'Darth Vader’ in “Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi"

Actor Hayden Christensen, who played 'Anakin Skywalker'/'Darth Vader' in the "Star Wars" prequel features, including "Revenge of the Sith" (2005) will reprise the role for a new "Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi" live action TV series, co-starring Ewan McGregor, directed by Deborah Chow ("Star Wars: The Mandalorian"), streaming on Disney+ in 2022: 

 " the rematch of the century, the series begins 10 years after the dramatic events of 'Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith' where 'Obi-Wan Kenobie' faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend and 'Jedi' apprentice, 'Anakin Skywalker' turned evil 'Sith Lord Darth Vader'. 

"While Anakin didn't die physically on 'Mustafar', his humanity was expunged as he thought killing Obi-Wan would help him in his quest to unlock the powers of the 'Dark Side'..."  

"It was such an incredible journey playing 'Anakin Skywalker'," said Christensen. "Of course, Anakin and 'Obi-Wan weren’t on the greatest of terms when we last saw them. It will be interesting to see what an amazing director like Deborah  has in store for us all. I'm excited to work with Ewan again. It feels good to be back."
