Star Wars’ Ewan McGregor
Star Wars’ Ewan McGregor who played Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi in Episodes I, II & III appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night. Ewan McGregor is currently filming Star Wars’ Kenobi show for Disney+ but made time for an interview to promote his new Netflix show titled, Halston.
Kimmel immediately introduces McGregor with “a new Obi-Wan Ke-SHOW-bi coming to Disney+”. McGregor appears sitting in his Star Wars dressing room with Star Wars Episodes II & III posters hanging behind him. McGregor shared some thoughts on the upcoming Kenobi show without giving away secrets, not wanting to spoil it for the fans of course. Kimmel teases McGregor by prodding him to hold up a script and walk around set with the webcam he’s using for the interview.
The actor is asked about putting on the Obi-Wan costume back on after a 16-year hiatus. In Kimmel-like fashion, the host comments that McGregor’s costume must be out of fashion 10-years after Revenge of the Sith in the Star Wars timeline. Before fully moving the interview to his Netflix show, Kimmel asks McGregor about his epic motorcycle trips documented in his Long Way Down/Up/Round TV series. Long Way Down documents his trip from Scotland down to South Africa, including his time through Tunisia and stops at Star Wars film sites where he played the younger Obi-Wan Kenobi.
We can’t wait for Star Wars’ Ewan McGregor’s new show on Disney+. McGregor is a favorite of mine, not just as Obi-Wan but in his other roles as well. We really hoped that Disney, Lucasfilm, Ewan McGregor and other Star Wars cast and crew would return to film the new Star Wars shows back here in Tunisia. We understand that filming in studio with modern filmmaking technology solves so many problems but how awesome would it be for the actors and crew to return to where it all began, in the REAL Tataouine!
