Hayden Christensen Returning as Anakin Skywalker for Kenobi

It seems the future is incredibly bright for Star Wars fans.

During the Disney Investor Day, the house of mouse revealed a huge slate of new Star Wars content heading our way in the near future, but one of the most exciting pieces of news to come out of the event, was new information about a show we already knew was coming.

Anakin Skywalker himself is set to return to the Star Wars universe as it was revealed that Hayden Christensen will reprise the role in the upcoming Kenobi series.

Christensen, who last played the role in 2005’s Revenge of the Sith, teased a return to the franchise last year when he recorded a voice cameo for Rise of Skywalker.

The show, set 10 years after the devastating events of Revenge of the Sith, will follow Obi Wan Kenobi as he resides in hiding in Tattooine.

As Anakin has been transformed into Vader at this point, it will be interesting as to how they incorporate Christensen into the show. I, for one, can’t wait to find out!
