After All These Years, Anakin Skywalker Actor Hayden Christensen Still Not A Fan Of Sand

It was one of the most hated moments from the prequel trilogy, which is saying something, because the prequel trilogy featured a lot of Jar Jar Binks:

During the livestream of Star Wars Celebration Orlando, Hayden Christensen was asked how he feels about sand, to the roar of the crowd.

"Well, you know, it's not very smooth," Christensen answered. "It doesn't really stay in one place. So I'm not such a big fan of it myself. If it leads to the water, I can tolerate it. Anakin came from a desert planet though, so I can understand his contempt for it."

Christensen also said that his life is still very "Star Wars centric," due to new fans discovering Star Wars all the time, and that he's enjoyed being at the Celebration and connecting with fans. That connection with fans, it seems, is more powerful than his hatred of sand, however, as Anakin was willing to sign a jar of it for one appreciative fan, according to this photo from our on-the-scene reporter Jeremy Konrad:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
