You know who worked well together in A Night at the Museum II?

Darth Vader and Oscar the Grouch.

Get the fricking band back together.

Screw Anakin Skywalker, they should just put some new evil bastard in the Vader suit and carry on with a new Darth Vader.

Is what he wears a customized one off, or does everyone who has suffered horrific burns wear a near identical life support outfit?

If his suit is massproduced, odds are that it comes in a lot of other colours than black.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Wasn't there some passed on idea in the EU about having someone putting on Vader's suit or something? I think it's a bad idea, just like I think resurrecting Vader is a bad idea. We saw him on a pyre in ROTJ and then as a Force Ghost. With Maul, at least they had the wiggle room of not seeing his corpse.

Let the character die with some honor and dignity, and just create new villains. I hope this is just a rumor, but if it isn't, this project is already in trouble. They might as well just adapt the Thrawn trilogy, Dark Empire, Crimson Empire, or the New Jedi Order.

I wouldn't mind the new villain wearing a Vader knock off costume, but it better not be Crispy Old Anakin.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I thought I heard once the EU did something where Anakin/Vader actually ended up with two Force Ghosts, one of Anakin and one of Vader?

Hey, I'm not saying I like the idea, but it gets you Vader without gutting the redemption at the end of ROTJ.

That just sounds terrible. Two force ghosts?

What's next? Midichlorians with force ghosts?

Obviously take it with a grain of salt but there's a rumour that Vader will be back.
an article on TG Daily about the possibilities:

Should Vader return to Star Wars?

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

that idea is horrible. It would add nothing to the overall story of a Jedi/Sith war and makes no sense..... Why would the Emperor save, and keep, a half-assed (literally) version of Vader around when he could defrost the Anakin clone and get a full powered version to be his personal gang banger? Peeps really need to lay off the Vader coke. I hope someone at Lucasfilm will put these silly rumors to bed quick.

This was the initial idea for Dark Empire. That the armor would be passed onto someone new. There are touches of this idea in the Old Republic MMO with the armor worn by the Sith Warriors being clear predecessors to Vader's armor.

I think you may be confusing your own ideas or fan canon with the Expanded Universe. The position of the EU has always been Anakin was redeemed.

If they want to bring Vader back physically, I'd actually be more okay with tying it into the underdeveloped prophecy idea. Anakin was a virgin birth with unusually high force potential. Reincarnating him though the force or having him resurrect Gandalf style are - if not ideal - more narratively satisfying solutions than just cloning the guy off an assembly line.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Either way, would he really re-scar himself in order to need the suit? To have Vader back in the iconic suit and have it be Anakin requires a pretty convoluted set of circumstances storywise.
