RUMOR: Hayden Christensen May Appear As 'Darth Vader' In STAR WARS EPISODE VIII

Hayden Christensen's performance in the Star Wars prequels didn't go down well with either critics or fans a few years back, so you may want to find your torch and pitchfork now as it sounds like he might just return in Star Wars Episode VIII! Read on for details...

Rumours have been swirling all year about Darth Vader possibly making an appearance in Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards' Star Wars: Rogue One, and that's something which makes a lot of sense, especially when you take into account the fact that the movie takes place between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

Well, Making Star Wars (who have been fairly reliable for Star Wars rumours over the past couple of years) belive that there's a chance we will be seeing him as, "a fully operational Darth Vader chest piece along with  the helmet made it to the creature shop."

That's interesting and all, but here's where things take something of a surprising turn.
One of their sources claim that, "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."

They don't have any additional information beyond that, but this wouldn't be all that surprising, whether the actor is brought back to appear in the suit for flashbacks (he did after all wear it for Vader's scenes in Revenge of the Sith) or to possibly further flesh out Anakin Skywalker's backstory. Hell, he may even be a Force Ghost! We're really going to have to wait and see, and it's best to take this with a pinch of salt for now.
