Love for Star Wars
“For me, now that I started doing the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, which is similar in technology that they used, the Mandalorian series took me back into the world of Star Wars and in a way that it didn’t. I expected it. I had my own experience with it in the 1990s, but I was amazed at how much I liked it, ”revealed Ewan McGregor.
The Mandalorian was created by Jon Favreau and produced by Dave Filoni. The series became one of the favorite shows of the vast majority of Star Wars fans and revived the furor for it. If Obi-Wan Kenobi follows the same steps as Pedro Pascal’s fiction, Ewan McGregor could have the possibility of generating the same thing that he felt in other viewers.
