First look at Darth Vader in ”Obi-Wan Kenobi” Disney+ Series

The first look of Darth Vader has been revealed for Disney+’s upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

Entertainment Weekly has shared the first image of Darth Vader rising in his meditation chamber in the upcoming Star Wars adventure. The actor Hayden Christensen is returning to his former role as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in the Disney+ series. It’s been almost 17 years since we last saw him as Anakin Skywalker in the 2005 Revenge of the Sith movie.

So far, Hayden is being cryptic about what fans can expect to see with Darth Vader in the Kenobi series. “I wish I could tell you,” Christensen tells Entertainment Weekly. “I’m sworn to secrecy.”

As for the kind of Sith Lord we’ll see in the series that helps fill in the gap of time between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Hayden promises viewers will see a “very powerful Vader” in the series.

The new series takes place ten years after the events of Revenge of the Sith, so a lot has changed in the galaxy.

The trailer offers hints about the state of the galaxy during Obi-Wan Kenobi’s exile. It shows how the Inquisitors are in full swing, hunting anyone who they suspect is a Jedi or Jedi sympathizer. People are scared of the Empire, and the Imperials are using that fear to control everything. Obi-Wan will be torn between his duty to protect Luke and his responsibilities as a Jedi Master.

The Grand Inquisitor, member of the Jedi hunters first glimpsed in Star Wars Rebels, is set to make his live-action debut played by Rupert Friend, with Sung Kang debuting the role of Fifth Brother from the series. 

Other confirmed cast members include Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse as Owen and Beru Lars, with Jackson, Moses Ingram, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, Benny Safdie, and Maya Erskine in undisclosed roles. There are rumors that Qui-Gon Jinn (played by Liam Neeson in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace) will appear, but time will tell what happens in the series.
