If there's to be a scene featuring Anakin Skywalker, it would of course need to be Hayden. If it calls for a fully suited Vader, James Earl Jones, it really matters not who wears the suit.

Obviously this is a rumor that might not have any basis in fact, but I should think that the implication of "Darth Vader" versus "Anakin Skywalker" implies the suit, no matter when it might be.

Who was it that played "the suit" in ROTS? It would be kind of silly if that really was Hayden, but also kind of cool.

It was Hayden (dubbed by Jones). But he had to look through the mouthpiece because of his height lol.

Supposedly he only wore the suit in RotS because he whined about it until they got tired of his whining and just let him wear it. Character acting at its finest...*ahem*...

^ I'm not gonna lie, if I was Hayden... I'd want to wear the suit. I'd really want to wear the suit.

It just occurred to me that with Legends gone, and Lucas too, there is no stopping anyone from cloning Jedi. Even Anakin.

Hell, the first thing TCW did was remove the Legends excuse for not having this happen, so it's not like Lucasfilm can just reinstate the rule either.

GL had his reasons for making the clone army not Jedi, but he never made them explicit. With other people at the helm, and the fanservice and PR temptation of bringing Vader back or having a Jedi army now being present, I shudder to think what might happen.

As I have harped on about, Disney has already shown they are willing to overlook lore implications if they think they can make $$$, so this is worrisome thinking. I'm not convinced they would go "Why weren't the clones all Jedi Masters?" when they could be going "OMG! We get to have Darth Vader in our movies!!!"

Remind me - what was the EU excuse for not cloning Jedi?

Unique Force signature in each individual, which were retained by all the clones, leading to madness. Workarounds existed, and sheer luck would lead to some results being better than others, but for the most part, not a very good idea. Expensive too.

Then TCW episode 1 had Yoda tell his clones they were unique snowflakes in the Force, to console them about their identical faces.

Oh, yes. I remember that from the Thrawn Trilogy.

There can easily be a new in-universe reason for not cloning Jedi, but I guess the question is if the powers that be will want to make one. I would say that the fact that Kylo Ren appears to be a stand-in for Vader makes me think he won't come back as a clone, but then Savage Oppress seemed like a stand-in for Maul and we ended up getting Maul coming back anyway.

I don't like the idea of cloning Anakin, but at least one consolation is that it wouldn't actually be Anakin Skywalker brought back from the dead any more than Rex, Cody et al were a million Jangos. TCW has already set the precedent that clones can be quite different in personality from their template. It would be a new character.

Ren: "I will finish...what you started!"

*Whoops Finn, gets whopped by Rey*

Ren: "I will scrape some charred genetic material out of your helmet, then you can damn well finish...what you started!"
