However, things became far more complicated when prequel Revenge of the Sith hit cinemas in 2005. In the sixth instalment of the franchise, Anakin is fully aware that his lover Padmé is expecting. His initial excitement soon turns to fear, however, when he begins to constantly envisage Padmé losing her life while giving birth.

Anakin’s transformation into supervillain begins when he’s taken under the wing of Palpatine. The Supreme Chancellor informs the Jedi Knight that he knows how to overcome death. And after confessing that he’s in fact a Sith Lord, Palpatine then tells Anakin that he has the power to keep Padmé alive.
