    With more and more rumors that Billy Dee Williams may be reprising his role as Lando in Episode 9 and the dwindling list of OT characters that remain, who do you think we may see in Episode 9? Since this movie is not only the conclusion to the sequel trilogy, but also wraps up the Skywalker saga for the foreseeable future, I think we may get a decent number of cameos from both the OT and possibly the PT, particularly I think we may see Hayden again as a force ghost Anakin.

    Well, Hayden/ Anakin's Force Ghost has been rumoured for Ep7 and Ep8, including being featured in concept art. So that might still be a possibility.
    Maybe a Obi-Wan Force Ghost as well?

    Bringing Han back one last time in a flashback would be cool, too. I know it's been said Leia won't be CGI'd, but seeing the Big Three one last time on screen would be a big surpise. Perhaps starting the film with a flashback prior to ep7, with Luke leaving to the island, or taking Ben with him for his training.
    Pretty wishful thinking, but one can hope.


    Not a character, but a rumour from before ep7's release, ánd featured in concept art:

    Characters diving in an ocean on Endor, to retrieve something from the Emperor's tower on the second Death Star. That's an image I would very much like to see on the big screen.

    Well obviously we need Jar jar's grandson, Cup Cup. Is SW really SW without a Binks?

    Naw but seriously, I'd really love to see Wedge Antilles. He's a stalwart of the EU, and he could do great in the new world. I understand that Poe is basically him+other stuff, but there is definitely room for him as a side character in IX, and maybe something bigger later on.

    Lando is a given. I really want to see Anakin's force ghost or a flashback of Anakin too. That's everything.

    I agree. It looked cool, but it doesn't make much sense. Haha!

    I guess it depends on how they'd use him for me.
    Lando makes sense because of Carrie's passing, we need that final tie to the old guard before the new can fully usurp.

    Other than who we know is going to be in it, I don't need to see old versions of most of the others.
    The aging action star thing was fun in The Expendables but even that got old fast. (heh)

    *young stars in peril when through a cloud of smoke, geriatric stars of yesteryear walk in to save the day*

    Take the new Jurassic movie. Jeff Goldblum is 65 years old. Sixty Five. People are mad he was only in a few small scenes. I don't need to see 65 year old Jeff Goldblum running from dinosaurs.

    The character I’d love to see having a decent role in 9 is Maz, much more than any other character in the PT or OT. She is wise and cool and honestly one of the best things I’ve seen in a fantasy film in a good while.

    With JJ coming back, I think there is a good chance we get to see more of Maz

    I agree. Especially since she has been making appearances in the Star Wars Forces of Destiny shorts on YouTube. I wouldn’t mind her having a bigger role in this one where she gathers all the original characters that remain to assist the resistance (like Lando). I could see them set it up as an almost Hoth like scenario where the resistance is gathering it’s forces in hiding and Maz is the one who connects everybody to the location.

    I would to like to see Lando again.
    Snoke in a flashback.
    And a little bit more of Maz, maybe she can explains how the lightsaber was found finally.

    Anakin doesnt make any sense to me. I hope JJ dont bring him back. Forceghost Lukes makes much more sense.

    With Carrie Fisher gone, Forceghost Anakin could take over the role to be there for Ben if Luke can't talk him down.
    Most likely he would accept him as a proxy, so having Hayden Christiansen as a forceghost would not only be a nice to have cameo, but actually help the story to drive forward.

    I still want Anakin to play a part in Kylo's redemption, but it's more likely to have Luke haunt Kylo (see "Luke will haunt Kylo like he did with Cade Skywalker). Anakin should definitely appear at the end of the movie in a victory celebration 2.0. It's JJ after all. Haha!

    All the force ghosts of christmas pasts will be there: Qui Gon, Obi Wan, Anakin, Yoda and Luke. There'll be a big porg bbq and everyone gets medals. This is apparently how they will tie the trilogies together. I heard if from an animated uncle who works in sanitation at Lucasfilm.

    On a more serious note, I'd like to see: DJ, Lando and the knights of Ren.

    OT characters showing up means death. I'd rather not have any character that I am aware be in the ending Episode.

    If it is new characters- then DJ and the Knights make the most sense.

