Ever since the announcement of the coming movie Star Wars VII, a lot rumors about the casts and crew have been circulating around. The latest one being Hayden Christensen is said to return in the Star Wars franchise. According to a report by AceShowbiz, a team from UK will be flying out to US to begin training the actor for an appearance in the upcoming movie. It is said that Christensen will either appear as Darth Vader in a flashback scene or would be resurrected by Kylo Ren, a character obsessed with Vader.
Although the rumors are not yet confirmed, AceSowbiz website posted additional information about the first movie of the Star Wars anthology movie, Rouge One. It was said that Darth Vader will also appear in the movie because a fully operational Darth Vader chest piece along with the helmet is kept in the creature shop for the next film.
Furthermore, if Vader is to appear in the next movie with a big role, several suits would have been made for him. If there is only one chest piece and a helmet available, it could mean that Vader is sure to make a reappearance in the story, but with very limited screen time.
Star Wars Episode VIII is set to be released on May 2017 directed by Rian Johnson. Rouge One is directed by Gareth Edwards and will be released on December 2016.
