The Hollywood Reporter has just revealed that Hayden Christensen will play Anakin Skywalker again in Star Wars; Ahsoka. This upcoming series is set 5 years after Return of the Jedi, so Anakin will certainly appear as a ghost or in flashbacks. Production is set to begin in early 2022.
The relationship between Anakin and his Padawan Ahsoka was at the center of the animated series The Clone Wars, which was supervised by George Lucas. It will be the first time that the two characters interact in live-action.
As a reminder, Christensen will also star as Darth Vader in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. It’s great to see him make a big comeback in the licence. And it’s well-deserved, as he perfectly embodied the most iconic Star Wars character in Episodes II and III.
