'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' News: Hayden Christensen To Return As Anakin?

After the release and success of Rogue One, Lucasfilm took the start of 2017 as the ideal opportunity to start dripping out information regarding Star Wars: Episode VIII, ahead of its release at the end of the year.

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is released in United Kingdom cinemas on December 15, 2017. For starters, Jedi are not the only ones that use the force.

The mysterious heritage of Daisy Ridley's Rey is one of the biggest secrets hinted at in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with new rumors surfacing today that claim Rey will finally learn about her parents in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

"Star Wars: Episode 8 - The Last Jedi" will be released December 15.

However it's even more likely to reflect the key scene in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

Star Wars News Net emphasized that with this in mind, fans should not expect any other footage from "The Last Jedi" to come out before the Star Wars Celebration. The website wrote, "Many people are betting that the first The Last Jedi teaser will be screened during the Star Wars fan event". The Star Wars Celebration will take place April 13 to 16. A friend of his from Ireland shared minor details about "Star Wars" Episode 8, highlighting a major lightsaber duel between Kylo Ren and Rey that was filmed at Pinewood Studios using a foam set piece, as per Express.

With the information from their contact as well as Disney and Lucasfilm's history of teaser and trailer releases for the recent "Star Wars" films, Star Wars News Net speculates that another teaser will be shown at the event apart from the BTS reel. Here is one good example of why the presence of Hayden Christensen as the Force Ghost of Anakin Skywalker might not be what you think it is. At this time the Lucasfilm president was asked when we might get to see the first trailer or footage for Star Wars 8, and while she didn't give a specific date she suggested it would be in the spring. But he is not the only one famous for being a Force Ghost on a Star Wars film.
