Hayden Christensen talks Darth Vader

"I am not your failure, Obi-Wan! You didn't kill Anakin Skywalker... I did." Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi concluded on Wednesday with a haunting finale filled with nostalgic Force feels on Disney+.

Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader) appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to discuss his original casting in the Star Wars prequel trilogy and return as Darth Vader in the special event series directed by Deborah Chow (The Mandalorian).

Overall, I thought Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi was the perfect, mythological, farewell to a fan-favourite character played brilliantly by Ewan McGregor. The spin-off series may have redeemed the prequels for some fans, as it was a genuine thrill to see Kenobi training Anakin Skywalker in flashback before Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. Their tragic tale reaches its zenith in an unforgettable duel between Kenobi and Darth Vader that nightmarishly meshed Christensen's and James Earl Jones' (purportedly via Respeecher) voices.

However, there's more to Darth Vader's story. And we'll see Christensen next in Star Wars: Ahsoka in 2023 on Disney+.
