‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’: Hayden Christensen Returning As Darth Vader In Disney+ Series

“The most beautiful thing of all,” Ewan McGregor said today about the return of Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader in the upcoming Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi, part of Lucasfilm’s Star Wars franchise. McGregor made the comment in an Obi-Wan Kenobi featurette played during Disney Investor Day where Christensen’s casting was announced.

Christensen was a discovery by George Lucas, an unknown actor when he took on the role of grown-up Anakin Skywalker, the father of Luke and Leia who turns to the dark side of The Force and becomes Darth Vader. Christensen made his debut in Episode II: Attack of the Clones and then continued into Revenge of the Sith. We literally see Anakin’s demise and meltdown as he becomes Vader.
