Sebastian Shaw, left, as the original portrayer of the spirit of Anakin Skywalker



Hayden Christensen, left, as the spirit of Anakin Skywalker in the new 2004 editional DVD release

Hayden Christensen appears in only the 2004 DVD release of Return of the Jedi, in which he replaces actor Sebastian Shaw in the final scene of the movie. This version is considered the canonical version by Lucasfilm. Some fans were upset by the change and criticized it for being disrespectful to Sebastian Shaw, even undermining the film's cinematic historical value. Further fan criticism includes the claim that Luke would not have recognized his father as a young man, creating a continuity issue rather than solving one. On the other hand, Lucas has justified the change, explaining that Anakin died psychologically when he was a young man, his physical image dying along with him. The point may also be made that the appearance of the ghosts depended in part on Luke's psychic awareness due to his use of the Force, meaning that he could recognize his father's spirit by other means than simple visual appearance.
