x We’ve been hearing rumblings that Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader will appear in Star Wars: Episode IXfor some time now. After all, the film’s being billed as the finale to the Skywalker Saga, so it’d make sense for perhaps the most important member of the family to at least be mentioned. On top of that, there are reports that the movie will have a number of throwbacks to the Prequel Trilogy, with Disney having apparently made peace with it (there’d even been rumors they were considering remaking it). But now a YouTuber claims to have an exclusive inside leak about what’s actually going to happen in Episode IX and though we advise taking this with a grain of salt, they’re saying they have confirmation that Hayden Christensen will indeed be returning as Anakin Skywalker. And that’s not all, as he’s going to appear as a hybrid Anakin/Vader Force Ghost to Rey, with half his face being Vader and half being Anakin. … [Read more...] about Star Wars: Episode IX Rumored To Feature An Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader Hybrid
x Rumors of Anakin Skywalker or Darth Vader making an appearance in the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy have been making the rounds online for longer than Disney has even been releasing these films, and so far, there’s been nothing to show for all the hearsay. Nonetheless, with Star Wars: Episode IX said to be the grand finale for the entire Skywalker Saga, this seems like as good an opportunity as any for the famously nostalgic J.J. Abrams to play this card, and in a new piece from CinemaBlend, the case is assessed on how likely it is that there might finally be some substance behind all murmurings. In the case’s favor, it’s worth noting that a return of both Vader and Anakin could have some thematic significance, not just because Episode IX is bringing the Skywalker Saga to a close, but also because the late villain’s dual identities could serve as a fitting reflection of his grandson Kylo Ren’s own crisis of conscience. This notion of being torn between the … [Read more...] about Will Darth Vader Have A Cameo In Star Wars: Episode IX?
x Though rumors of Hayden Christensen making an appearance in Star Wars: Episode IX have popped up a couple of times in the last year, the claim has never come across as particularly convincing. After all, Prequel-era Anakin is easily one of the most frequently ridiculed characters of the entire Star Wars franchise, suggesting that this is one nostalgia buzz that J.J. Abrams might want to give a miss. Nonetheless, the Express is now relaying the alleged intel that Disney is currently “negotiating to bring in Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker for a sequence in Episode 9.” And while the details don’t go much further than that, this assertion is already sounding pretty dubious. For one thing, with principal photography on Episode IX expected to wrap in February, this sounds pretty late in the game to still be in negotiations. Granted, we’ve heard it said previously that the atmosphere on set is significantly “looser” this time round, with the team … [Read more...] about New Star Wars: Episode IX Rumor Says Hayden Christensen Will Return
