For those who don’t peruse the IMDB forums, you mightn’t be aware that actor Ewan McGregor actually reprised the role of (the younger) Obi-Wan Kenobi in the recent “Star Wars : The Force Awakens”. For a short moment in the film, the “Phantom Menace” actor (as well as Frank Oz, the voice of Yoda) was required to lend his lungs to an audio bite that meshed a line of his with one of original Kenobi actor, Sir Alec Guinness. It was all rather clever how was it was done.
McGregor explained how it all came about in an interview this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Rumours currently abound that Disney is talking to McGregor about headlining a new series of films about Obi-Wan Kenobi so no surprise they’d get him into the fold now.
