This is Where The Fun Begins: Hayden Christensen Joins the Disney+ Ahsoka Tano Series


Hayden Christensen is about to get another chance at playing Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars galaxy. The star of the latter two prequel movies has officially signed on to co-star alongside Rosario Dawson in the upcoming live action Ahsoka Tano series on Disney+. The Hollywood Reporter says that multiple sources from Disney and Lucasfilm have confirmed the casting news. Of course, Christensen starred as the character in both Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. While he hasn't been super active the past few years, this will provide him another shot at the role under the writing of Dave Filoni and production of Jon Favreau. 

The actor will also be reprising his part as Darth Vader in the upcoming Obi-Wan series, also on the Disney+ streaming outlet. In the next couple years, there are numerous new televised Star Wars projects that will be hitting the outlet. The Obi-Wan series will take place before the events of Episode IV and will follow him as he deals with the fall of the Jedi Order. 

No word has been announced about the time period of the Ahsoka show but we imagine we may be getting some more back story if he's coming back to play Anakin. Obviously, we'll report on this again as we hear more.
