There are still times when I have to pinch myself over the fact that Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen will be making their respective returns to the Star Wars franchise nearly 20 years after Revenge of the Sith was released and the timing couldn't have been any better. The two actors will reunite in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series which will take place a full decade following the jaw-dropping events of Episode III.
Aside from the aforementioned setting, very little is known about the series at this point but apparently, leaked concept art from the upcoming series has already been making the rounds online and it pretty much gives us an idea of what will go down in the project.
Twitter page Star Wars Stuff shared concept images featuring how Anakin Skywalker would look outside his Darth Vader suit. The design is quite a terrifying sight to behold as it features Anakin's scarred face, body, and two severed limbs. Also included in the leaked artwork is a large bacta tank and a breathing apparatus. Check it out below:

As it stands, we're not quite sure if this terrifying new look will be something that we'll see more than once over the course of the show but given the fact that it's actually Hayden who will be under the Vader mask, it's a little safe to assume that we'll see his scarred Anakin face on more than one occasion. Say what you will about the prequel trilogy but I'm seriously stoked about this show.
No official release date for Obi-Wan has been announced.
