If Jones is healthy and doesn't mind, why not....Disney's pockets are deeper than the Marianas Trench and if they want the original voice of Darth Vader they can probably afford him. I very much doubt he asks Jude Law or Clooney prices for any of his TV projects.
Did you ever see his appearance on Will & Grace?

Re: New Star Wars animated show "Rebels" coming fall 2014

That was a great appearance and that line stuck with me over the years. Yeah, he seems very willing and open-minded to do voiceover, commercial and cameo work and I hope he's approached by the producers of Rebels to revive Vader at some point.

Not to beat a dead ronto, but I'd hate to think the last time we hear James Earl Jones' voice in Star Wars is him yelling "NOOOOOOOOOO!!!"

His recent appearance on The Big Bang Theory would make me think he's at least receptive to the idea.

He could be used in the ST - and by that I certainly do not mean that he should return, as Vader, in the flesh in some nonsensical way, as the internet rumor mill would have it. He could appear in an old hologram recording or even a flashback sequence. If it were up to me, I would have it turn out that he made a holocron at some point during the Dark Times. That way you could have a Force-sensitive character find the Vader holocron and use it to train in the dark side with holographic Vader as the "master".

ABRAMS PLEASE DO THIS.

Re: New Star Wars animated show "Rebels" coming fall 2014

Between something along the lines of what you suggest and a pretty fair chance of Anakin's Force spirit appearing in at least one of the Sequel Trilogy films I'd say it's close to 100% certainty we'll see Darth Vader in the new movies, even if it's just from a certain point of view.

Nothing is close to !00% unless it's confirmed.

Re: New Star Wars animated show "Rebels" coming fall 2014

That's why I said ”close.” This is Disney we're talking Darth Vader. One version or another of him even if it's a memory, holorecording or flashback is highly likely because he's the biggest and most profitable character in the entire Saga. The Mouse and Lucasfilm aren't likely to just sit on that.

Sure, there's a chance there won't be some kind of appearance, but I don't I think there are many that probably believe there won't.

They can milk him just fine in Rebels, not sure about the new movie since everybody knows he is dead.

Re: New Star Wars animated show "Rebels" coming fall 2014

Somehow I doubt the galaxy is just going to forget about the imposing, evil, mechanical Darth Vader - the Emperor's Right Hand, who enforced the Empire's doctrine of fear - any time soon.

Whether or not Vader shows up in the film is certainly a question, but considering how iconic his image and voice are, there's certainly a very strong possibility that LFL/Disney finds some way of incorporating one or the other (and possibly both) in the film.

Well, SW is a universe where cloning exists...

Although I hesitate to mention that, because it creates the disturbing possibility of Hayden Christensen's return.

Or Jake Lloyd's likeness, for that matter. Wouldn't that be a hoot.

Yipeee!

Re: New Star Wars animated show "Rebels" coming fall 2014

Back between TESB and ROTJ, my working theory was that "there is another" meant that Luke had been cloned/was a clone, and that that was also the meaning of Luke seeing his own face in Vader's mask in that vision in the cave. We'd only heard of The Clone Wars in the first film, but that had made a big impression obviously. Yes, I was a fanboy, but in retrospect it's really not all that far-fetched, especially if you consider the origin finally revealed of Boba Fett.

Re: New Star Wars animated show "Rebels" coming fall 2014

We might be looking at a holorecording or flashback of Vader's career, that or Hayden appearing as Anakin's Force ghost - Vader, if you will, from a certain point of view. Technically if Anakin Skywalker appears it sort of counts as a Darth Vader scene in the movie even if Hayden is costumed in nothing but the spectral robes of a deceased Jedi Knight who's become one with the Force.

But yeah: the galaxy isn't going to just forget about Vader or the Emperor, even 30-odd years after the Battle of Endor. Vader and his Master ruled much of the galaxy with an iron fist for a generation and imposed a particularly insidious (no pun intended) form of sterile authoritarianism over all the worlds and systems that their rule touched. If Disney and Lucasfilm didn't insert Vader into Episode VII in some form or another it'd be pretty surprising.

Let him have a statute or something, but the real playa was Palpatine.
