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

You are watching: How old is padme and anakin

But in Episode II Anakin has actually aged into a young guy also though Padmé show up to be virtually the very same age and also they are having 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 age 9 and Padmé is 14. He transforms ten during the film.

By the time of their (sexual) relationship in assault of the Clones, (set ten year later, collection in 22 BBY) he was 19 and she to be 24.

The surname resonated in young Anakin’s heart and soul. That hadn’t viewed her in a decade, not since he, together with Obi-Wan and also Qui-Gon, had helped she in her struggle against the profession Federation on Naboo. He had only to be ten year old at that time, yet from the minute he had an initial laid eye on Padmé, young Anakin had known that she was the woman he would certainly marry.

Never mind the Padmé was several years older than he was. Never ever mind the he was simply a boy when he had known her, once she had actually known him. Never ever mind the Jedi were not enabled to marry. - attack of the Clones: main Novelisation

As come why she doesn"t show up to age (much), ns think we deserve to put that down to fantastic moisturisation regime.

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

Assuming the humans of Naboo follow the same expansion as planet humans, the females generally reach adult height between ages 14-16, according to the CDC:

From this, we can assume not much physical alters happened in Padmé"s body during these 10 years.

Also it is widely recognized that Naboo"s royal makeup artist are very good. Every one of the handmaidens space trained in assembly techniques.

So, because that a young queen, the makeup could be made to do her look an ext mature.

And agreeing v Richard, due to the fact that it is a world with comprehensive water features, the moisturization.

Actually Anakin to be 9 yet turned 10 by the end of the film The Phantom Menace and Padme to be 14. For this reason if Attack the the Clones is 10 years later that would placed Anakin at two decades old and his birthday would"ve had actually to it is in days before they to be assigned to safeguard Padme from the assassination attempts. So therefore she is 24 or 25 in Attack that the Clones at the time and Revenge the the Sith is 3 years later, placing Anakin at 23 years and also Padme in ~ 27 or 28.
