    The official Star Wars site has officially announced the schedule for this year's Star Wars Celebration, taking place in Chicago (April 11-15). This is probably going to be the biggest Star Wars event yet, considering the amount of new movies, TV series, VR experiences, books and comics, merchandise, and games  that will be revealed for the first time. But of course this event will be bittersweet as well, as we see the end of an era - the Skywalker saga. Still the future is in front of us, and we should always look ahead....

    It's time for Hayden to come back to Star Wars...he's part of it, and whether some like it or not, he is Anakin Skywalker. The PT cast has been in the shadows for so long, and it's time for them to come out and be a part of that GFFA that so many millions love.

    It's time...

    Aye. Regardless of what you think of the special edition changes, we now have a opportunity to have Anakin and Luke having a scene together. I doubt it'll happen... but one could dream.

    I'm with ya' on that one. I think it'd tie it all together nicely having Anakin and Luke to appear to Kylo in a "WTF are you doing???" moment...or something.
