If everything goes according to plan, the shooting of the new streaming series Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi will start in March 2021. Then not only the actor Ewan McGregor in the role of the eponymous Jedi master will be in front of the camera, but also his colleague Hayden Christensen. He is supposed to celebrate his return as Darth Vader alias Anakin Skywalker. Disney and Lucasfilm announced this recently.

Christensen had already embodied this character in Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith. How big his appearance in the new series will be is not yet known. However, since the story is supposed to be about eight to ten years after Episode 3, the renewed encounter between the two characters should be very interesting – should it actually come to that. It is quite possible that Darth Vader will be seen in one or the other episode, but he will not meet his old teacher Kenobi directly. Christensen is looking forward to his comeback:

"It's been such an amazing journey to play Anakin Skywalker. Of course, Anakin and Obi-Wan weren't that green when we last saw them … It'll be interesting to see what such a great director as Deborah is Chow has to offer all of us. I look forward to working with Ewan again. It feels good to be back. "

There is no specific start date for the series Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, a premiere on the Disney + streaming service should not be expected before 2022.
