We’re getting closer and closer to the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and the rumour mill has being going nuts about whether or not Hayden Christensen will make a surprise appearance as Anakin Skywalker.
A video of Hayden and his Star Wars co-star Ian McDiarmid is adding fuel to the fire after the pair was seen together in Salt Lake City visiting a children’s hospital while they were in the area for FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention.
Many fans believe Anakin will return because if Emperor Palpatine can bounce back from being thrown down a Death Star shaft in Return of the Jedi, why can’t he? Let’s be honest, it wouldn’t exactly be that strange if he did make a comeback.
CinemaBlend reports that some fans believe the hospital visit was a marketing tactic, however, that idea doesn’t sound quite right considering Disney canceled their spotlight panel at the convention.
Now many people think the cancellation was to stop Christensen from maybe revealing his involvement in the film.
Surely Christensen and McDiarmid hanging out must mean something is going on, the timing just seems a little suss.
Chewbacca actor Joonas Suotamo recently teased that there are going to be multiple twists in the upcoming movie, so be prepared.
There’s certainly a lot of pressure on this film to wrap up the entire Star Wars franchise as we know it, so we hope it’s got a satisfying ending to go along with those surprises!
