No matter what you think of Hayden Christensen’s performance as Anakin Skywalker in the prequel movies, it’s clear that for many viewers he is the ultimate actor for Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker. So with the news of him coming back to Star Wars to reprise his role after decades made people jump with joy. After all, this will give Hayden a chance to show all the dissenters that he was always deserving of playing the role.
However, a lot of fans are not thinking about any of that after it was announced that Hayden Christensen is returning in the Disney+ Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi series. Many are simply rejoicing at the fact that they are getting to see Hayden Christensen reprise his role as the dark lord. Not to mention that everyone is ready to see Obi-Wan Kenobi and Vader interact again.
The excitement is truly boundless. So we have tried to capture this excitement in a series of tweets from different people.
Along with Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen, it was recently announced that Bonnie Piesse and Joel Edgerton will also be reprising their roles as Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen. But that’s not all, of course, joining them are Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Sung Kang, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Rupert Friend in the noteworthy role.
While we don’t know what characters a lot of these actors are playing, but the cast is just so talented that we can’t help but hype ourselves up over this project. Also with Hayden Christensen getting second billing just after McGregor, it’s obvious that we are going to be treated to a sweet sweet rematch. This rematch will be made extra spicy as well since Anakin will now be Darth Vader. Honestly, our expectations are through the roof for this show right now!
