While it’s true that we’re patiently waiting for the new Obi-Wan Kenobi live-action series on Disney Plus, we still don’t know what the plot will incorporate. Though according to the latest hearsay, it will feature flashbacks to the days of the Clone Wars.
After a period of uncertainty and ambiguity, both within Lucasfilm and among fans, the new series, starring Ewan McGregor as the main lead, is continuing production at a reasonable speed. That is, as much as the current restrictions due to the COVID-19 allow. But over the past two weeks, we’ve heard a lot of exciting rumors, most of which seem to indicate that Hayden Christensen will be back as Anakin Skywalker in some capacity, even if it’s through flashbacks.
Now, according to a new report from Kessel Run Transmissions, a YouTube channel dedicated to covering the latest developments in the world of the galaxy far, far away, fans of Dave Filoni’s The Clone Wars will be glad to know that Obi-Wan Kenobi will indeed include flashbacks and they will have the Jedi Master reliving his time as a General of the Grand Army of the Republic in the fight against the Separatists.
“Last year when the Kenobi series was officially announced my source told me two things. One, that Ahsoka was going to be cast in The Mandalorian, and that Clone Wars flashbacks were going to be featured in Kenobi,” They said in their latest video.

The outlet was the first to report on several big Star Wars-related scoops recently. So, odds are, they may be right about this one, too. Interestingly, this could also explain how Christensen will appear as Anakin.
I mean, what could be more exciting than McGregor and Christensen reuniting in their respective roles and fighting alongside each other once again, as they did in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith? To know for sure, though, we’ll have to wait and see what Lucasfilm has in store for us in the upcoming months as they kickstart Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s marketing machine.
