The Force Ghost Of Anakin Skywalker Was Proposed To Be In The Force Awakens

Making Star Wars

I recently picked up the Art Of Star Wars The Force Awakens book, and in it concept artist Iain Mccaig explains how he proposed the idea of having the Force Ghost of Anakin Skywalker appear in Episode VII! I think that this idea may still be forming and we may actually see this come true in Episode 8. Rumors have been circulating over the last few months that the stunt team that worked on Force Awakens is also training Hayden Christensen who portrayed Anakin Skywalker in the prequels. I have taken some screenshots of the Anakin ghost pages from the book, check them out:

Great thing this wasn't the case.

Then Larry Kasdan took over as writer and made a black stormtrooper (read: up yours, Lucas.) All stormtroopers were NOT clones of Boba Fett. How dumb would that be? Why would Han be scared at all of Boba Fett if the guy couldn't hit the broadside of a star destroyer?

"All stormtroopers were NOT clones of Boba Fett."

First, you mean Jango Fett, not Boba Fett. That was already established to be the case during the originals so I'm not sure what you're going on about. There was previous-canon stuff that addressed this and there's new stuff that brings this up now.

No. Jango wanted to "keep one for himself" which is Boba Fett. All of the clones are the same as Boba Fett, which is what I meant to say.

It only became canon when Lucas made those abominations. There were clones, certainly, not Boba Fett.

It wasn't established that Stormtroopers were clones the exact same as Boba Fett in 1977, 1980, or 1983.

So, no, it wasn't already established. It came much later after Lucas decided to defeat the Empire with a bunch of rock wielding muppets rather than Wookies as had been originally written.

It came after he made the decision to end the original trilogy with happiness and parties rather than how the new trilogy started: Leia struggling to hold the Republic together and Luke heading off "into the sunset" to be a Jedi Master.

That is why I made the comment "Up yours, Lucas."

It is quite clear from the dialogue in A New Hope that stormtroopers aren't clones. It is also noticeable because though Luke is "a little short for a stormtrooper" throughout the movies they are different sizes. The reference to the Clone Wars by Obi Wan and Luke makes it clear that the Clone Wars were not about a bunch of Boba Fetts running around missing everything they shot at.

So, this is almost 20 years after the establishment of the franchise that suddenly the first generation of Stormtroopers were clones. Then they discontinue using them within 21 years or less (since Luke is 21 in Episode IV).

We don't even get them to be clones until 2004-2005.

@thorstein

Let's just keep to the point at hand. I really don't care about your pent-up rage at Lucas' storytelling decisions. Anyways, even in A New Hope there's a line brought up by Luke about attending the Imperial Academy when he's with his aunt + uncle. Considering the various heights PLUS the rapid growth of clones mentioned on Kamino, it's possible that most would've died off from old age in that batch.

Not to mention the new canon brings up The Battle of Kamino that took place during Imperial rule. Even in Battlefront II, it depicted Kamino resisting the Emperor and destroying all their research.

That means Boba Fett is an old codger about to kick off from old age.

He isn't and that is why it doesn't work.

Attack of the Clones literally gave us a few lines of dialogue on that subject. When Jango Fett came to Kamino to take part in this cloning procedure, he only made 1 special request: an unaltered clone to take as his son. He would age just like a regular boy, which is why he's only 10 years old in Ep. II and pre-teen in The Clone Wars series.

I wouldn't be too surprised if Yoda, Anakin, and Obi-Wan appeared as a force ghost.
