At long last, Hayden Christensen’s return to Star Wars is nearly here. Next month, fans will finally get to see the return of Anakin Skywalker himself as the Canadian actor reprises his role from the latter two prequels in Obi-Wan Kenobi, streaming exclusively on Disney+. Alongside Christensen is Ewan McGregor in the title role, who is also returning to Star Wars for the first time in 17 years.
Christensen will appear as Darth Vader in Obi-Wan Kenobi, and fan theories suggest that he will also play Anakin in flashback sequences, perhaps even from the time of the Clone Wars.
As Obi-Wan Kenobi gets closer, now is a great time to watch a throwback interview from the press tour of Revenge of the Sith in 2005. Hayden Christensen and George Lucas interview each other, complete with questions from Star Wars fans, and talk extensively about the franchise.
Check out the interview here:
Obi-Wan Kenobi releases on May 27.
