Anakin Skywalker was considered to return in both Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, however the main continuation where the man once in the past known as Darth Vader would’ve fit was Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. A while ago when Disney was starting to substance out its new Star Wars continuation set of three, there was a thought of Anakin returning in the principal portion.
A few bits of idea workmanship were drawn up, including of a somewhat stunning half-Anakin, half-Vader Force Ghost, however it seems like when Luke Skywalker’s part in the film was managed to simply an appearance at the end, there was justifiably no space for Anakin by the same token. Lamentably, it seems like The Rise of Skywalker was the one continuation where Anakin’s return wasn’t thought of. In reasonableness, the film is as of now stuffed.
However as the film that was intended to bring every one of the three sets of three of Star Wars together, it likewise feels inadequate without him. With Palpatine being vanquished again and the Skywalker adventure finding some conclusion, at that point the arrival of Hayden Christensen as Anakin would’ve been a decent touch to show how fans have excused him and the prequels, and to truly bind together all the times.
Christensen may return at another point, for example, in the Obi-Wan TV show, yet this would’ve been a thought big screen farewell. The Rise of Skywalker, in any case, doesn’t have an incredible reason for not bringing back Anakin, alongside Hayden Christensen playing him. While Christensen’s Anakin is heard in the film as one of the Jedi voice appearances who converse with Rey on Exegol, it’s not as amazing as a genuine appearance would have been.
All things considered, this was no simple spin-off, however the finish of the whole Skywalker adventure; that is a heritage any film would battle not to clasp under the heaviness of, but rather having its eponymous character show up would’ve made a difference. Indeed, even the film’s title would have fit with an appearance from Anakin, adding one more layer of importance to it as he cemented his own reclamation and help rout the Emperor by and by, and there were a few spots he would’ve worked.
