Fan Theories About The Jedi Order We Can't Get Over

Vote up the fan theories about the Jedi Order that make the most sense.

In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, everyone's favorite space wizard Obi-Wan Kenobi teaches Luke a (very) brief history of the Jedi Order, stating that "for over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic," before their destruction nearly 20 years earlier. A "thousand generations" is a massive period of time that hasn't really been explored since Disney wiped out the old extended universe and established their new canon.

In 2021, Lucasfilm began publishing new, Jedi-centric material set in a period known as the High Republic, set approximately 200 years before the events of The Phantom Menace. While this absolutely begins to scratch the itch, with only a handful of new titles gracing bookshelves, Star Wars fans are deadset on theorizing about the Jedi Order and exactly what makes the organization tick.
