    haha ya indeed!!

    In all honest, I real hope he show same acting like Shatter Glass. He act good in general but no room in Prequel and bad input from Lucas. I think he can do well here but I know no how they do voice? Will Jame Pearls James do voice again?

    I definitely think they’re gonna need the vocal talents of Jame Pearls James if they plan on utilizing Vader in this show

    I hope he continues the trend from Rogue One of Darth Vader being the kind of passive aggressive contempt, at least when he's not displaying active aggressive contempt instead. *ahem*

    So James Earl Jones is attached to this as Vader's voice right?!

    I didn't like his character from the prequels. He was better written in the Clone Wars. Maybe he will be better since George isn't writing his dialogue. I just hope he still isn't emo, I am getting a bad feeling he will be Kylo Ren level emo. Just moping over Padme. He is overtaken by the dark side he should act accordingly. There is a fine line hope they don't go too far. It would be a shame for Hayden to come back to more bad material.

    Maybe it's best to wait until footage of him comes around before we start throwing around preemptive criticism?

    check the thread "hopes, fears, wants, and expectations."
    That is all that was expressed.

    What was the last part from the animated hallway scene with Vader vs Rebels?

    Some great Hayden/Vader tidbits in this article: Inside the 17-year journey to bring 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' to the screen

    Unpopular opinion,

    But I always liked Hayden's Anakin. At least as a casting choice. It worked for me.

    I'm glad that he's coming back.

    :dvs:

    The rematch is going to be GLORIOUS. My money's on Vader taking off the mask during the fight which will be brutal for Obi-Wan.

    Considering that they revealed him fully in the Bacta Tank, I definitely agree we might see him unmasked at some other point.

    I thought he had to keep the mask on to live. Unless you mean in some other way we see him maskless like a dream or memory.

    The Dark Side uses the Force to sustain and strengthen itself in this realm, while the Light Side uses the Force to move on to the next. Not that it’s exactly about life and death and strength, more like about sailing with the wind versus powering headlong against it. Vader can use the Dark Side to deny his own imminent death without the machines, but Anakin chose differently at the end.

    Do you guys think it will top the ROTS Obi Wan vs Anakin duel? That one got a little dragged out, but the actual lightsaber choreography was insane. Or do you think they go for a more sequel type duel where it's more brutal strikes.

    ah, gotcha.

    I didn't like how they roamed all over place. If they stay in one spot it could be interesting. But really this Kenobi is not a Jedi, so the fight will be pathetic.

    McGregor called it "The Rematch of The Century" so no, it won't be pathetic. He's still 100% a Jedi, just one that has to reawaken his powers. He is now facing a VERY powerful and seasoned Sith in Vader so it has the potential to be a better fight than the ROTS fight.

    Also, Obi-Wan is conflicted here. In ROTS he wanted to kill Anakin. Here he'll try to convince him to walk away from the Empire and flee with him. So he's not trying to kill him but rather survive him.

    To really shock sense into Anakin, Obi-Wan could lead him to Padme’s tomb on Naboo for the confrontation. And then it would all go wrong with Vader trashing the place.

    A newly-filmed flashback scene starring Natalie would complete the set of Amidala-Skywalker family appearances in this series. Not an entirely unrealistic hope, I think, given the other actors and characters we’ve seen.

    He can fight without the mask but must always keep the mouth piece on. It'll look frightening either way. Basically Obi-Wan vs a Cenobite wielding a lightsaber.
