We’re more in line with the prequels than we are with how the fights are in the original trilogy,” said the actor. “These characters have aged, but not that much yet.”

On returning as Anakin Skywalker, Christensen said “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.”

One of the things I loved so much about working on Star Wars projects is just that shared excitement. That everyone’s real excited to be there. You feel that energy, and that’s a really special thing.”

It sounds like Christensen was thrilled to be back as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. Hopefully the show will be able to give the fans what they want too.
