The rumour that Christensen is in Ep 8 might now have some legitimacy. Given Rens obsession with Vader. But other than a flashback I can't see how it will work? And why is he in training for it? Force ghost is just gonna stand there, isn't it?

Ren twice asking Vaders helmet to 'show me again the power of the dark side'
Is he training him in ghost form somehow?

you sad about that bro?

ps Vader/Anakin being in it doesnt reference the prequels at all really..
my thinking is Snoke is tricking Ren and putting stuff in his head as Palpatine did with Anakin(visions & nightmares etc) so who's to say he's not fooling him with a fake force ghost of vader?

Nah, I don't care. I'm just saying they will never acknowledge them, and including Christensen would be an acknowledgment.

I agree the prequels have a toxicity and they should never reference them, but Vader doesnt belong to the preqels, he belongs to the entire story and casts a long shadow even over this new film, they'd be insane not to use him or feature him, and ome Disney exec was heard to say Vader will appear at some point, but we all just don't know when.

Not saying they won't use Vader. They just won't use Christensen.

Also, was that exec talking about Rogue One? Because he's definitely in that.

I'm pretty sure Vader has been confirmed.

I guess not exactly "confirmed," but a lot of outlets are reporting it based on credible rumors: http://screenrant.com/star-wars-rogue-one-darth-vader/

There is that great sequence with Vader in that rebels episode. I'd love to see more of Vader in his prime

I was thinking of making one dedicated to the Original Trilogy, and one dedicated to the Prequels. Would you hate me if I did that?

No, we actually need one for the prequels I think. I thought there was one for the OT but could be wrong. You just have to put Grievous in the OP.

Im not all that surprised. He's probably pretty upset after the untimely and sudden passing of his father.
