12 Most Dramatic Reactions to Hayden Christensen’s Return as Darth Vader

Redditor u/tyler980908 shared, “Star Wars on Twitter announced, Hayden Christensen returns as Darth Vader, joining Ewan McGregor in OBI-WAN KENOBI. This article is a small glimpse into how Reddit feels about Hayden Christensen returning.

1. This and Ahsoka Series, I’m Buzzing!

Muzzie720 begged, “Please, I've been a good girl, and it's been a helluva year. Please let Ahsoka meet Force-Ghost Anakin (Hayden). It's all I want.” CopperMTNkid suggested, “What about a mini-series with Hayden and Rosario?”

One Reddit user dubbed the series “A Tale of Snips and a Sky Guy.” Kiloku reminds them, “Only works if he's some type of Force Ghost companion. A prequel series with Rosario wouldn't make sense, as Ahsoka was a teenager then.”

Seanyseanerson replied, “I hope a major plot point in the movie is Darth having a small amount of sand inside his suit and not being able to take it off to get it out without dying.” Obiwancoffee said, “So uncivilized!” And Master_Skywalker-66 replied, “It's treason then.”

5. Internet Says the Series Takes Place Ten Years After the Rise of Starwalker

One Redditor commented, “I wonder. Are we going to see pre-armor Vader scenes? Post-armor Vader with mutilated Hayden Anakin? Pre-Vader flashbacks? The potential is significant.”

Randybutterrubs asked, “We've really come full circle, haven't we?” Mormonator8 replied, “Disney finally realized what fans want, and it's glorious!”

One Redditor expressed, “I'm still utterly shocked that we're getting Ewan back. Crazy it took so long, but it feels like the right time, especially with Filoni sort of guiding this whole thing.”

10. Never a Better Time To Be a Star Wars Fan. I’m So Pumped!
