One of the things that Star Wars fans are looking forward to in Obi-Wan Kenobi is seeing Hayden Christensen returning to the franchise as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Hayden talks about what it was like suiting up as Darth Vader again and what it was like returning to the franchise.

Read what he had to say below:

Well, without getting into too much detail, it was amazing. It’s a great honor to get to put that suit on.

It was mostly a lot of excitement because I had spent enough time with this character and felt like I knew him, and coming back to it felt very natural in a lot of ways. And I was just really excited to get to come in and play Darth Vader at this point in the timeline because it did feel like a natural continuation of your journey with the character. And that was very meaningful for me.

The whole experience was very surreal. Just the nature of coming back after all this time. It’s such a unique opportunity — one that both Ewan and I were very grateful for.
