Star Wars Cinematic Universe – Hayden Christensen Slated to Return as Anakin Skywalker in Ahsoka TV Series!!

This is big news for any Star Wars fans that are also fans of Hayden Christensen. It has been announced (by many legitimate websites including EW dot com) that Hayden Christensen will not only be reprising his role of Darth Vader in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, but he will be returning as Anakin Skywalker in the Ahsoka series as well!

While this does not really surprise me, it is amazing news! The fandom hasn’t always been so supportive of Hayden Christensen so it’s awesome to finally see things coming full-circle for him in the Star Wars universe.

Here is a snippet from the article for you to read:

Hayden Christensen is heading back to a galaxy far, far away — but a little earlier than expected.

The actor is set to reprise his Star Wars role as Anakin Skywalker in the upcoming Disney+ series Ahsoka, which will follow Anakin’s former apprentice Ahsoka Tano, played by Rosario Dawson. Christensen previously played Anakin in 2002’s Attack of the Clones and 2005’s Revenge of the Sith, the latter two entries of the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news Friday, and Dawson appeared to confirm it on Saturday in a now-deleted Instagram post, writing, “Skyguy, …They know!!! See you soon, Snips,” a reference to Anakin and Ahsoka’s nicknames for each other in the animated Clone Wars series.

The link to the article is here.

Star Wars Cinematic Universe – Obi-Wan Kenobi CONCEPT ART Possible SPOILER!

Hello, all my lovely readers! Today, we have something special to discuss: a second lot of possible spoilery concept art content regarding the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series. If you wish to remain completely spoiler-free, please STOP READING! Thank you 🙌🙏

POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD

So we can only assume that the staff at Discussing Film have seen the concept art in question or have some sort of press release article sent from Disney expanding upon the concept art somehow. I just did a quick google search to see if there were any other references to the Obi-Wan Kenobi show concept art but so far, no hits. That doesn’t mean the concept art isn’t out there – it just means it’s embargoed until further notice by Disney. I mean, let’s face it, the Obi-Wan Kenobi show will be one of the biggest shows Disney will ever release. They will make it as BIG and as loud and as PR-centric as they can for maximum effect.

Let’s talk about the two points made in that tweet – the first is Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader approaching a trio of younglings in the Jedi Temple. This has been debated online already, as you can imagine, with fans saying they think it could be Vader recruiting (not killing) for Sith Inquisitors. Why would they bother revisiting a scene that was already covered in Revenge of the Sith? Well, they wouldn’t. That would be totally redundant unless they show a different angle of Anakin when he was killing the younglings.

The second point relating to the concept art is Vader seated on a throne as he communicates with a hologram. I find this one really interesting because it’s new, we’ve never seen this happen before. And it begs the question, which throne is Vader sitting on and who is in the hologram? What do you think, dear readers? Could it be a throne Vader had built in his castle on Mustafar? That seems most likely. And the person in the hologram could be anyone, so that’s really open for debate.

What do you think of these possible spoilers? Let me know in the comments what you think, and we can chat about it 😁

Stay safe, keep creating, and I’ll catch you all in the comments or in my next post!

Star Wars Cinematic Universe – Obi-Wan Kenobi Show LEAKED Darth Vader Concept Art [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

Happy weekend (for anyone in the Southern Hemisphere, that is!) or Happy Friday if you’re not! So obviously, if you are staying SPOILER FREE for the upcoming OBI-WAN KENOBI TV SHOW on Disney Plus – DON’T READ ANY OF THIS as it could possibly contain spoiler information about the show.

POSSIBLE SPOILER IMAGES AHEAD

If you’re up to date on all things Star Wars, you might have already seen these concept art images reportedly leaked from the set of Obi-Wan Kenobi. As with all things that come with a “leaked” tag, take it as you will (a pinch of salt helps lol) 😅😂

VIA SWNN

The images are self-explanatory as I’d guess most star wars fans would know that Hayden Christensen, AKA Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker, would have ended up in a Bacta tank after the injuries he sustained during his lightsaber duel with Obi-Wan on Mustafar. So to see him in this way isn’t all that surprising to me. However, it does show an image of a mask nobody has seen before, which looks a lot different to the ones I’ve seen in artist renditions:

There is huge speculation now that Hayden Christensen could be seen a lot more with his armour off than anticipated early on when the news broke of Hayden reprising his role. But after seeing these images, I’m pretty sure that Disney wants to tell the best version of Vader’s story in the Obi-Wan show that they can. And to do that would definitely mean showing Vader out of the bacta tank and without his protective armour.

