George Lucas explained Ahsoka’s biggest twist decades ago

Her lack of Force skills didn’t stop Sabine Wren from becoming a Jedi, even though she focused more on lightsaber skills than The Force. This enraged and confused fans who believed that only people with high Force potential could even access this mystical energy field, let alone be trained as Jedi. If anything, this seemed to contradict what we learned about the Jedi screening and training process we’d seen in the prequels.

However, based on this old interview with George Lucas, it seems like fans will have to unlearn what they’ve learned. At the time, he claimed that it wasn’t just the Jedi who could use The Force, but that, as with yoga and karate, “if you want to take the time to do it, you can do it.” This ended up being something of a self-fulfilling prophecy in his galaxy far, far away, because for the most part, β€œIt’s just the Jedi taking the time to do it.”
