2. Prequel tie-in (cant watch the O.T as seperate have to watch the prequel story to know who he is)
3. Near enough the same age as Luke
4. Old Yoda Old Obi Wan Young Anakin
Though I can accept the Lucas reason(about his soul dying or something) it does not look right,
_he was around the same age than OB1, that makes the friendship stuff better.
_he was a way better actor than hayden.
_he was proud and warm in the ghost scene, hayden is just ...wondering what he is doing here!
_when i think Anakin Skywalker or Darth Vader, i think Shaw, i can't watch the OT and picture that it's hayden !
Hayden looks kinda evil
Hes the right age
If you havnt seen the Prequels you could work it out, but Some young guy appearing, WTF?
Fighting the frizzies, at 11.
2. He doesn't fit in with the other two ghosts (agewise), and since he doesn't fit in, his teenage angst might kick in, and he'll get mad and kill the other two ghosts for not accepting him.
3. Impossible to make connection without having seen the prequels. Lucas is practically forcing the prequels down our throats.
4. Sebastian looked like a kind, fatherly figure to Luke when they looked at each other. There's no father/son moment with Haydakin.

C3PX said: Gaffer is like that hot girl in high school that you think you have a chance with even though she is way out of your league because she is sweet and not a stuck up bitch who pretends you don't exist... then one day you spot her making out with some skinny twerp, only on second glance you realize it is the goth girl who always sits in the back of class; at that moment it dawns on you why she is never seen hanging off the arm of any of the jocks... and you realize, damn, she really is unobtainable after all. Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming... Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.
Not that I liked Jake Lloyd or anything, but come on...
Red heads ROCK. Blondes do not rock. Nuff said.
Because I cannot take Lucas trying to make the prequels 'match up' with the OT.
It looks out of place, Luke just unmasked Shaw on the death star so it should be the same person he unmasked. If Lucas believed in his own logic, why isn't Qui Gonn there?
Hayden Christensen is terrible (IMO) in the first place, why must pop up in the OT?
It's just another excuse for Lucas to change for the sake of change.
Hayden is no way near as good an anakin skywalker as shaw was, similar to the younger generation thinking Ewan McGregor is better than sir alec, utter blaphemy.
“Always loved Vader’s wordless self sacrifice. Another shitty, clueless, revision like Greedo and young Anakin’s ghost. What a fucking shame.” -Simon Pegg.
That's how it was back in 83. If Lucas wanted us to see his youthful bastard idiot self restored, he would have taped and composited into the shot, some guy having a hotdog or something during their break from work unaware of the camera. That's prettymuch how he films actors like Hayden for scenes like this...
