Hayden Christiansen is returning to the live-action Star Wars universe alongside Ewan McGreggor in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+,
according to the major announcement at Disney’s Investor Day last week. This will be the first appearance by Christiansen since playing Anakin in Revenge of the Sith (2005), and his likeness as a Force Ghost being controversially edited into the final scene of the Return of the Jedi special edition by George Lucas.
Erik Voss welcomes Screencrush’s Ryan Arey, Kimberly Truong, and Kristin Sanchez as they discuss what form Hayden Anakin will take in the series — behind the Darth Vader mask, flashbacks to the Clone Wars, a Force Ghost, or some other psychic battle. What other battle could Obi-Wan and Anakin had between their duel on Mustafar in Revenge of the Sith and their final duel on the Death Star in Star Wars A New Hope?
