Got two to add:

Mace Windu
TPM: 40
AOTC: 50
ROTS: 53
ANH, ESB, ROTJ: Deceased

And this is just a guess since we don't know his real age, but....

Palpatine
TPM: 55
AOTC: 65
ROTS: 68
ANH: 87
ESB: 90
ROTJ: 91

I wonder if Palpatine was far older and somehow using the Force to make himself appear younger. Palpatine might be even as old as 200 or something.

"The Dark Side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural."

When he struck Luke with Dark Side lightning in ROTJ, Luke did not become all old and decrepid. He got in nearly as close as he was to his own reflected powers that Mace redirected back at him with Mace's lightsaber.

Perhaps Palpatine used that as an excuse to reveal himself to Anakin and gain his sympathy? Perhaps Palpatine also couldn't maintain his control over his disguise while under such duress?

Maybe an EU novel will shed light on this. James Luceno is busy at work on The Tragedy of Darth Plagueis.

Qui-Gon's missing. I believe he was around 55-60 in TPM. I know that sounds positively ancient, but it's from the novelization.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

TPM 24
AOTC 34
ROTS 37
ANH 56
ESB deceased
ROTJ one with the Force



In 'one with the Force years,' Obi was 13 1/2 in ESB and 142 in ROTJ (it's a little like Dog-years math)....

I thought Obi-Wan was 25 in TPM. I also remember hearing that Anakin turns 10 near the end of TPM, is 20 in AOTC, and so on.

I thought Obi was 22 in TPM

I think you're right about Anakin, but either way it's creepy he's hitting on the 14 year old...(or vice versa)...

And I've always assumed that the 900-year-old Yoda and 200-year-old Chewie were just estimates, and not actual ages.

When I was 9, I had crushes on nearly 30 year old teachers of mine. A 14 year old girl is not really a stretch. Meanwhile, 14 year old Padme was NOT hitting on him!

When she's 24 and he's 19, that's understandable.

But you didn't grow up to marry your 30 year old teacher only to kill her and become a Sith Lord....

But in defense, I guess it would be hot if your babysitter turned around to have a crush on you when you grew up...

Oh, I had a serious crush on my babysitter! She's not related, but like a big sister to me now - and she's still very pretty even though she's now married and a mom of two daughters.

I love how your reply fits your Dwight avatar.....really funny...lol

By the way, can't knock Anakin for having a crush on the teenage Queen (that's not creepy), I thought it was more creepy for her to be crushing on him....especially after he grew up into a bratty Jedi-wanna-be-knight....
