20 years after making his Star Wars saga debut as the young Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, Hayden Christensen is returning to the galaxy far, far away to reprise his role of Skywalker and Sith Lord Darth Vader for the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

Every Star Wars fan will be holding back tears this Friday after seeing fan-favorites Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, and even Temuera Morrison (Captain Cody) return to the Kenobi series.

It’s been a long run for these Prequel Trilogy heroes to make their official return, especially without the unfair amount of negative reviews towards Hayden Christensen’s portrayal as Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005).

In a recent interview while promoting the Kenobi series, Christensen reveals that he doesn’t know anything about the upcoming Ahsoka series:

Christensen states:

I can’t really speak to the ‘Ashoka’ series. I don’t know about that one.

Every Star Wars fan is coming around to love Hayden Christensen and wants more of the beloved actor. Given that his Star Wars time was cut short by critics, it’s safe to say that Christensen in another Star Wars show would be a big hit:

A+ for effort for our boy

Dave Filoni’s highly anticipated new Star Wars story featuring Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) couldn’t come faster. Anakin Skywalker will significantly impact the limited series as Ahsoka deals with dark flashbacks to her time with the Jedi Order and Jedi Master (not really) Anakin Skywalker.

The story begins ten years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his most significant defeat—the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
