    Force Ghosts are a SW thing since the first movie.
    - In ANH, ghost Ben helps Luke to achieve his heroic shot against the DS.
    - In ESB, ghost Ben comes again, sends Luke to Yoda, then reappears to complete his learning.
    - No force ghost at all in the PT, but we are given a glimpse to them, with the Qui Gon affair Yoda exposes to Obi Wan.
    - No force ghost in TFA as Jedi are all gone at this time...
    - In TLJ finally, ghost Yoda appears to Masta Luke to deliver him a last lesson.

    (IDK : everybody knows that)

    We can hope - and perhaps, for some of us, pray for... - several force ghost appearances in the upcoming episode 9.

    So the question here is all included in the thread title: according to you, which ghost will appear, and to whom ?

    (you can choose several options)

    First of all, happy new year!

    Back to the question, I enjoyed seeing the relationship between Luke and Rey and I think Force Ghost Luke will appear to Rey.

    In addition to that, I have a feeling that Anakin will appear to Rey too, and possibly Kylo Ren.

    It would be sweet to see if Force Ghost Anakin, Luke, Yoda and Obi Wan to appear to Rey or at least at the end.

    Not everybody would like this, but I would love to see all the Force Ghosts appear to give Rey strength for some great final battle. Yoda, Obi-Wan, Anakin, Qui-Gon and Luke, somehow contributing their energy to Rey to strengthen and encourage her. It would be such a powerful image of the Saga.

    I really want to see Luke basically haunting Kylo Ren, but I won't be heart broken if it doesn't happen as it is a pretty narrow request.

    Force ghost Luke should teach Rey and haunt Kylo Ren. Force ghost Anakin should also have one major scene with Kylo. You don't need Anakin to say anything. Just use that unused TFA concept:

    => Anakin turns to Vader to show Kylo he's on the wrong path.

    Imagine Kylo looking in the mirror, and suddenly it's just Anakin's burnt face staring back at him. Horror movie moment.

    If JJ wants to appease the butthurt fanboys, I'm guessing we'll see something like this in every second scene:

    Exactly this. Mike Zeroh (yes, Mike Zeroh) even made a video about this topic. => Kylo Ren is seeing Anakin in the refelction of a window.

    And?

    Well, why would they used his deformed look as a force ghost?

    For the sake of the story. For the sake of originality. For the sake of warning Kylo Ren what he will become if he doesn't stop. It's just a cool idea.

    Another idea I had a while ago would be that Kylo Ren is standing in front of a window. Behind him we see the force ghost of Anakin Skywalker who is laying down his hand onto Ren's shoulder. Ren is looking into the refelction and sees Darth Vader who is laying his hand onto Ren's shoulder. "He has too much Vader in him."

    I think the idea is that Anakin would choose to appear in his deformed state as a warning to Kylo. Or else, it's not actually Anakin's ghost, but a warning from the force in the form of a vision of Vader.

    Here's the thing though. Sure, fan service just for fan service is bad. But if this is really the end of the entire saga, then the appearance of past Force ghosts could really serve the story. It's a way to tie the whole saga together and it's already built into the story. We know these guys (except Mace maybe) are still out there. By bringing them back for a scene, you can create a sense of completeness and connectedness without stretching the plot to make Rey into Palpatine's clone's grandaughter's neice or something.

    Luke appearing to Rey is happening 100%. Luke to Kylo is a very strong possibility. Then there's Anakin - I really want him to show up, it would be a fitting return, but I'm not convinced J.J. has guts to do it. I hope to be surprised, though.

    And by the way I hate the idea of Anakin's Force ghost being corrupted or torn between the dark and the light. It undermines his redemption. Besides, I like the idea of Force ghosts being strictly a light side thing, because dark side users aren't able to truly let go and transcend the material world.

    This is so true. Anakin was fully redeemed. In ROTJ we see a completely normal Anakin force ghost whether it be the Sebastian Shaw version or the Hayden Christianson version. Besides undermining his redemption it also makes zero canonical sense.

    Luke will almost assuredly be in the film. From a story and business standpoint, it makes too much sense for him to still be in the story. I'd like to have cameos from Obi-wan and Yoda but would not be heartbroken if they are left out.

    I do think we need to see or hear something from Anakin. The entire saga began with him so it is only fitting for it to end with him in some way. Anakin's redemption in ROTJ makes me hesitant to imagine him as being the Vader/Anakin wraith that we've seen in concept art. It is a really cool concept but one that doesn't mesh well with the larger story if we consider its implications.

    Maybe this has been said before but it seems force ghost really only appear to those who have a direct connection to those seeing the ghost. That would mean for sure Luke appearing to Rey. Maybe Anakin to Kylo but not in the same sense. Maybe he appears like a vision or a reminder of what not to become. Luke will guide Rey, Anakin will only appear, if he does.

    Force ghost Luke to Rey, and maybe to Kylo.

    The other ones I don't think so.

    Ps. To the ones that think that force ghost Anakin must show up, or would like that he will appears:

    Which Anakin do you have in mind?
    The force ghost from the Special Edition (Hayden Christensen)?
    A different type of force ghost, deformed or in a mysterious way hidden his face?
    A CGI version of Sebastian Shaw?
    Or maybe some kind of apparition of Vader/Anakin in a different way of the traditional force ghost seen so far?

    In my cause is hard to accept an Anakin force ghost with Hayden Christensen in the end of ROTJ because I grew up with Sebastian Shaw's Anakin. But JJ has cool ideas, maybe he will surprises me in a different way, even if it was Hayden.
