‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Preview Shows Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen in Lightsaber Rematch

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader will face off once again in the Disney Plus series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” — at least, that is the strong implication in a sneak peak of the Lucasfilm production released on the streamer on Nov. 12.

While the preview did not include any footage from the series, concept art appears to show Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) and Vader (Hayden Christensen) locked in a lightsaber battle.

McGregor further underlined the confrontation in an interview in the preview: “To have another swing at each other might be quite satisfying,” he said.

The moment resolves a lingering question in the “Star Wars” canon: After Obi-Wan’s tragic battle with Anakin Skywalker in “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith,” which forced Anakin to wear his iconic black armor and helmet as Darth Vader, did the former brothers-in-arms see each other again before their final battle in “Star Wars: A New Hope,” set 19 years later?
