Is Hayden Christensen set for Star Wars: The Last Jedi as Anakin Skywalker?

June 13th, 2017 by Marc Comments

So, after Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out it was revealed that Anakin Skywalker, played by Hayden Christensen, was almost in the movie… probably as a Force ghost (you can read the whole story here).

However, as we now know, it didn’t happen.

But now the rumour is back again with word being that Christensen has been spotted Pinewood Studios where the movie is being filmed.

According to Youtuber Zeroh: “Just recently Hayden Christensen was at Pinewood Studios in the UK. The reports are saying he was there… suggest that he will have a small part in The Last Jedi.

“We heard the same exact reports when it came to Frank Oz voicing Yoda. It appears that Yoda is coming back as a Force ghost and that’s pretty much a certain now.”


We have had a strong feeling for a while that there is something to this one… we get the feeling we’ll see Anakin back in the new movies, although we’re not sure how or why.

Would you like to see him return? Let us know…
