The manufacturing process Obi Wan Kenobi was just as magical as it was to watch.
In an exclusive featurette Obi Wan Kenobi Stars Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen– who reunited in the Disney+ series after appearing together in 2002 Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and 2005 Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith– discussed their experiences filming the show and reflected on where it all began.
“I remember my first shot in the movie,” Hayden said. “First time working with you. First time picking up the lightsaber. So many great memories, it’s hard to pick a favourite.”
Ewan – who made his 1999 debut as Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace– found the nostalgic experience similarly rewarding.
“I have such fond memories,” he said. “It felt so good to come back to that, didn’t it? It really did.”
Ewan looked back on the bond the two had formed before filming began Episode IIand said, “Before we started filming, we did so much combat training and rehearsals.”
