Is Hayden Christensen’s Anakin Skywalker Returning For More Episodes?

Seeing Hayden Christiansen return to “Star Wars” via “Obi-Wan Kenobi” was a huge deal, especially for those who had grown to love the prequel films years after fans and critics tore them to shreds. Naturally, when word got out that Dave Filoni and the folks at Lucasfilm were working on an “Ahsoka” series, fans were hopeful that Christiansen was also involved in that project so they could see Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker appear in live-action together for the first time. Even though Christiansen’s involvement seemed like a no-brainer, the actor tried to hide his inclusion as best he could.

For example, while promoting “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” he and the actor behind the titular Jedi, Ewan McGregor, sat down for a chat with The Movie Dweeb. During the interview, Christiansen was asked how working on “Obi-Wan Kenobi” compared to working on “Ahsoka,” but the actor — hopeful to avoid spoiling the surprise — refused to budge. “I can’t really speak to the Ahsoka series. I don’t know about that one,” he said with a smile after shrugging his shoulders at the mere idea of him appearing on the show. However, try as he might to keep the secret, news broke of his “Ahsoka” inclusion months before, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter.

New episodes of “Ahsoka” drop every Tuesday exclusively on Disney+.
