So I’ve learned my lesson well from getting excited about rumours that turned out not to be true at all. And as a result of that, I’ve taken my grain of salt with this one too, even though several reputable websites such as Screen Rant has reported this might be an actual thing.
Until Disney release an official update about this, it’s a rumour and nothing more but one that’s got the Star Wars fandom in an uproar. The reason I suspect this is hitting fans quite hard is that many Star Wars fans actually despised Hayden Christensen’s portrayal of Anakin and then Darth Vader.
Let me get this clear right now though, I am NOT one of those people. I respect what Hayden did with the role and I feel bad for him taking so much crap from the Star Wars fans back then. In fact, I wouldn’t at all be surprised if he gave Disney the middle finger for everything the fans put him through.
On a positive note though, if you are one of those fans that dislikes what Hayden did with the role, you are safe to have your opinion on my blog in the comments. I will never stop anyone from having their own opinion as long as it remains civil and respectful.
This rumour has been going around for some time now, but just recently, it was doing the rounds online a few days back and I wanted to give it some time to breathe before I posted about it here.
I am SO EXCITED if this is more than rumour and I am totally behind whatever they choose to do with Anakin and Hayden. I welcome it with open arms.
So what do you think about this rumour? Are you for it or against? Let me know what you think in the comments, fam!
Stay safe out there, keep creating and I’ll catch ya tomorrow as always 🙂
