Hello there! After decades away from the franchise, Ewan McGregor is set to don the Jedi robes once again in the new series Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney Plus. The show will see the character return to watch over and protect a young Luke Skywalker while simultaneously evading elite Jedi hunters sent by the Empire.

Adding to the excitement is the return of Hayden Christensen, who will portray Darth Vader in the series. That means we'll get to see McGregor and Christensen face off again for the first time since 2005's Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith!