Whatever you believe, IT’S HAPPENING IT’S REALLY HAPPENING, and I am jumping for joy inside right now lol 😁 Join me in talking about the upcoming show in the comments as always! Let me know your thoughts and what you think of the images!

Star Wars Collector – Anakin Skywalker Kotobukiya ARTFX Figure Sideshow Collectibles

As promised, my partner helped me put together the ARTFX Kotobukiya figure from Sideshow Collectibles. It was so easy it took less than a few minutes.

This is how he looked before we put him together:

OH ANI in little pieces! Kinda how he ended up lol – Copyright Darkside Creative

As you can see, only a few pieces to assemble but that is just the type of thing I like lol not a lot of fussing about!

And a close-up of the face:

Anakin doesn’t like photos – he’s more of a “stay in the background” kinda guy 😛

And finally the full image:

“You underestimate my power!”

As you can tell by my absolutely amazing photography, Anakin is happy 😊😅 That’s a joke by the way, Anakin is not a happy person and my photography skills are terrible 😅

I’m very happy with my purchase and this figure marks a huge milestone for me in terms of collecting as I have never unpacked a single figure I’ve collected until now! One of the nicest things about this figure is that it is partially metallic (which is why it’s so heavy) on the inside with some sort of plastic resin on the outside. And because it’s partially metallic, it can be nicely positioned on the lovely black magnetic base that it came with!

It looks exactly like it does in all the pictures that I’ve seen which is the best part I think. I mean the last thing you want is to buy something only for it not to resemble anything you’ve seen in images online!

What did you all get up to this weekend? Let me know in the comments dear friends and I’ll catch you in my next post!

Okay HERE’S a funny Star Wars Merchandise thingy I Must Share 🤣😅😆

Hello, dearest Star Wars friends and readers! Yes, it has been a few days since my last update, but there is an excellent reason for that, which relates to one of my other blogs. I am finally getting my A into G and starting a “side hustle” – one that I know I can do and hopefully, will eventually grow enough for me to leave my day job 🙂 But I am taking little steps, including going back to my roots (reviewing books and media, which seems to be in my blood, lol) and seeing how things progress.

But enough of that stuff, onto the Star Wars funny thing I will tell you all. I did this at the risk of being ridiculed because, apparently, I like to be laughed at by my friends. 🤣😅😆

So I discussed this with one of my friends, who is honestly the BIGGEST Marvel fan I’ve ever met, and she also sometimes likes Star Wars. So we got to talking about fandoms and merchandise, and she was like, “you should check out that item on this website because it’s way cheaper than Amazon”. And then I realised it was almost 100 bucks cheaper to buy from Sideshow Collectibles than from Amazon (including tax and postage fees). I was like, “WHAT THE HECK!” that is a lot of money to take from people buying your stuff. I mean, 20 or 30 bucks is nothing really but 100 bucks more expensive? That is daylight robbery, lol.

So this is the item, and I really loved it SO MUCH when I saw it:

I mean, LOOK HOW GORGEOUS this is! It is made by the famous Kotobukiya team, who are renowned for their figures because they are always so beautifully detailed. You can see just how detailed this one is! And I, of course, fell in love with it and was like BUY lol before my friend told me about the price on Amazon.

So I eventually bought it from Sideshow Collectibles, and now I have it, but this is the thing – IT’S not a figure. LOL, it’s a figure set that you have to put together! Thank goodness it’s pre-painted because otherwise, I’d be in serious doo-doo and unable to do anything with it.

The lesson learned: Always read the fine print before you buy something 🤣😅😆

But I still have it, and my partner said he can put it together for me, so I am so excited lol because it’s amazinggggggg! And the price was reasonable as well. It will also be my first EVER Kotobukiya collectible, so I am super stoked!

What do you think? Any thoughts, my friends? Feel free to laugh and poke fun – I CAN TAKE IT 🤣😅😆 Nah, seriously, do you like this item?

Let me know if you’ve bought any merchandise lately, what you bought and what you think of my purchase in the comments, and I’ll catch you there!

Love you guys!
