Originally launched between 1999 and 2005, the so-called “prequel trilogy” of Star Wars brought Hayden Christensen as an interpreter for Anakin Skywalker in his rise to evil, becoming Darth Vader.
The star participated in the films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, at the time heavily criticized for his performance to the point of leaving Hollywood for more than a decade, and may be about to return to the biggest role of his career.
Rumors recently released by We Got This Cover comment that Christensen may make a small appearance in Kenobi, a series that will be released soon by Disney + and takes place between the episodes Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, from Star Wars.
The information was given by the same source who shared that Ewan McGregor, also from the prequel trilogy, would return to the role for production. However, it is not yet known how Anakin will appear in the series, but the main theory suggests that it is through a memory of Obi Wan.
Christensen was also recently involved in a small part in The Rise of Skywalker, and although only his voice was present in the film, it already shows the star’s interest in re-engaging with the Star Wars franchise.
There is still no premiere date for the series, which has Deborah Chow in the direction.
