Hayden Christensen to Play Darth Vader in 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Series with Ewan McGregor!

Hayden Christensen will reprise his role as Darth Vader in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series that will be released on Disney+.

Ewan McGregor will be reprising the title role, which he played in The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of The Sith.

Hayden played Anakin Skywalker in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In the latter movie, he pledged himself to the Sith and Palpatine dubbed him Darth Vader. He battled Obi-Wan in a lightsaber duel near the end of the film and was left for dead, but Palpatine treated his mutilated body and covered him in the black suit we all recognize as the Darth Vader uniform.

Disney announced that the upcoming series “begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Revenge of the Sith.” The series is set to be helmed by Deborah Chow, who has worked on The Mandalorian.
