He is going to write a new chapter in the Skywalker Saga, which will be about the events before Star Wars: A New Hope. New Disney+ shows will feature the long-awaited fight between the Jedi Master and Anakin Skywalker, better known as Darth Vader. There is also expected to be a fight between two planets. The show is also expected to look into the pair’s unexplored history, which means that there could be flashbacks during the events of both The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.

Star Wars has already said that there will be flashbacks about the Clone Wars in the new movie, but it isn’t clear if Anakin will be in them. Obi-Wan and Anakin’s friendship is going to be the focus of the show before their rematch. This means that some of their scenes from The Clone Wars or even new scenes could be in the show. Here are some of Darth Vader’s thoughts on the animated shows that have been made for the Skywalker Saga.

Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen talked to Entertainment Weekly about how they were preparing for Obi-Wan Kenobi, which is the movie that they are in. The first thing McGregor said was that he had seen all nine Star Wars movies in the Skywalker Saga “from start to finish.” Ewan McGregor who plays Obi-Wan Kenobi, also said that this was the first time he had seen the prequels since they were first released. He said that it was “interesting.” Christensen said that he didn’t just watch the movies again. He also “got into the animated shows,” like Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels. Finally, the Darth Vader actor talked about his thoughts on the series. He said that “there was interesting stuff there” to learn about him in the animated shows.

“I watched them from start to finish. All nine movies. Just to get back in that world. It was interesting to watch our films because I hadn’t seen them since they came out, not at all. So it was cool to see and interesting to watch them and enjoy them without all of the noise that was around when they came out. I went back and rewatched all the films. And I also got into the animated shows, The Clone Wars and Rebels. It was interesting. They did a lot with these characters in those shows. And they did further explore the relationship. There was interesting stuff there to learn about. It was great fun getting to go back and re-immerse yourself in this world that just continues to grow and become more and more vast.”

His eagerly-anticipated return to a galaxy far, far away can be seen in his face. The actor’s love for the show is clear when he said that he had seen every movie or TV show that was connected to the series, even the animated ones. Because Christensen has done a lot of preparation work, he knows everything there is to know about Star Wars. This means that when he comes back to the Disney+ show Obi-Wan Kenobi, it will be a good thing for him.

As a result, Hayden, who plays Darth Vader, would be able to read the references and Easter eggs that appear in the show. Given that Christensen is also going to be back on Ahsoka, the actor’s deep dive into the animated shows could be a good thing because it gives him a chance to fully explore the complicated relationship between his character and Rosario Dawson’s Jedi character. In Obi-Wan Kenobi, Christensen talked about the Clone Wars and the Rebels; This could mean that some of the characters from those shows will show up. Rupert Friend said that there are wonderful cameos in the series.

The first two episodes of the Obi-Wan Kenobi show will release on May 27th.
