Anakin Skywalker Looms Large In New ‘Ahsoka’ Teaser Ahead Of Next Week’s Premiere

The upcoming Ahsoka series on Disney+ has tons of fans excited for the live-action reunion of the Star Wars Rebels crew. But let’s not forget one more character who will be making their return, Anakin Skywalker, played once again by Hayden Christensen. Ahsoka’s former Jedi master looms large in the upcoming series, as seen in the latest teaser before next week’s premiere.

The footage is a lot of stuff that we’ve seen before, but it has a fresh impact with Anakin’s voiceover, providing his former padewan some sage advice. We also get some lightsaber battles, and the late Ray Stevenson’s Baylan Skoll hyping up Anakin’s legendary status on both sides of the Force.

I feel like Anakin is due for a solo miniseries at some point.

This show looks awesome and I can’t wait. Ahsoka hits Disney+ on August 23rd.
