Ewan McGregor excited to share scenes with Stormtroopers

Production in the Obi Wan Kenobi The series for Disney + is already underway, and even for those who have been involved with the franchise for some time, being able to see settings and characters from that galaxy far, far away is still exciting. After playing Obi-Wan Kenobi in The Phantom Menace, Attack of the clones, Y Revenge of the Sith, Ewan McGregor will reprise his role for the Disney + series, but unlike the green screen sets that dominated the prequels (especially the later entries), the new series makes use of The mandalorianState-of-the-art Stagecraft technology.

While speaking with Pedro Pascal for Variety Actors About Actors characteristic, Ewan McGregor expressed his admiration for the new technology.

I come straight from our set on the “Kenobi” series, and I am working with many members of their “The Mandalorian” team. In fact, Deborah Chow is directing all of our series and I know she directed episodes of your first season. I’m having such a great time down there with that amazing technology, and without being in front of too much green screen and blue screen … I made the first three movies in the late 90s and 2000s, and for the Once You Did the Episode 2 and 3, literally 90% of the scenes were on a green stage with green floors and green walls, or a blue stage with blue sides and blue walls.

Ewan McGregor has experienced more than most when it comes to the Star Wars franchise, but even he’s not immune to the dizzying pleasure of performing alongside Stormtroopers or Jawas. “I have to be very careful“McGregor said, wary of mistakenly revealing any spoilers.”There is no secret to when this series is set, but I had to pass two Stormtroopers. I realized that I had never acted with a Stormtrooper because mine were clones, you know? It was the clone army. So I had never seen a Stormtrooper. So he was passing them in this scene. I turned around and was 6 years old again.“McGregor continued:”I’m so close to one and it freaked me out, you know? Crazy. Then I asked someone, ‘Were there Stormtroopers in my movies? Because I don’t think I’ve ever seen a real Stormtrooper before. They said “No, they weren’t Stormtroopers; they were clones. “And Jawas, I had another scene with a little Jawa.“Although McGregor shared scenes with Clonetroopers in the Prequel Trilogy, they were created by CG, so seeing a real Stormtrooper in person, so to speak, is a completely different matter.

Obi Wan Kenobi takes place a decade after the events of Revenge of the Sith and in addition to Ewan McGregor, it also stars Moses Ingram (The Queen’s Gambit), Joel Edgerton (Erased boy), Bonnie Piesse (The vote), Kumail Nanjiani (Eternal), Indira Varma (game of Thrones), Friend Rupert (Homeland), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight from Compton), Sung Kang (F9), Simone Kessell (Estimate) and Benny Safdie (Uncut gems). The series will also feature the return of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader.
