This new live-action Star Wars series, for Disney Plus, will center on its Padawan from the animated spin-offs, Clone Wars.
The great return of Hayden christensen in the franchise Star wars is confirmed. Already announced to the cast of the series Obi-wan kenobi, recently toured for Disney +, in which he will put himself in the skin of the very young Darth Vader, opposite Ewan McGregor, the 40-year-old Canadian actor will also be present in Star Wars: Ahsoka, according to THR. This other live action series for the big ears platform will be dedicated to the character of Ahsoka Tano, the Jedi played by Rosario Dawson (in The Mandalorian), but which is especially known to fans thanks to the animated saga Clone Wars. For almost a decade, she was indeed the Padawan of Anakin Skywalker, in adventures between Episodes II and III.
Little Princess Leia reportedly cast for Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi series
So which version ofHayden christensen will we see here? Anakin or Vader? Hard to say, since the Ashoka series will be set during the time of The Mandalorian, including post-Episode VI, after the fall of the Empire and therefore years after the death of Darth Vader! The most logical thing would be to imagine Anakin Skywalker’s return in flashbacks or through the Force, which he has done in the past. In any case, more than 15 years after the end of the Prelogy, Christensen is making a resounding combe back in the universe of Star wars !
This is Dave Filoni, creator of Clone Wars, who will be at the helm of Ahsoka, with Jon Favreau as executive producer. Production is expected to start early next year.
