Hayden Christensen is set to reprise his role as Anakin Skywalker in Disney+’s upcoming series ‘Ahsoka’.
According to Fox News, the new series is a spinoff of the insanely popular ‘Star Wars’ series ‘The Mandalorian’ on the streaming service.
Rosario Dawson stars as Ahsoka Tano, a Jedi Knight survivor who made her television debut in the second season of ‘The Mandalorian’. Filming on the upcoming show will begin in early 2022.
Dave Filoni is co-writing and producing the series with Jon Favreau. As ‘Ahsoka’ takes place five years after the events of 1983’s ‘Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi,’ in which Darth Vader (Anakin Skywalker) dies, it is currently unknown how Christensen will be incorporated into the series.
Due to the fact that Ahsoka was once Anakin’s Padawan apprentice, it is possible that he will reappear as a Force ghost.
Christensen made his film debut as a young Anakin Skywalker/infamous villain Darth Vader in 2002’s ‘Star Wars: Attack of the Clones’ and again in 2005’s ‘Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith,’ where he donned the iconic Darth Vader helmet for the first time. Christensen later stepped away from acting for a five-year period.
The Canadian actor previously announced his return to the role in December for the upcoming series ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi,’ in which he will reunite with costar Ewan McGregor as the titular Jedi Master.
The series, which will premiere next year, is set ten years after the events of ‘Revenge of the Sith,’ and follows Obi-Wan as he continues to keep an eye on Anakin’s long-lost son Luke Skywalker on Tatooine.
The show began production in April and will debut exclusively on Disney+. Deborah Chow, who directed ‘Mandalorian,’ will direct the limited series.
