The entire Star Wars fandom is celebrating the triumphant return of Hayden Christensen via the standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi series and if the latest reports are to be believed, it looks like Lucasfilm will be making the most out of the actor's new deal.

Rumor has it that the Anakin Skywalker actor will be making an appearance in the Ahsoka series starring Rosario Dawson, potentially in flashback scenes or even a Ghost Force appearance given the fact that the project takes place a few years after Return of the Jedi aka the MandoVerse era.

Of course, Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker share quite the history together and it would be a huge missed opportunity on Lucasfilm's part not to explore their mentor-padawan relationship in live-action. It would also mark the on-screen reunion of Christensen and Dawson.

However, it looks like the 41-year-old actor doesn't know anything about his alleged involvement in the show. When asked by Capital FM regarding his Ahsoka appearance, Hayden downright dismissed the rumors linking him to the project. He said: "I don't know, I can't really speak to the Ahsoka series. I don't know about that one."

Hayden's remarks sound awfully familiar and it's quite obvious that he's trying to pull an Andrew Garfield by playing coy about his involvement in the show. Of course, an Anakin appearance in Ahsoka has yet to be confirmed but the idea doesn't sound too farfetched either.

The first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi will premiere tomorrow, May 27th exclusively on Disney+. Meanwhile, the Ahsoka series is expected to drop in 2023.
