Will there be a force ghost in EP VII?

I would not mind seeing Ewan Mc darning the old Obiwan makeup to be a force ghost. Yoda could pop up nicely as well.

I think there will be. Just a gut feeling. I have a feeling that they will try for a bit of nostalgia so if something happened in the OT, it will happen in the ST.

I think it's more than nostalgia, but force-ghosts will play a larger role in the ST, just from where TCW was going. I get the feeling that for Lucas, working on TCW may have been the catalyst for the ST treatments, and that certain new themes introduced in TCW will be dominant ones in the ST. Adding to that, I've always been under the impression that Lucas was dissatisfied with the lack of Qui-Gon force ghosts in II and III. Season 6 of TCW wrapped that arc up well...and it certainly left it wide open for the telling of a greater story to come.

I agree with the gist of that LT. I'm a bit more cynical in some ways. I get the feeling from those involved that they are trying like hell to channel the OT even possibly at the expense of the PT.

Clone Wars though will be a good template and I think Rebels will showcase a bit more. In fact I'd be surprised if some plot points of the ST AREN'T introduced in Rebels. I DO get the feeling that they are trying to create a full connected universe between all their fiction....kind of like the Phattiverse was ;)

I don't know though - is a force ghost necessary? Considering Ep 7 takes place 30 years after ROTJ, would Luke need anymore guidance? The three ghosts appearing at the end of ROTJ was kind of like their sendoff, you know, "You don't need us anymore, we're proud of you" kind of thing.

Now, if a ghost visited Leia... hold it, I'm going there... why not have Anakin appear to her?

The Phattiverse was an epic Fanon version of the GFFA++. It was fun to work on B-)

Why wait 30 years to do that? :p

I think if anybody needed a ghost for guidance, it would be Leia. She could already be in the midst of talking to Anakin. You know, it wouldn't be a first time type thing. But if they HAVE to have a ghost, I would love to see Ewan McGregor return as Obi Wan.

But again, why wait 30 years to have that conversation since that will be the time period between Episode VI and Episode VII. Wouldn't it make more sense for that conversation to happen well Episode VII happens?

I know one thing, I wanna see Leia being a bombad Jedi in the ST!
