According to IGN, a previous concept for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” had Hayden Christensen reprising his role as a young Anakin Skywalker, the character that later becomes Darth Vader, in ghost form.

The report reveals that Anakin Skywalker would have returned as a ghost, likely seen by his grandson, Kylo Ren, the new “Star Wars” villain and son of Leia and Han Solo.
