Already announced to the cast of the series “Obi-Wan Kenobi”, Hayden Christensen – the interpreter of Jedi Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars prelogy – will also be in the cast of the spin-off dedicated to “Ahsoka Tano”.
We know a little more about the Ahsoka Tano series! The new original Disney + production, dedicated to the former Jedi signet ring heroine of the animated series The Clone Wars, will indeed see Hayden Christensen appear in the role of Anakin Skywalker. Remember that the Canadian actor had already been announced to the casting of the spin-off Obi-Wan Kenobi, expected for next year on the SVOD platform.
Heroine of the animated series The clone wars, Ahsoka Tano is the padawan formed by Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars. Opposed to the Jedi Council after being wrongly accused of murder, the latter had decided to abandon her ranks, a decision that had allowed her to escape the purge of Order 66. Ahsoka had also appeared in the guise of Rosario Dawson in The Mandalorian series.
The arrival of Anakin Skywalker thus confirms the presence of flashbacks in the plot of the series Ahsoka. Remember also that the last meeting between the two characters took place during the finale of the second season of the animated series Star Wars: Rebels. Particularly striking, this sequence had notably allowed Ahsoka to learn that his former master has become the Sith Lord Darth Vader!
Star Wars series Ahsoka Tano and Obi-wan kenobi will soon be available exclusively on Disney +.
