Default Should we see the ghost of Hayden Christensen

err I mean Anakin Skywalker


or if the ghost/spirit/astral projection of Anakin does appear would you rather it be a CGI version of the original actor (kinda like they did for Marlon Brando's jor-el in superman returns)


or a new/different actor altogether

again assuming they use the concept at all

Anakin shouldn't age anymore since he is dead but he should have grown older than that in 20 or so years since episode 3 so I didn't know why they used that model unless he didn't age since he became an cybernetic being. But it reallt doesn't matter to me either way as long as the movie is good.

I never understood how Anakin had the ability to ghost out since he was dark side and it seemed like it needed to be studied

The Christensen ending is an abomination that should never have happened. The sooner Disney restores order to the universe by releasing the original trilogy on Blu-Ray without Lucas' OCD-induced changes, the better.

Hayden Cristensen's ghost is the biggest mistake ever made in a SW movie. It doesn't make any sense. If they use Hayden's ghost then why not use Ewan Mcgregor's?

Does Disney actually have the rights to do that? For some reason I thought the rights to the old trilogy were staying with 21st Century Fox.

Yes and no. They call the shots (via LucasFilms) but Fox handles distribution. So Disney would make money on royalties, but Fox would get a distribution cut.

This deal expires in 2020, so Disney might actually just hold off until then - that's just my guess.

I'd see it like this:

Winter 2015/2016
Ep 7 Blu-ray

Winter 2017/2018
Ep 8 Blu-ray

Winter 2020/2021
Ep9 Blu-ray
ST Blu-ray
OOT Blu-ray (unaltered with remastered colour at 1080p & the Special Edition)
PT Blu-ray (Unaltered and Special Edition)
And some Ultimate Saga Blu-ray thing (including Theatrical and Special Editions) and maybe another version that also includes Clone Wars or something.

Yeah, if Anakin comes back as a Ghost, it has to be Hayden, as far as I'm concerned.

The very thought of Hayden in any form appearing in Episode 7 makes me cringe.

Everyone knew right away that it was Darth Vader when he appeared, even I did when I was 5 and I thought the Death Star Scenes were inside the bunker Han and Leia were trying to get into. It makes no sense that Anakins ghost would look like Hayden when Anakin the Jedi "Returns" by killing the Emperor and saving his son.

You mean the "random old man" we saw under Vader's mask? Anakin aged. Obi-Wan and Yoda's ghosts reflected their ages upon dying. Why is Anakin different in that respect?

It's a nonsensical alteration. That said, if Anakin's ghost does return, they'll obviously use Hayden.

Yeah, that 'random old man' comment made no sense, and was baiting for a stupid fight.

When the mask comes off he's a hairless, eyebrowless, pallid, scarred man. Why would he then show up as a ghost looking like he never looked like in life? That makes less sense than the Hayden ghost.

Darth Vader died as an old man, Anakin died on Mustafar.

This argument still exists? Geez.

Then you're saying that once Vader killed the Emperor, he remained Vader, and went back to being Anakin only after he'd physically died.

But as the unmasking scene proves, Anakin was reborn once he threw the Emperor down the shaft. The movie spells this out crystal clear.

Anakin. Was. Last. Alive. AS. An. Old. Man.

I don't care either way. I'd prefer we didn't see Anakin's force ghost at all :/. As for how he had the ability when it needed to be studied? Well he is the chosen one after all.

I never really saw Anakin as the chosen one. I think that title goes to Luke. Luke was the one that was able to use his angery to defeat Vader but still not go over to the dark side. In the process he was able to save his father and bring Anakin back from the Sith's control. Thus Luke brought balance to the force. Anakin was connected to it by being Like's father though. So in a way Anakin did bring balance to the force but only by being the father of the Jedi master that saved everyone.

A common misconception that Luke is the chosen one. It's Anakin which was confirmed by Lucas himself. Vader killed the Emperor and in the process died himself brought destroying the sith and fulfilling the prophecy.

I think it would make sense for Anakin's ghost to appear to Luke or Leia; that is assuming that they are in episode 7. He doesn't have to be in too many sceens either. I would have him show up to warn one of his children that there is another Sith Lord and to be mindful of the dark side.

No, if there's a Force ghost to be had, it should be Yoda. That's the only one who won't have fans whining this way and that about old debates, and it makes more sense for the greatest Jedi Master of all time to be the one talking to Luke et al.
