Following on from yesterday’s first look as Ewan McGregor’s return as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Entertainment Weekly have now released the first image of Darth Vader in the upcoming ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Disney+ limited series.
The image shows Vader, played by Hayden Christensen, emerging from his meditation chamber.
It was so important to have Hayden be a part of this project because he is such a massive part of that character. It was a priority to all of us that we did it with as much care as possible, so as to honor one of the greatest villains and antagonists in the history of entertainment.Joby Harold, series writer
When he first came on set for us, it definitely had a very special feeling. The first time I saw him in costume, he was towering over me. He was literally almost twice my size! It’s really intense to have such an iconic character, and then to be directing him and doing new scenes with him…. I do remember poor Ewan on that day being like, ‘What am I, chopped liver?Deborah Chow, series director
Deborah came up and we spent the day chatting. She told me a little bit about the project and her vision for it, and I just thought that it sounded wonderful. I was very excited to come back. The whole experience was very surreal. The first time that I saw Ewan as Obi-Wan again, that was a very special moment for me, and one that I’ll remember for a very, very long time.Hayden Christensen
‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ starts on 25th May.
