Hayden Christensen’s Anakin Skywalker has appeared in two episodes so far, both in the present timeline as a vision to Ahsoka in the World Between Worlds and in a flashback to a moment during the Clone Wars. Skywalker makes his return again in Episode 7, appearing to Ahsoka in the form of holograms she saved from her time fighting in the Clone Wars. Ahsoka begins training aboard her ship for a rematch with Thrawn, and she uses the holgrams to help coach her given that was their initial purpose.

“When I got the phone call to talk about being a part of the Ahsoka project, I was thrilled,” Christensen previously said of his Star Wars return. “Putting on the Anakin costume, getting to wear those Jedi robes, it blows your mind every time. I just feel very grateful.”

“It was amazing to have Anakin and Ahsoka back together again,” Ahsoka lead Rosario Dawson added in the official featurette released by Lucasfilm. “I met Hayden when I was 16, and we were in acting school together over a summer. And to have that kind of history with him, it really was like seeing my old friend.”
