Darth Vader vs. Darth Vader
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen) are pitted against each other once more in Star Wars.
The “rematch of the century” will take place ten years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, according to a first look at the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, which will premiere on Disney(plus) in 2022.

Years before the Jedi Master and his Padawan meet again aboard the Death Star in Episode IV — A New Hope, Obi-Wan and Darth Vader will face off in the “rematch of the century,” according to Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
“We couldn’t tell Obi-Wan’s story without addressing Anakin or Vader,” said Deborah Chow, who directed two episodes of The Mandalorian.
Chow confirmed that viewers will “definitely see Obi-Wan and Darth Vader get into it again,” more than 15 years after McGregor and Christensen’s climactic clash in Sith.
“Having another swing at each other might be quite satisfying for everyone,” McGregor said, referring to his live-action return to the Star Wars prequel trilogy for the first time since 2005.
The exiled Jedi Obi-Wan has “this one task left”: to protect Luke Skywalker, Anakin and Padme’s young son (Natalie Portman), who is hidden on the planet Tatooine.
The story picks up 10 years after the events of ‘Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith,’ in which Kenobi faced his greatest defeat: Anakin Skywalker, his best friend and Jedi apprentice, who became the evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
The film stars Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Kumail Nanjiani, Sung Kang, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Moses Ingram, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, Simone Kessell, Benny Safdie, Bonnie Piesse, and Joel…
