Comic Book.com spoke to Dave Filoni at SWCE and the subject of midichlorians came up (which CB.com refers to as a “dirty word” among Star Wars fans…eyeroll):
For a long time I’ve used someone like Bruce Lee as an example. He has, if you like, a lot of talent for martial arts – or a very high midi-chlorian count. If I train in martial arts, can I learn martial arts? Yes, I can improve my midi-chlorian count in that discipline. Will I be as good as Bruce Lee? No, that’s not my talent. We were always able to find real-world equivalencies to Star Wars to make comparisons that make it feel like it’s a real thing.
Whatever Filoni learned on that issue came from Lucas himself. Thank goodness this guy is still on board. Read the rest here.
