The sequel to Revenge of the Sith will be told in a Disney + miniseries. Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi has already finished filming, so little by little different information related to fiction is arriving. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the actor Kumail Nanjiani (Eternals) has shared his experience in the filming, while also remembering his relationship with Ewan McGregor, the interpreter who gives life, once again, to Jedi Master Kenobi.
Sensations at the scene
“I had heard that Ewan [McGregor] he was very nice. And then we got to know each other a bit, ”recalls the actor. “There was a weird moment where I was chatting with Ewan and they yelled ‘action’ so he started talking to me and it was like: ‘Oh I’m talking to Obi-Wan right now, this isn’t Ewan McGregor’”. According to him, his character is a bit hostile towards him, but … “You know, it’s fucking Obi-Wan, what are you going to do?” He wonders.
Nanjiani assures in the interview that you feel like you are in the galaxy, very, very far away. In the first scene they shot, there were aliens walking and ships flying, “but the rest just looked like a warehouse.” And Ewan told him that none of this was real”. Despite everything, thanks to technology, Lucasfilm managed to capture the realism of the scene. “I love shooting like that, because you don’t have to pretend you’re on a ship flying in space, it feels like that.” And he adds: “It is incredible to be in the world of Star Wars, the world that I have been seeing since I was born. I’ve been a fan since I have memories. In fact, I just went to Disneyland and the world of Star Wars. I said to myself, ‘This looks like being at work.’
Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi to premiere at Disney + in 2022, although they have not yet announced a specific date for it.
