It’s just been announced at the Disney Investor Call that Hayden Christensen is returning as Darth Vader is the Obi-Wan Kenobi series! This is huge news and I cannot believe my eyes and ears!
This was revealed by Kathleen Kennedy this evening and it was really unexpected as far as I’m concerned. I never believed that Hayden Christensen will ever return to the Star Wars franchise after starring in the prequel series.
This upcoming Obi-WQan Kenobi series will be set 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and it sounds like Kenobi and Darth Vader might come close to bumping into one another.

This is truly insane news and there’s so much stuff coming out of this Disney Investor Call that I just can’t keep up with it. However, I really do love the fact that Christensen is going to get to play Darth Vader, finally.
It’s something that fans have been crying out for for quite some time now. Give Hayden a second chance. I’m pretty sure he’ll do a good job.
This Kenobi series will also star Ewan McGregor returning as Kenobi and hopefully, he’ll get to show off his true acting skills in the role, which was something he wasn’t really able to do in the prequel movies.
