Leaked concept art recently surfaced for the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series, revealing the first look at Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader.

Hayden Christensen’s last appearance in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of The Sith was something of a bittersweet moment for his fans, who had watched him become Darth Vader but knew there was probably not much chance of him returning to the franchise.

However, after more than 15 years of waiting, fans will see Christensen back in the role in Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi and a new report has added new details around why it was important for Christensen to play the villain in the series.

New concept art shared by Star Wars News Net depicts Vader in an injured state, recuperating in a bacta tank, similar to how Luke recovered on Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back.

Vader is shown with his mask removed, which would be a big reason to bring Christensen back into the Star Wars fold. Also shared were rendered versions of the tank and also a breathing device from the art, which would suggest that the idea is one that has been fully produced for the upcoming series.

Speaking in an interview at the start of the production Christensen told StarWars.com:

“It was such an incredible journey playing Anakin Skywalker. Of course, Anakin and Obi-Wan weren’t on the greatest of terms when we last saw them… It will be interesting to see what an amazing director like Deborah Chow has in store for us all. I’m excited to work with Ewan again. It feels good to be back.”

The Obi-Wan Kenobi series is just one of the many Star Wars movies and series currently in production and heading to screens in the not too distant future.

The Book of Boba Fett and a third season of The Mandalorian are pretty much complete, while two new Mandalorian spin-offs – Ahsoka and Rangers of the New Republic – are in the early stages of production.
