In the upcoming Disney+ live-action series Ahsoka, Hayden Christensen will reprise his Anakin Skywalker role. Rosario Dawson, who previously played Ahsoka Tano in an episode of the popular television series The Mandalorian's second season, will reprise that role with him in the episode.
The beloved character first appeared in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and continues in Star Wars: Rebels. Ashley Eckstein provided her voice for the animated version of the character.
It was announced that Hayden Christensen would appear in the Ahsoka series in late 2021, far before his return as Darth Vader in Lucasfilm's Obi-Wan Kenobi series. In the 2000s, Christensen played Anakin in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, but fans were interested in how he would fit into Ahsoka's story.

In the pivotal moments of Ahsoka Chapter 4, Hayden Christensen reprised his renowned role as Anakin Skywalker. The actor was also given the last billing, shown in the credits by the word "and" in front of the actor's name.
Smaller roles in a play by a well-known or popular actor are often given last billing. And Hayden Christensen from the Prequel Trilogy appearing in the Star Wars Galaxy's World Between Worlds more than qualifies.
Anakin will be back
In the fourth episode of her self-titled series, Anakin Skywalker confronted Ahsoka Tano, his former Padawan, and Star Wars fans everywhere undoubtedly let out a collective scream. But Skywalker's role on the show is only getting started.
First things first: Anakin being in Ahsoka Chapter 4 is intended to serve as a preview for next week's show, luring viewers to see the following chapter. Based on the response from fans thus far, this tease more than succeeded in doing its job.
Anakin and Ahsoka
After the episode, Anakin and Ahsoka are in the World Between Worlds. The Vergence Scatter, known as the World Between Worlds in Star Wars fiction, is a mystical, metaphysical place. Additionally, there are time-traveling portals in that dimension. Tano has faced similar situations as Ezra Bridger, and Ahsoka did in the World Between Worlds during Season 4 of Star Wars Rebels.
