    I'm okay with more passing of the torch moments. It needs to be done.
    Im glad we are moving on as well.

    But that leaves the ultimate question. Who will own R2 and Threepio?

    I would love for Obi-Wan to come back as a Force ghost, now that we've gotten Yoda as a Force ghost, too. I really think they could make it work with Ewan McGregor. I'd be more than happy if Wedge returned, too.

    I'm not opposed to Lando returning, but I feel like his return would require a lot of explanation in terms of why he's been absent from the past two films and why no one mentioned him. I don't understand the fans who genuinely think Lando appearing can fill the void left by Leia/Carrie Fisher, because he simply won't be able to. But I really would like to know what happened with his character and if he's still involved somehow.

    I saw someone else mention Hera earlier on and I'd be really thrilled if she made an appearance, but again, it seems highly unlikely.

    Prequels are a bit of a stretch considering the time gap, but it would be nice to see a couple of those planets--Naboo, Coruscant, or perhaps Utapau.

    The only character from the OT I am desperate to see is Lando, of course. I really don't understand how we wasn't part of the sequel trilogy to begin with.

    I just want Chewie and Artoo to have a better role in IX.
    I agree. Have we visted any established planets in the ST yet? We should.

    I want to see Lando plus all the ghosts. Is that really that hard to ask?

    In response to the question of how would Anakin be used if he appeared in 9...I think the answer is rather clear. There is really only one reason to include Anakin, in my opinion, if they decide to. He must confront Ben Solo. He could also talk to Rey briefly, maybe teach her a lesson about controlling the darkness within her or something of that nature...but, his main purpose in this trilogy would be to try to sway Ben to see that he's heading down the wrong path. That being said, I don't think it will work. We saw that in TLJ when Luke confronts his nephew on Crait. Luke tries to apologize and explain to Ben that he is sorry for letting him down. (I wanted to say abandoning him, but it didn't feel exactly right, although I think that's how Ben sees his entire family. Leia and Han abandoned him for their careers and Luke abandoned him out of fear for what he was to become. I know Luke didn't actually leave Ben, but emotionally I guess you could say he failed to see him for the lonely, frightened kid that he was.) Ben's response is the same thing I would've said if I were in his shoes: "I'm sure you are!" He just lashes out with all of his anger at Luke. I feel the same thing would happen with Anakin Skywalker. Maybe it already has. I just don't see why Kylo would actually be persuaded by anyone to change at this point unless it were either Rey or Finn. (I know...Finn? Right? That's just an idea I've had in my head since I saw TLJ and it's very unlikely, but it makes a little bit of sense when you consider that if Kylo turns, he's in the same position Finn was in during TFA. First Order Defector. AKA Traitor.) I can only see Anakin trying to make him see that he's falling into the same pattern that lead to him spending his life as a cyborg apprentice subservient to a fascist dictator. & I can see Kylo now, telling him that the difference between them is that he didn't allow his weakness to destroy him and that he actually achieved his goal: Kill the master and sit on the throne. I wouldn't be opposed to seeing Ben Solo return and attempt to absolve himself of his past transgressions, but I only see him heading deeper into the darkness when I try to plot out this thing logically. Han couldn't save him. Leia couldn't save him. Rey couldn't save him. (Yet???) Luke couldn't save him. & I don't think that Anakin can either, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't love to see him try.

    I think would make sense for Lando to appear in the film. He's going to be a huge part in Solo and he featured in Battlefront 2 so he will be very current. I'm predicting that Leia won't make an appearance and her death will be explained in the opening crawl so it would be good to still have a connection to the OT by having Lando make an appearance. Maybe if the film opens with Leia's funeral he could come to pay his respects and then decide to join the resistance to help out.

    I'd be all up for Calrissian returning, but as others have said, I think BDW is pretty much retired now... he'll be 81 in April, which would make him only 2yrs younger than Christopher Lee was in ROTS!

    If Lucasfilm really want to pass on the torch so-to-speak, then IX should have very limited links to the past... just Ghost Luke, Chewie and most likely the two droids. The only other option that feels likely would be Anakin, Yoda, Kenobi and Luke's ghosts being joined by Kylo or dare I say it Rey at the close of the trilogy... then Rian can make Ghost Wars! :p

    Yeah Rian set out in TLJ to move on from the past so maybe not having a past character in 9 would make sense. I'm sure if BDW was offered the opportunity to be in 9 he would come out of retirement for it. It really was great hearing him again in Battlefront 2. I'm hoping they don't go Ghost crazy! Luke makes sense but any others, no thank you.

    I could see a council of force ghosts to help guide and inform Rey so that gives space for Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Anakin, and Luke.

    It's only been a few days so if Billy Dee is up for it he could bring in some reinforcements. Wedge, Hera, and Chopper can ride with him.

    About anyone else and we are surely pushing the boundaries of Star Wars Episode IX: The Attack of the Shoehorned Fan Service if we already wouldn't have crossed the threshold.

    Anakin. Because it truly would bring it full circle.

    I think both Lando and Wedge should make an appearance.... Lando could be one of the allies in the Outer Rim who offers assistance to the resistance (so he need not be involved in many action scenes). Wedge is Snap's stepdad (in a way) so he can easily be given a more prominent role in the story, especially to explain past events (since he was the one tasked with pursuing imperials after the Empire fell).

    While I feel Leia is irreplaceable, maybe Wedge can take up Leia's resistance role in episode 9, while force ghost Luke and Lando can both handle the more personal aspect (the Ben part).

    A few ideas:

    Anakin - They could have a flashback or two showing Anakin as a ghost appearing to Kylo when he was training under Luke. I would have it happen not long after he finds out his Granddad was Darth Vader so when he appears as a ghost he is instantly fascinated. As time goes on the Anakin ghost starts getting darker and darker as he converses with Kylo. The big twist will be that it wasn't really Anakin it was Snoke projecting the image of Anakin the whole time as a way to slowly manipulate him to turn to the darkside. Fake Anakin Ghost can bring all sorts of insecuties

    Luke - Obviously he will return but when he does i hope he is only appearing to Kylo as a way to try redeem him. Luke could maybe reveal to Kylo how it was Snoke projecting Anakins image to him the whole time. Another twist could be that Luke uses some reverse physiology with Kylo and just offer his support.

    Lando, because why isn't he with the Resistence? In Battlefront 2, he was still a General (right?) and was helping The New Republic. What happened between that time period and 7? The only thing I could come up with his he could have felt betrayed by Leia and Han for not telling him about who Leia's father was during the events of Bloodline. I dunno seems strange that he wouldn't be there. Force ghost Anakin, for Kylo's arc.

    Either Anakan or Obi-Wan as a Force ghost. I'm ready for the new movies to fully embrace the prequels. Rebels does this sort of thing so well and it's always great.
