Who would have this popping expectation that a 9-year-old Anakin, more or less 10 years ago has come to this age somewhat unexpected, less-known, yet of interesting outlook in his film career in Hollywood in the near future, this time away from the Klieg lights?
Jake Lloyd played the role of Anakin Skywalker in the prequel of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, the 1999 American epic space opera film written and directed by George Lucas.
Anakin is a slave child from the far, far away desert planet called Tatooine. A young boy who has created his own protocol droid, C-3PO. He was sensed by a Jedi, Qui-Gon, who believed that this child, Anakin, has a strong presence of the Force suspected to be the “Chosen One” of the Jedi prophecy.
But who could still remember Anakin in his extraordinary role-portrayal? Of course, all of us who loved The Phantom Menace and all the sequels of the Star Wars.
Anakin, as I fondly called Jake Lloyd was born in Fort Collins, Colorado to Bill Lloyd and Lisa Riley. He was best known for his performances in the films Jingle All the Way and Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. He attended Columbia College Chicago as a film and video major. (Source: wikipedia)
Now, Anakin is reportedly to make a return to Hollywood yet behind the Klieg lights. This would be a fantastic reunification of Anakin’s fans all over the galaxy!
This February, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 3D will be making its sure-hit in theaters!
