I think six movies about darth vader was enough. His story ended in return of the jedi. Bringing him back again would cheapen him.
I don't buy that for a second. Vader is the biggest icon of Star Wars and the ultimate scifi villain. He and the droids are the only characters they need to bring back.

I get the feeling that since George said the SW Saga was really the story of Anakin more than anybody else that we'll continue to see him in spirit form giving advice and wisdom to his son and daughter as they try to live and forge ahead in the post-Empire galaxy.

Anakin Skywalker doesn't need to come back, Vader does. I don't care if we never even find out who is inside the suit. Bring back Vader and make him genuinely menacing.

I'll ask this question again: why would Disney now owning Lucasfilm suddenly mean a change in either the overall creative direction of the SW franchise or in the way SW is/has been distributed? As myself and one other person have already said, Lucasfilm will remain an autonomous entity, albeit under the broader Disney Corporation umbrella, and if Disney didn't insist that all of its 'in-house' Marvel Comics productions be produced/distributed under the Walt Disney Pictures banner (which is only one of several studio labels under its umbrella [see below for the full list]), why would it do so for the SW films?
Bingo.

If Lucas and others insist on sticking with decades-old tradition, distributing the film through Fox and keeping the iconic 20th Century Fox logo and fanfare at the start of the new films then Disney won't lose a wink of sleep nor a dime over it. They don't suddenly stop owning or making money off of the franchise because they don't slap that Disneyland logo at the start of each film of the third Trilogy.

Just because someone can come up with a cool new opening doesn't mean they have to, and knowing the control freak that Lucas is he'll likely make sure the films remain distributed through Fox if he and his inner circle at Lucasfilm have any say about their own creation.

Badly, I'd imagine. That might provide more entertainment than the movie itself.

Actually, it might be interesting to pursue this angle. Maybe as a force ghost, there is still something that he needs to do to bring balance to the force--maybe we still have not learned what the balance truly is. It would be very cool if this story were dependent upon aspects of each of the previous trilogies.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

It'd be a chance for an aging Luke to learn more about the mother he never knew. Anakin's ghost could tell Luke about Padme and what she was like, provided he hadn't already told both of his kids about their mother in the intervening years between JEDI and Episode VII.

"Father...tell me more about my mother."

"She was a kind and a beautiful woman, Luke. And I loved her so much that I gave up everything...including my soul...because I wanted to save her..."

Something like that.

It's also worth noting that despite Disney buying Marvel, The Avengers opened with the Paramount mountain and the trailer for Iron Man 3 shows the same.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

^ That's precisely my point; Walt Disney Pictures is not the only studio label that Disney owns, nor is it the only label under which they release their films or allow their films to be released, so suggesting that we won't see the iconic 20th Century FOX logo and hear its accompanying fanfare with SW Episode VII just because Disney now owns Lucasfilm makes absolutely no sense.

Yep. In fact, I don't recall seeing a glimmer of a Disney logo when any of the Iron Man or Avengers films started. You saw the Paramount mountain then heard the audible flipping of the comic book pages that leads to the Marvel logo appearing on the screen. Then the films began.

That implies the ST will be about Luke and Leia and not a future generation. I think the latter is more likely.

That's only because of a prior deal. Starting with Thor: The Dark World, the Paramount logo will be gone.

Damn, now I can't remember where I read it. I just remember reading that the Iron Man 3 is the last movie that'll have the Paramount logo in front of it.
