Ewan McGregor couldn’t believe that Fans like the prequel trilogy than the original Star Wars. Ewan is playing his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars, the upcoming Disney+ series. McGregor is very excited to work in the series, and knowing that series can’t go down because of lots of fans.
He said to Empire, “You know, our films weren’t much liked when they came out, by my generation who loved the first ones.”
“I think people of our generation wanted to feel the way they’d felt when they saw those first three movies when they were kids, and George [Lucas] wanted to take our ones in a different direction, he had a different idea.”
He added, “It was tricky at the time, I remember. But now, all these years later, I’m really aware of what our films meant to the generation they were made for, the children of that time.”
“They really like them. I’ve met people who, they mean a lot to them, those films, more so than the original three, and I’m like, ‘Are you kidding?”
He also said, “I’m more excited about doing this one than I was doing the second and third one that we did before.
He continued, “I’m just excited about working with Deborah Chow, and the storylines are going to be really good, I think. I’m just excited to play him again. It’s been long enough since I played him before.”
