Or maybe it was the 40th anniversary and they brought back as many people as they could and Hayden realized he liked it and could also make a ton of money selling pictures and autographs.

Hayden probably wouldn’t have made the decision himself, due to the harassment he received for his performance as Anakin. It wasn’t his fault, but fans still bullied him, just like Jake Lloyd. Thankfully Hayden didn’t go through an emotional breakdown like Jake did, but I think he was still hesitant to show up at another Star Wars event prior to Celebration 2017 in Orlando.

Yes I wouldn’t be surprised if he skipped prior celebrations because of the PT hate. But I’m sure those fears went away completely at the 2017 celebration and that’s why he’s back (i.e. not because of IX).

I agree that’s why he’s returning, and I’m happy Hayden is doing so. We’re not exactly sure if he’ll be in IX because of his presence at Celebration, or the many rumors about Anakin’s appearance. We shall see.

On a side note, I’m shocked that Mark Hamill isn’t listed as a guest. I know he’ll have a small, yet significant role in IX, but he usually comes to Celebration almost every year. Maybe he will be there, but his appearance will be a surprise in Chicago?

It seems like they’ve been announcing guests slowly over time to build up hype. They haven’t announced basically anyone who’s in the ST will be there but undoubtedly a significant amount of the cast will be at the IX panel as a “surprise.”

I do hope the entire cast is there. Obviously J.J. Abrams will be there, but I do hope that Hamill, Ridley, Driver, Boyega, Isaac, and especially Kelly Marie Tran are there.

It was reported a week or two ago that Oscar Isaac would be attending for the first time, but as far as I know there hasn’t been an official confirmation.

As someone mentioned upthread, that alien looks straight out of Explorers. Doesn’t mean it can’t still be real, but I have my doubts.

Mark Hamill wouldn’t know.

he would know as much as any of you, which is practically next to nothing. so yes, i agree, he isn’t the final word, but i am very skeptical about that poster.

The difference is he probably just took a quick glance, thought “I haven’t seen this before,” and assumed it was fan made. If you look close, the poster includes images that are clearly from IX’s promotional photography and wouldn’t be available for fans to photoshop.

Well, this is the man who presented the world with a film titled ‘Star Trek Into Darkness.’

Another rumor making the rounds is Rey takes the Skywalker name as a title, which would make sense if the title rumor is on the money.

The more important question is what font the title appears as in the crawl.

No no no, the most important thing is clearly whether the camera will tilt up or down, or pan left or right - or even stay still - after the crawl fades.

What if it’s next Thursday? Or next Saturday? Friday seems oddly specific, unless you know something.

The Episode IX panel is on Friday at Celebration this year.

C-3PO with Chewie’s weaponary might suggest we’ll be saying goodbye to another classic character.

With our nervous friend C-3PO wielding a bowcaster, we could be saying goodbye to any number of characters 😉

Quite liking ‘Will Of The Force’ as a possible title for IX - a bit of a grower, that one.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

I wonder if Jonathan Frakes was ever on the list of potential directors for the new films? He’s certainly qualified.
