Plot details for the show are currently under wraps. However, fans are confused about how the character will figure into 'Ahsoka', which, like 'Mandalorian', is set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi, and therefore after Vader's death.

Production is due to begin in early 2022.

Meanwhile, in late 2020, LucasFilm confirmed that Christensen would also be playing Anakin/Darth Vader in the upcoming 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' series for Disney+ alongside Ewan McGregor.
