Åsikterna om prequel-trilogin är minst sagt splittrade men de flesta av oss brukar kunna enas om att McGregors insats i rollen som Obi-Wan tillhörde filmernas absoluta höjdpunkter. I en nyproducerad intervju för Variety avslöjade han lite mer om sina tankar och känslor kring att återigen befinna sig tillbaka i George Lucas filmuniversum.
"It pulled me back into the Star Wars world, The Mandalorian series, in a way I didn't expect. It blew me away how much I loved it."
"The first thing that I noticed when I started meeting with Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni was that they were finding a way to totally realize their love of Star Wars, all of our love for Star Wars. And so, creatively to step into something, it just felt so safe. It was so clear to me that they knew what they were doing, starting with their heart being in the right place — and doing it with a lot of love."
"I just came directly from our set on the Kenobi series, and I'm working with so many of your crew from The Mandalorian. In fact, Deborah Chow is directing all of our series, and I know she directed episodes of your first season. I'm having such an amazing time down there with that incredible technology, and not being in front of too much green screen and blue screen."
"literally 90% of the scenes were just on green sets with green floors and green walls, or a blue set with blue sides and blue walls" When talking about the change in technology, he added, "I like it. It's like the beginning of Hollywood. It's almost like when they had three-sided sets all in a row, and a bunch of guys with windup cameras, and you would just go from one stage to the other, one background to the other. Well, we're doing sort of the same thing, except just the background changes instead of the stage. I'm excited about it because I feel like anything's possible now. That you can invent stuff, interiors or exteriors that don't exist in the real world, and put us into that environment. And also, you don't have to fly ever. I mean, traveling has been great for the first 30 years of my career, but now I just want to stay at home. I just want to drive to work and drive home from work. I want a proper job."
