Hayden Christen To Return As Anakin In ‘Ahsoka’ Series Opposite Rosario Dawson

After being away from it for more than two decades, Hayden Christensen is now fully back into the Star Wars universe. Not only will he return as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series alongside Ewan McGregor, but will now appear in the Ahsoka Tano series opposite Rosario Dawson.

THR confirms the news, and it was almost a given that Christensen HAD to be in this show. The relationship between Anakin and his former padawan Ahsoka was crucial to The Clone Wars series and one of the most interesting dynamics in all of Star Wars.

Considering Ahsoka takes place five years after Vader’s death, it’s likely he’ll appear mainly in flashback or possibly as a Force ghost? He and Ahsoka definitely have some business left unfinished, some things left unsaid.