    Oh this one is easy: Vega Fett, by far. Grandson of Boba Fett. And, if this excerpt from the leaked script of Episode IX is legit, then I'm in for a wish fulfillment. Now, I have the entire script if anyone wants to read it. I don't know that it's legit, but this is a genuine excerpt, so, beware if you're not wanting any possible spoilers for EIX. You've been warned.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Finn casts an unsure look at Rey.

    REY (to Finn): This is just pathetic. He's worse than Luke ever was. Maybe we should just...

    SUDDENLY the sound of blaster fire. The cantina grows quiet. Rey and Finn turn in surprise to see a shadowy figure in the doorway of the cantina. He steps forward into the dim light. He is dressed in Mandalorian armor and is pointing his blaster rifle at Rey and Finn. Lando looks on with glazed eyes.

    VEGA FETT: Hands where I can see them.
    REY: Who are you?
    VEGA FETT: Name's Fett. Vega Fett.
    FINN: The infamous bounty hunter?
    LANDO (surprised): Vega Fett? Of Boba Fett?
    VEGA FETT: My grandfather.
    LANDO: That's impossible I saw your grandaddy fall in a hole and die!
    VEGA FETT: Shows how much you know about clones, you old geezer.
    LANDO: What you talking bout, clones? He were a clone?
    VEGA FETT: That's right. Grandfather cloned himself several times. That Fett in Jabba's palace was Fett number 4. The original Fett was no where near Tatooine the day it all went down.
    LANDO: There too many clones it's confusing.
    VEGA FETT: That's the point.
    LANDO: So he didn't die like a chump?
    VEGA FETT: He lived to hunt bounty many years afterward.
    LANDO: What happened to him?
    VEGA FETT: Fell to his death when his jetpack malfunctioned on Coruscant.
    LANDO: Boy that the same as fallin in a hole! You grandaddy was nothin but a chump, and you...

    Vega Fett blasts Lando in the chest, throwing his lifeless body across the table.

    REY: No!
    FINN: Lando!
    VEGA FETT: Step away from the has-been, traitor.
    FINN: You'll pay for that.
    VEGA FETT (shakes head slowly): I'll get paid for that.
    REY: What are you planning to do with us?
    VEGA FETT: What a bounty hunter always does. Collect. Now, step this way. Kylo Ren is expecting you.

    Rey and Finn exit the cantina under the gun of Vega Fett. Lando lay sprawled across the table in a pool of whiskey. His eyes open wide in shock, a blaster burn smoulders in his chest.

    ---KYLO RETURNS TO THE LIGHT SIDE

    INT. REACTOR STATION WAREHOUSE. DAY.

    Kylo and Rey square off, sabers ignited. Rey is collected, brave and determined. Kylo eyes her warily. He is reserved yet threatening. He drags his saber along the metallic floor, searing the surface and sending a shower of sparks into the air.

    KYLO (flinching as some sparks hit him): Ouch.

    Rey holds her saber up in preparation for any onslaught that may be coming. She moves into a fluid stance, defiant.

    KYLO: I saw you on the monitor earlier. Fighting your way through the ignition passages.
    REY: Good for you!
    KYLO: I see you're still wearing the slave bikini.
    REY: Because that creep Vega Fett forced it on me!
    KYLO: What a tool.
    REY: He was!
    KYLO: What happened to him?
    REY: He fell off a platform to his death because of a jet pack malfunction!
    KYLO (angry): You see this is why I don't wear a jet pack! Those things are death traps!

    Sadly JJ hates prequel Anakin so we may just get a "shadowy" ghost Anakin looking kinda Vaderish.

    I think it would be cool to see Mara brought back into cannon, but to what degree do you think they would do this? Would you be upset if she is brought in and has zero ties to the Skywalker family or Luke and instead is developed into a new character?

    But due to the nature of episode 9 and the fact that this wraps up not just this trilogy, but potentially the entire Skywalker saga, do you think JJ may put his dislike of prequel Anakin to the side in order to wrap up everything?

    I had an idea last night, and honestly even I'm not sure what I think about it.

    Would you like to see Ahsoka in episode IX? They have already done one example of "putting stuff from TV on the big screen," and this could be a big boost for her character.
