Even though it was initially announced that Hayden Christensen would be making his return to the galaxy far, far away for “Star Wars: Ahsoka,” Lucasfilm has held back from announcing the actor as part of the cast of the upcoming Disney+ series, with even lead Rosario Dawson keeping it vague when asked about the “Star Wars” Prequel Trilogy star’s potential involvement.
The latest trailer revealed that, with less than two weeks to go until the series premiere, it’s now been made official with the latest trailer for “Ahsoka” featuring a voiceover from Christensen’s Anakin Skywalker.
“Ahsoka,” starring Rosario Dawson in the title role, is set after the fall of the Empire and follows the former Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy. The series also stars Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla, Ray Stevenson as Baylan Skoll, Ivanna Sakhno as Shin Hati, Diana Lee Inosanto as Morgan Elsbeth, David Tennant as Huyang, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Eman Esfandi appearing as Ezra Bridger.
“Ahsoka” is written by Dave Filoni, who is also an executive producer alongside Jon Favreau, Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson, and Carrie Beck. Karen Gilchrist is co-executive producer. The series’ directors include Filoni, Steph Green, Peter Ramsey, Jennifer Getzinger, Geeta Vasant Patel and Rick Famuyiwa.
