In the movie Star Wars: episode I Anakin Skywalker is a child and also Padmé is a young lady. Their relationship is that of a child and also a lady.

You are watching: Age difference of anakin and padme

But in Episode II Anakin has aged right into a young guy even though Padmé show up to be practically the same age and they are having actually a lover"s relationship.

What is the reasonable behind this? Doesn"t Padmé age? Is there any in-universe explanation?


*

In "The Phantom Menace" (set in 32 BBY) Anakin is aged 9 and also Padmé is 14. He transforms ten during the film.

By the moment of your (sexual) relationship in strike of the Clones, (set ten years later, set in 22 BBY) he was 19 and also she was 24.

The name resonated in young Anakin’s heart and also soul. He hadn’t viewed her in a decade, not due to the fact that he, along with Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon, had actually helped her in her struggle against the trade Federation top top Naboo. He had actually only been ten years old at the time, but from the moment he had first laid eye on Padmé, young Anakin had known the she to be the woman he would marry.

Never mind that Padmé was several years older than he was. Never ever mind that he was just a boy as soon as he had known her, once she had known him. Never mind that Jedi to be not allowed to marry. - assault of the Clones: main Novelisation

As to why she doesn"t show up to age (much), i think we can put that under to an excellent moisturisation regime.

Padmé ages from 14 years old in Phantom Menace come 24 year old in attack of the Clones.

Assuming the people of Naboo monitor the same growth as earth humans, the females commonly reach adult height between ages 14-16, according to the CDC: http://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/data/set1clinical/cj41c022.pdf

From this, we have the right to assume not much physical transforms happened in Padmé"s body during these 10 years.

Also that is widely known that Naboo"s imperial makeup artists are really good. All of the handmaidens space trained in assembly techniques.

So, for a young queen, the makeup could be make to make her look much more mature.

And agreeing through Richard, since it is a world with substantial water features, the moisturization.

Actually Anakin was 9 yet turned 10 through the end of the film The Phantom Menace and also Padme was 14. Therefore if Attack the the Clones is 10 years later on that would placed Anakin at twenty years old and also his birthday would"ve had to be days prior to they were assigned to protect Padme indigenous the assassination attempts. So because of this she is 24 or 25 in Attack that the Clones in ~ the time and Revenge of the Sith is 3 year later, putting Anakin at 23 years and also Padme in ~ 27 or 28.

Padme to be queen in ~ a an extremely young period the make up made she look mature and also older. In The Phantom Menace she to be 14 and Anakin to be 9. In strike of the Clones he is 19 and also she is 24. In the last two episodes they don"t look like they space years apart. Natalie to be 16 and Jake was 8.
