Rumor Central: Hayden Christensen to Reprise Role as Anakin Skywalker

Hayden Christensen in 'Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith'

Star Wars: Episode VIII might have just gotten a whole lot more exciting. The latest Star Wars rumor comes from Making Star Wars, who’s inside sources are being told something BIG. Here’s the scoop.

“A team in the U.K. are soon heading to the U.S. to begin training Hayden Christensen for a Star Wars: Episode VIII appearance of some sort.”

Yes, you read that right. It appears both Darth Vader and possibly Anakin Skywalker could return for future Star Wars films. Vader of course would be making a small appearance in the first anthology film Rogue One.

I’m not too surprised to hear that Christensen will be involved somehow in the films going forward. If he does return, I expect him to be what’s called a “force ghost“.

'Star Wars' Force Ghosts

Mark Hamill is all but confirmed to be in Episode VIII, and perhaps the troubles of Episode VII will cause him to get in touch with his father for guidance. This is all speculation on my part, which is all we can really do at this point.

Now, I know there are some mixed reactions out there regarding this news. I’ve read so many negative comments in regards to Christensen’s performance as Anakin Skywalker in the prequels, but was it entirely his fault?

Let us know what you think about Hayden Christensen appearing in Star Wars again. Are you excited or does the picture below sum it up for you?

  1. I’d rather the prequels weren’t referenced too much. Hayden was miscast in the role which isn’t his fault, also he didn’t have a say on how the character was written either. The role of Anakin in the prequels was just poorly written.

    • I agree. Hayden’s best work was in Episode III thankfully, because that was the most important film in the prequels.
      I’d be open to an Anakin appearance via. Force Ghost.
