In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Anakin Skywalker voice actor Matt Lanter says that the Chosen One will return in an upcoming animated project.
“There’s some new Lucasfilm Animation going on. I’ve been a part of some things I can’t talk about yet. You’ll see Anakin again,” Lanter promises. “I never quite put Anakin down, whether I’m doing a video game or something new for Lucasfilm Animation.”
Maybe Lanter is talking about The Bad Batch, which is set just after the end of the Clone Wars. But it could also be Visions, A Droid Story or an unannounced project.
I’ve always liked Lanter’s interpretation of Anakin in The Clone Wars, so it’s good news.
But Hayden Christensen will always be the true Anakin for me. It’s Christensen that I want to see and hear more in the franchise. His return in Obi-Wan Kenobi is a nice step forward, but let’s hope it won’t stop there.
