In addition to Disney+’s upcoming “Obi Wan-Kenobi” series, “Star Wars” alum Hayden Christensen will reprise Anakin Skywalker (aka Darth Vader) for the “Ahsoka” spin-off series.
The Hollywood Reporter had the scoop but “is unclear how Skywalker, or for that matter, Vader, will figure into Ahsoka, which, like Mandalorian, is set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi, and therefore after Vader’s death.”
The trade suggests Christensen’s Skywalker could likely appear in flashback sequences or as a ‘Force Ghost’.
Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano, a Jedi Knight survivor who was trained by Skywalker, made her live-action debut in the second season of “The Mandalorian”.
Dave Filoni is writing “Ashsoka” with Jon Favreau serving as executive producer.
