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.
this too! I'd laugh my ass off if they bring Vader back... as Anakin. The character universally hated from the PT. The reaction from all the Vaderheads when the news leaks would be priceless.... especially when they find out he was Gandalf'd by Leia! I can see it now..... Leia: "Han, I'm pregnant...." Han: "That's wonderful!" Leia: ".....it's not yours. ummmm... the shit just happened out of nowhere! Seriously" Han: "Pack up your shit and get the F out of my Falcon, bitch." How would that be for a curveball? Anyway, the whole idea is ludicrous and will not happen, hence why bother bringing it up?

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I'm really excited about the new Star Wars movies but would lose any and all enthusiasm if that rumor (which i think is BS) turns out to be true, that they're going to resurrect Darth Vader.

That's so stupid, it totally invalidates (in a dramatic character sense) the ending of ROTJ. And it would display such a massive lack of imagination, that it would just be a disappointment. "You were excited about seeing something new from Star Wars? HAHA sucks to be you, we're just doing a rehash".

I know Darth Vader is iconic, but the idea that the series can't survive as movies without him is actually pretty silly. People accept that Darth Vader is dead. He had about as definitive a death as possible. Nobody's really expecting to see him in Episode 7. Not necessary at all.

What's next? Midichlorians with force ghosts?
No, No, No. You're missing the big picture. Sony & Disney do a cross-promotional deal: Star Wars VII: (Force-)Ghostbusters III

Why would anyone want to bring Vader back? He's ruined, let him be. Bring back Palpatine, the real hero of the films.

Reading that description I can't help but wonder: is that book for REAL? That has to be a fake. It sounds silly.

No, it's real. I remember borrowing it from the school library when I was a kid. Although not really indicated on that page, it is a novel meant for children.

Um, no. The real hero of the films is R2D2.

No, Palps comes up with a plan ridiculously flawed and contrived to gain absolute power, and because everyone else is so incredibly stupid it actually works. And he's the best character in the series too.

Perhaps the term you're looking for then is "protagonist." Because Palpitane is definitely not a "hero."

Well he did turn whiny Hayden Christensen into badass James Earl Jones. That's pretty heroic in my book.

I when I was a little kid, I read and loved that entire series. It was my first exposure to SW outside of the movies.
