‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Photo Reveals Return of Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader

A new photo of Hayden Christensen’s return as Darth Vader for Obi-Wan Kenobi has been revealed.

The boys are back! After debuting the first look at Ewan McGregor’s return as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the series of the same name, Disney Plus and Entertainment Weekly have released the first look at Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader! The first look at the character in years shows the terrifying Sith lord emerging from his meditation room.

The series takes place between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and A new hope while Obi-Wan Kenobi watches over Luke Skywalker on Tatooine. Yesterday’s trailer teased the Jedi master who went off the world to fight a new threat from the Galactic Empire. How does Darth Vader play a role in this new chapter in the… Star Wars story? There are currently few details about Hayden Christensen’s return, but the star teased to the outlet that the public will see a unique look at the world’s most famous villain.

“We’re going to see a very powerful Vader.”

As for how much he’ll be in the Disney Plus limited series, writer Joby Harold teased that Hayden Christensen’s return as Darth Vader will be of great value.

“His shadow is being cast over so much of what we do. And the degree of its closeness to that shadow is something we will discover. But he’s emotionally very much a part of the show for Obi-Wan, and possibly beyond.”

Lucasfilm describes the Star Wars story as a special event series for Disney Plus, and there aren’t many details about the upcoming one Star Wars series at the moment. However, we know that ten years later the series will feature a rematch between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader Revenge of the Sith and for their final confrontation in A new hope
