The topic of who Anakin’s father has been a subject of discussion for some time. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace touched on this by explaining that there was no father. His mother Shmi told Qui-Gon this by simply explaining that she carried him, gave birth, and raised him. She can’t explain how it happened but there was definitely no father.

This then led Qui-Gon to believe that Anakin was born from the force itself and that Anakin was a creation of Midi-chlorians, which is why he had such a high concentration.

A lot of fans have always theorized that Palpatine was the father of Anakin, ever since Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. When Palpatine tells Anakin about Darth Plagueis the Wise, this was the point where fans began to believe that Palpatine may be Anakin’s father. By admitting he learned the secrets to create life with the force before killing his master and therefore would be the only one to create Anakin from Midi-chlorians.

And hey, it looks like they were right,
