He was part of an illegal protest group that staged various forms of silent protest against the Empire. In this case, of the extermination of the Jedi, wearing the robes to express solidarity

The real question is why do prequel jedi all dress like they're from tatooine.

>>64517295
That's what I'm saying. Why does a random moisture farmer from Tattooine have jedi clothes?
Why does Luke have jedi clothes? The only thing Luke was missing was a big cloak.
Why?

Because all of the OT Jedi, including Anakin, wore those robes

why is anakin's force ghost wearing tattooine moisture farmer clothes? just accept that in the star wars universe jedi and tattooine moisture farmers both wear similar clothing and go back to reddit
>>
>>64517700
Well, it's actually more like asking why anyone would wear Nazi uniforms in today's day and age? The empire hunted down jedi. So why would random Owen, a guy who wants Luke to stay out of the war, who derided his brother for joining, dress in the full Jedi regalia and potentially oust himself as a supporter of a cause he doesn't believe in, that could get him killed? Why would he do that?
>>
>>64517331
Did the Jedi have a specific uniform?

I always figured they just typically wore very plain clothing because they were boring nature loving hippies.
>>
>>64516886
But that's an overcoat, not a robe with a hood
Also Jedi never wore dark blue pants

This is the correct answer
Jesus christ the autism on this board is unbelievable. The prequels had many problems but the robes are close to the dumbest fucking things you could decide to bitch about
>>
>>64518151
Yes they do. If you watch the prequels, the Jedi are revealed to wear the same robes Obi Wan wears.
Now, obviously this is just a massive oversight on Lucas's part. But to anyone born in this generation who would potentially see these movies in order, I could understand these questions being asked.

The prequels don't shy away from the fact that the farmers on Tatooine wear clothing similar to the Jedi.

But notice that the farmers' clothing is of an obviously inferior quality, so much so that the comparative coarseness of the fabric is immediately visible at a glance.

The robe is a good example of their hypocrisy, too: fake asceticism. They have few and meager possessions, but they live in a huge palace just down the road from the Senate building and hobnob with elites. They are peacekeepers who get sent on shakedown missions and lead armies. They are mystics who explain their religion in terms of its biological evidence. The robes are the visual indication of their unjustified belief that they are detached from the world.

What the fuck? A little dark, isn't it?
It seems that Star Wars didn't necessarily start as a movie made FOR children. It seems that it was marketed toward children after it was realized that the movies could be used to sell toys and generate more money.
This movie seems like one that is possibly appropriate for children rather than meant for children. It also seems more mature and less ADHD somehow.
>>
>>64518912
Considering Fox gave away the toy rights to Lucas instead of some one time fee I guess no one but Lucas saw the potential at least. Considering the company Lucas kept I hardly think he thought of it as a kids movie (although coppola thought they story was bullshit)
>>
>>64518912

It was always a children's movie. Lucas wanted to make for kids what he had enjoyed from the Flash Gordan serials of the 1950s.

It's a tunic, it's not a Jedi uniform, it's just the normal clothes, basically t-shirt + jeans of their world

Star Wars = space fantasy so they wear historical clothes like tunics

I think they were originally going to make the jedi wear a black uniform like Luke, but then they fucked it up in the prequels and had them wear the ordinary tunics

Maybe Anakin was wearing tatooine robe because, you know, he was from tatooine.

Should've been what real Jedi wear. Really makes him stand out as something totally different to the ragtag rebels he fought with.

Despite what Lucas says, he was just making shit up, Obi Wan was never wearing "Jedi Robes" he was just wearing desert clothing like everyone else on Tatooine.

No, that was Owen's father.

Didn't stick because Lucas would later decide to go "50's western" and have only the bad guys dressed in black

I have a smart phone and a tablet. But I am not watching a movie on a screen smaller than 19 inches. Ergo, I will not watch a movie on a tablet, laptop, or phone. I have a desktop or a TV for watching movies.

It's not specific to Tatooine, it's just common galactic peasant/frontier clothing. We never got to see any other frontier planets' normal human fashion. Ignore the prequels.

>robes are the jedi uniforms
>anyone that wears robes must be a jedi
>even though robes are an extremely broad category of clothing

Idiot
>>
>>64523199
That's not really the argument.
The robes are incredibly similar to the Jedi robes.
Obviously, Lucas dressed Obi Wan in robes because everyone on Tatooine wore robes.
Then, he decided to have all Jedi wear the same robes Obi Wan did in the prequels. This is why the robes are so similar.
Why is this a problem? Because without knowing that, it DOES look like the moisture farmers dress like Jedi.
>>
>>64516886

Everyone on Tatoine dressed like that. It became a Jedi thing because Lucas can't find his ass with two hands when it comes to storytelling.
>>
>>64517803

That sequence was actually filmed in the west/southwest of Ireland. I was impressed with the landscapes in the coda, so I made a point of getting that figured out shortly after my screening (other more engaged anons were ahead of me and knew right away). However, it is true that parts (units maybe) were filmed in both Iceland and Ireland, so I made sure to get that clarified where the final sequence is concerned.

I assume that the Iceland scenes were the super-duper death-planet scenes, but as they didn't impress me, I didn't bother to see about those.

Finally, to answer your and the OP... is there some galactic law against wearing robes or impersonating Jedi?

You would need a light saber to impersonate a Jedi. Actually in Episode I Anakin doesn't assume Qui-Gon is a Jedi until he sees his light saber if I remember correctly.
>>
>>64523810
It's not like he sees him do anything jedi worthy before

Do you think if Qui Gon had suddenly lifted something without touching it he wouldn't have connected the dots?

Cliegg, Owen, Beru, and Anakin are all dressed in tans and browns because they come from Tatooine. Anakin's robes are made of a finer weave because he abandoned the coarseness of Tatooine for the Jedi Temple's sterilized imitation of it. Padme sticks out from the rest because she comes from a water world and dresses in blue. (Beru wears blue underneath her tan clothes in Episode II, and finally transitions to a predominantly blue outfit in Episodes III and IV, taking Padme's place as the maternal advocate for the young hero's soul.)
