    Will probably be like [SPOILER]the cave on Dagobah in Empire Strikes Back or the Jedi temple in the Rebels episode "Path of the Jedi". Obi-Wan is confronted by an apparitions or illusions of Anakin/Darth Vader (without his armor. Otherwise, why bother having Hayden back, if he's just in the suit (and dubbed by James Earl Jones)?) and has to deal with him.[/SPOILER]

    This sounds like it will be decent. Looking forward to seeing Hayden back.

    Itís also been confirmed that itíll be a limited series. Which makes sense but, I assume that because this takes place 10yrs after the Revenge of the Sith and before A New Hope, Obi-Wanís story (along with Darth Vaderís story) will no doubt be retconned as a part of the narrative that will be told.
