Hayden Christensen was spotted visiting Disneyland’s Star Wars theme park Galaxy’s Edge.
The Star Wars prequels centered on the downfall of the Republic and Anakin Skywalker’s tragic descent towards the Dark Side, with Hayden Christensen portraying the future Darth Vader. Since the prequels concluded, Hayden Christensen has not returned to the Star Wars franchise and has kept relatively silent on his experience with the saga.
However, Hayden Christensen recently revisited the Star Wars universe by attending Disneyland’s Galaxy Edge theme park with his daughter. In photos shared by the official Disneyland Resort Twitter account, Hayden Christensen can be seen checking out the Millenium Falcon and handing a lightsaber to his daughter.

Of course, Hayden Christensen’s recent appearance at the Star Wars park will likely fuel rumors that he has a role in The Rise of Skywalker. The upcoming Star Wars film is set to conclude the decades-long Skywalker story and many believe an appearance by Hayden Christensen’s Anakin Skywalker would be fitting considering the events of the saga have largely stemmed from the Jedi-turned-Sith’s actions.
Here is the official synopsis for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker:
