Everyone, not just ‘Star Wars’ fans, hopes that Hayden Christensen’s return will be permanent.

A few weeks later Obi Wan Kenobi and fans were complaining that Hayden Christensen’s much-hyped return as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader was turning out to be a dank squib. After four weeks, all we had seen of him was a distant hallucination and some blurry shots from inside a bacta tank. When he was in full Vader gear, James Earl Jones provided the voice (with a boost from ReSpeecher) and the full body shots were all stunt doubles.

Fortunately, it looks like they were saving it for the last two episodes. Last week we remembered a Attack of the clones-It was Anakin training with Obi-Wan on Coruscant, and the climactic battle of this episode shattered Vader’s helmet to reveal Anakin’s damaged interior. In a murderous scene that has instantly become a fan favorite, Vader tells Obi-Wan, “You didn’t kill Anakin Skywalker. I did.”

After Obi-Wan Kenobi, everyone is reevaluating their opinion of Christensen, whose career after Star Wars it never really took off in the wake of massive criticism of the prequels. A thread on r/StarWars says that they don’t want to see him disappear again, that he should be the go-to man for future Vader portrayals, and that it’s time he got some recognition.

The responses agree, calling Christensen a “phenomenal actor,” saying he did “an amazing job” and was “absolutely brilliant.”

Lucasfilm appears to have acknowledged this, as Christensen is confirmed to appear in the upcoming Ahsoka Disney Plus show. As this is set in the later years return of the jedi, Anakin will appear as a Force Ghost or in a flashback, though any form of reconciliation between the fallen Jedi Master and his former Padawan has the potential to be one of the most emotional moments in the story. Star Wars history.
