Whereas talking with Pedro Pascal for Variety’s Actors on Actors function, Ewan McGregor expressed his admiration for the brand new expertise.
I simply got here straight from our set on the “Kenobi” collection, and I’m working with so a lot of your crew from “The Mandalorian.” Actually, Deborah Chow is directing all of our collection, and I do know she directed episodes of your first season. I’m having such a tremendous time down there with that unimaginable expertise, and never being in entrance of an excessive amount of inexperienced display screen and blue display screen… I did the primary three movies within the late ’90s and into the 2000s, and by the point you probably did Episode 2 and three, actually 90% of the scenes had been simply on inexperienced units with inexperienced flooring and inexperienced partitions, or a blue set with blue sides and blue partitions.
Ewan McGregor has skilled greater than most in the case of the Star Wars franchise, however even he is not resistant to the giddy pleasure of performing alongside Stormtroopers or Jawas. “I’ve got to be so careful,” McGregor stated, cautious of mistakenly revealing any spoilers. “There’s no secret to when this series is being set, but I had to walk past two Stormtroopers. I realized I’ve never acted with a Stormtrooper because mine were clones, you know? It was the clone army. So I’d never seen a Stormtrooper. So I was walking past them in this scene. I turned around — and I was 6 years old again.” McGregor continued: “I’m so close to one and I got a fright, you know? So crazy. Then I asked someone, ‘Were there Stormtroopers in my films? Because I don’t think I’ve seen a Stormtrooper for real before.’ They were like “No, they weren’t Stormtroopers; they were clones.” And Jawas, I had another scene with a little Jawa.” Though McGregor did share scenes with Clonetroopers within the Prequel Trilogy, they had been created by CG, so attending to see an precise Stormtrooper within the flesh, so to talk, is a completely completely different matter.
