Darth Vader has returned to a galaxy far away. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy announced on Disney Investors Day that “Star Wars” prequel star Hayden Christensen will re-introduce the role of Darth Vader for the OB-Van Spinoff series.
The Obi-Wan series starring Evan McGregor (who played the beloved JD in the prequel films) will air on Disney Plus. According to Lucasfilm, tHe launched a new series “Revenge of the Sith” 10 years after the dramatic events. Additional artists joining the series include Genevieve O’Reilly (who will appear as “Star Wars” legacy character Mon Mothma), Stalin Scarsgard, Kyle S, Ler, Dennis Goff and Adria Arjona. Fans will recall that “Wrath of the Sith” saw Anakin transform the Skyver from Padwan to Sith Lord Darth Vader. It remains to be seen whether we will see Christensen without all the important Vader masks. However, the character’s evil character in the horror villain of the empire is thrilled by many “Star Wars” comics, and we get a glimpse of his power in “Rogue One” (not to mention his travels in the original films).
