Ewan McGregor practiced long sword dueling for Obi-Wan Kenobi for months

In an interview, he also hinted that the young Luke Skywalker may also appear in the six-part live-action series Obi-Wan Kenobi, expected in 2022.

Ewan McGregor had to interrupt his lightsaber training, so badly affected by the second dose of vaccination against Covid, the Scottish actor’s conversation with The Hollywood Reporter reveals.

“These monumental two and a half hour sword and hand training sessions have been going on for months”

Ewan McGregor, who bears a bearded statement and is once again hiding in Obobi-Wan Kenobi’s skin, who also spoke about it, was badly affected by the not explicitly positive reception of the antecedent trilogy. In the article, he himself admitted that they had a hard time retaliating against the Sith, as they had to say “not just Shakespeare dialogues” for months, almost exclusively against a blue and green background. “You can’t really immerse yourself in a dialogue if it’s essentially not surrounded by any environment. It was very difficult, ”admitted the actor, who recently celebrated his 50th birthday

However, he also said the closer he got to shaping Obi-Want again, the more he wanted to play again. Plus, there will be no more problems with blue and green backgrounds here, as StageCraft technology, which is also used at Mandalor, will be used.

“They project the background onto the huge LED walls. So if you’re in the desert, you’re standing in the middle of a desert. If you are in snow, it is surrounded by snow. And if you’re sitting in the cockpit of an astronaut, space is all around you. It will have such a real impact ”

Said Ewan McGregor, who also revealed that filming hasn’t started yet, but he already had test shots with director Deborah Chow, whom he considers a great professional. Asked if young Luke Skywalker had appeared on these test shots, McGregor’s mouth turned to his characteristic smile, then he said,

“It’s very possible. I do not know.”

To the best of our knowledge, Obi-Wan Kenobi could arrive on Disney+ by 2022. The six-part series recently became an official cast, with the roster discussed in Huttcast Live’s 9th broadcast.
