Hayden Christensen was previously confirmed to reprise his role as Anakin Skywalker aka Darth Vader in the series, although it’s unclear in what capacity. The show takes place years after events in Return Of The Jedi, where Vader met his demise.

Dawson first played Ahsoka Tano in the second season of The Mandalorian, where she made a guest appearance. The character originally debuted in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, where she was voiced by Ashley Eckstein.

Ahsoka is set to premiere on Disney+ in August 2023.

Elsewhere at Star Wars Celebration, it was announced that Daisy Ridley will be returning as Rey in one of three planned Star Wars films in development at Lucasfilm. Ridley will star in a film directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, who directed Ms. Marvel.
