As we know the Star Wars galaxy is expanding constantly, and more and more in Disney+ series’. Since the release of the incredibly successful The Mandalorian, we have seen and heard of many new shows on their way. The Book of Boba Fett, Andor, Ahsoka, and Obi Wan are all coming soon. Most will see familiar faces from the films returning to reprise their roles. Most notably, the return of the Dark Lord of the Sith himself, Darth Vader.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Hayden Christensen will not only be reprising his role as Vader in the upcoming Obi Wan series, but it turns out he will be showing up in the Ahsoka show as well! Ahsoka is a set after the events seen in The Mandalorian, which is set 5 years after Return of the Jedi. This raises many questions about Hayden’s involvement in the project. As we have seen Anakin’s death in Return of the Jedi.
The possibility is that perhaps Ahsoka is still on a journey, continuing to learn the way of the Jedi. Which could mean she could be seeing Anakin as a force ghost. Or perhaps we are set for some flashbacks. Either way it is exciting to see Hayden return to the role. With the journey he has had, from the original hate of the prequels, to the grown love and acceptance, it is awesome to see him back in the fold so much.
While Disney has kept quiet on the news, Rosario had seemed to confirm the news herself on twitter, with a quickly deleted tweet, all though as we know, nothing ever leaves the internet. What do you think about Christensen returning for more outings as Anakin Skywalker? Answer the call in the comments below.
