"Careful you must be when sensing the future, Anakin. The fear of loss is a path to the dark side."
"I won't let these visions come true, Master Yoda."
―Master Yoda and Anakin Skywalker.[src]

Force visions were an aspect of the Force, an ability to see into the future. An ability once possessed by all Jedi, in the final years of the Galactic Republic before its transformation into the Galactic Empire, it had grown rare. Some Sith, as Force users, were also capable of experiencing Force vision.


Yoda, as one of the Jedi's most powerful masters, was able to see into the future, though he understood that Force prophecy was not absolute and that the future was always in motion.[3] His visions led him to foresee the fall of the Jedi in the Clone Wars and even his own death.[4] Prior to the Clone Wars, the Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas had foreseen the galactic conflict, but his ideas of raising an army in defense of the Republic had been dismissed as too extreme.[5][6]

Anakin Skywalker had extremely powerful Force visions in his sleep, and his visions were never known to be wrong. He foresaw the death of his mother following terrible torture by Tusken Raiders and was unable to stop it, his mother dying in his arms.[7] Later, he witnessed through the Force his own wife's death in childbirth and, in becoming Darth Vader to try to prevent it, ended up causing it.[8]

Depa Billaba was able to receive visions during meditation and to pass them on through touch to her Padawan, Caleb Dume. This gave her enough forewarning to fend off her clone trooper battalion long enough for Dume to evade Order 66.[1] Dume was taught that visions were difficult and nearly impossible to interpret; one's emotions could cloud them and it took training and discipline to see things clearly. He later passed on these teachings to Ezra Bridger after his padawan misinterpreted his first vision.[9]

One of the most powerful Sith Lords of all time, Darth Sidious was able to use the dark side to peer into the future and manipulate events on a galactic scale to suit his ends. Despite this, he was unable to foresee his own end, when Darth Vader turned from the dark side to help his son Luke to overthrow him.[10]
