The New Side
Of Darth Vader
That Will Be
Revealed In
Obi-Wan Kenobi
In the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" miniseries, Hayden Christensen will reprise his role as Darth Vader, and he promises that fans will get to see a completely different side of the villain. In a recent interview, Christensen didn’t give any spoilers but teased that “[...] there's really sort of a struggle of identity with Vader. I think that's at the core of who he is.”
In another interview, Christensen explained the struggle the character faces between his identities as Anakin and Vader. He explained, “He's trying to bury Anakin as deep down inside as possible. He's trying to kill that side of himself." According to Christensen, he wants to achieve this goal by committing to his mission and hunting down the remaining Jedi left.
As Star Wars fans have seen the infamous villain at the beginning and end of his time as a Sith lord, the new series will show what happened in between those times. Fans can see how Vader tries to erase all reminders of his past as Anakin from the universe when the first two episodes drop on May 27th.
