Is Anakin Skywalker in Ahsoka?

Last year, Star Wars prequel star Hayden Christensen returned to the role of Anakin in Obi-Wan Kenobi, and it was previously reported that he would be showing up in Ahsoka. While the character has yet to show up in the series, fans can expect to see (or hear) him eventually. In fact, a recent teaser featured new words spoken by Anakain, which got fans extremely hyped for the show's future. 

"In this war, you face more than just droids. As your Master. It's my responsibility to prepare you. I won't always be there to look out for you. Don't be afraid. Trust your instincts. I know you can do this, Ahsoka," Anakin is heard saying in the trailer.
