RUMOR: Hayden Christensen Returning To The ‘Star Wars’ Universe?

Sep 22, 2015

In some slightly depressing news the guys over at Making Star Wars have revealed some news regarding Darth Vader himself. According to their sources Disney is looking to bring Darth Vader back for Star Wars: Rogue One since it takes place before A New Hope but also some sort of appearance in Star Wars: Episode VIII. They go onto actually reveal a team from the U.K will be soon heading to the US to start training with Anakin Skywalker himself Hayden Christensen to play the Dark Lord of the Sith.

While many Star Wars fans blame Christensen wooden acting for the problems with the prequel trilogy it does seem odd that he would have to be in the Darth Vader suit. All you really need is a stand-in and re-hire James Earl Jones to provide the voice? You don’t need Hayden Christensen to play Darth Vader since he will be in a suit the entire time anyway.

Have you seen this:

This also begs the question why bring back such a mediocre actor like Hayden Christensen and not Ewan McGregor who was clearly the best thing from the prequels and has on numerous occasions asked to return as Obi-Wan Kenobi.
