to traditional which makes them weak. The sith are to evil and treacherous that end up killing there own. In the last jedi we will see the balance that the force was trying to show all along. The only person ever to profect this none other than the legendary mace windu who some say at his time was the strongest jedi of all.

    I'm usually a supporter of the dark side, but I've always considered Anakin's robes ugly. Especially in AOTC.

    Wait... So we have to ignore that other Jedi also have dark robes?

    That's retarded.

    That's like saying we having to ignore all the other planets so your theory about earth being the only planet holds out.

  • Robert Pyne

    it's because all the other robes were sand coloured

    I figured it's cause traditional robes are the same color as literally ALL of Tattooine.

  • Antonio Burnett

    In what era did the Jedi become pacifists? I know in the old republic they were warriors to protect the peace but in the movies just enforcers. It's as though they went from being police officers to mall cops.

    0:43 That's Shak Ti (however you spell it), not Asoka (Also not sure if that's how you spell it).
    If i remember correctly, Asoka always wore shades of brown.

  • fadingjedi

    This is where I wish the corellian Jedi would become cannon again. They had slightly different traditions. They tended wear different colors in their robes and answer directly to the council. I liked the idea from the books that there elements of of the Jedi that went own way but we're still Jedi.

    would you do a video why darth vader wears a chain in his neck

  • shihoblade
    shihoblade 4 days ago

    So in short anakin can wear what he wants and he chose darker clothes which highlighted his differences from the other Jedi and his underlying dark nature.

    So the obvious answer and no new information.

    Honoured traditions but not uniforms. Jedi are free to dress as they choose? So a Jedi could wear jeans and a v-neck and it would be acceptable?

    My thought was that since he had to wear light slave clothing as a child his darker Jedi robes were just a way of escaping from his past.

  • blaze556922
    blaze556922 4 days ago

    So much of a choice that they abduct you from your real family and force their dogma upon you. The Jedi are not the noble people they pretend to be. If so, they would be freeing slaves everywhere they went and wouldn't separate children from their parents.

    I never liked that he wore black. Everyone knew where he was going go, no need for transparent foreshadowing. Luke's black made sense since he was being wooed by the Sith and at risk of falling to the Dark Side.

    your theory doesn't make any sense if you look in the cartoon Clone Wars series you see a lot of Jedi with multiple color robes if you look in the first movie The Phantom Menace you'll see that little short guy with a scar on his left eye wearing all black robes. also if you look in the original Star Wars you'll see Luke Skywalker dressed in all black just because you are wearing their traditional Jedi robes or black robes does not mean you are turning to the dark side are you fucking moron or something this video makes no sense whatsoever. I would like to clarify in the original Star Wars books not these new ones the old ones with corn horn Kip during Ben Skywalker jaina and Anakin jacen solo those books they all wore different color robes Cochran didn't wear any rob you didn't like them Corran horn War all green robes Ben Skywalker Luke Skywalker wore the traditional Jedi also wore black Jedi robes did they turn to The Darkside no so again your theory in this video is bullshit!

    I really wanna see him dress in his Jedi robes for jumper 2. Oh! And I wanna see Ahsoka make an appearance, too! And bring the clones! They can fight the Paladins. Oh wait, that would mean they would fight Master Windu... I wonder how that would work out... I know! *(STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS SPOILER ALERT)* Since Anakin fell to the dark side and Ahsoka defected from the Jedi order, the clones can work for the Paladins with Master Windu! After all, I'm sure there's beef between Anakin and Master Windu considering Anakin chopped Windu's hand off and sent him flying down into oblivion! Yeah... It all works out.......

  • Putin on the pooper

    Episode 3 Anakin is still the most likable character for me. I felt real sadness watching him turn to the dark side and to this day I haven’t “bonded” with a character like I did with anakins character in revenge.
