Obi-Wan Kenobi has proved to be a major success on Disney+, with the opening weekend (which only included TWO episodes) garnering enough views to make it the most-watched Disney+ original series premiere to date.
So, needless to say, the series is pretty popular right now. And accordingly, we’ve seen some new merchandise pop up like the Obi-Wan Kenobi Funko POP collection, an Obi-Wan Kenobi Legacy Lightsaber, and even…Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader-themed cars?! Yeah, the excitement surrounding the new Disney+ series is pretty real, and soon you won’t only be able to reunite with some of the iconic characters on the screen — a new character is coming BACK to Disneyland!
According to Disney, Darth Vader is officially returning to Tomorrowland in Disneyland Park for a limited time, starting June 11th, 2022!
“We meet again, at last.”

Now, guests used to be able to find Darth Vader in the park during the Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple but, when the Star Wars sequels were released, and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened, we noticed Darth Vader disappear from the park. So, this will mark the first time in many years that you can run into the Sith Lord once again.
Disney hasn’t announced exactly how long he’ll stick around though, so head to Disneyland sooner rather than later if you’re hoping to spot him!
And, don’t forget that there are TONS of other new Star Wars characters that you can find in Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland right now including Baby Yoda, Mando, Boba Fett, and Fennec Shand.
