A question for Star Wars fans

I was watching Return of The Jedi yesterday and noticed right at the end, when the "ghosts" of Yoda and Obi-Wan appear to Luke, there also appears to be an actor in this who looks incredibly like Hayden Christiansen as Anakin Skywalker. However he didn't appear to be listed in the credits, as Sebastian Shaw is listed as playing Anakin.

Did they add Hayden Christiansen or have i just dreamt this?

Yes, they added Hayden in place of Shaw's ghost at the end of Jedi in the remastered editions of the films. Some fans get incredibly worked up about this, but it really doesn't matter to me. But yeah, that's him.

Ah, thanks! I thought I was seeing things for a moment or amazingly Hayden Christiansen looked exactly like this actor.

I can well imagine some Star Wars fans getting a bit upset by this, though it kinda makes sense seeing as that is what Anakin looked like before he became Vader.

George Lucas is a moron who should have left the original movies alone. Hayden Christensen sucked as Anakin BTW. Bah humbug.

If it really bugs you, there's a fan edit by ADigitalMan that restores Shaw as Anakin's ghost, along with altering a few of Lucas' low points.
