Disney and Lucasfilm have yet to reveal the story for the live-action series. The Hollywood Reporter says, though, that it’s set five years after the events in Return of the Jedi, similar to The Mandalorian. That Vader will be featured in a show about Ahsoka doesn’t entirely come as a surprise, seeing she was Anakin Skywalker’s padawan. But since Vader died in Return of the Jedi, it’s unclear how his character will fit into Ahsoka’s story, and whether he’ll be shown in flashbacks or as a Force ghost.
Dave Filoni, who was involved in several previous Star Wars projects, will write the story and also serve as executive producer with Jon Favreau. The series will start production in 2022, though fans will get the chance to see Christensen play Vader before that in Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi that’s set to debut early next year.
