Evan McGregor says it was hard to film the previews of ‘Star Wars’

  • “Obi-Wan Kenobi” star Ewan McGregor had to adapt to the new movie technology in “Attack of the Clones”.
  • Macrigor found it “difficult” because he was not accustomed to green screens and digital cameras.
  • During a roundtable interview, McGregor said it was “difficult” to make the scenes realistic.

“Obi-Van Kenobi” Star Evan McGregor said it was “very difficult” to film the “Star Wars” pioneer trilogy because of the visual effects that director George Lucas pioneered.

McGregor returns as the named character in the upcoming Disney + series. However, he first played the OP-van In the prefaces of the late 90s and early 2000s, Lucas used enhanced visual effects to portray the space system and aliens in movies.

However, during a roundtable interview attended by McGregor Insider, he said that the new technology meant that he spent “a lot of time alone” as aliens were later added.

“It was very difficult to make the original three films because George was a pioneer at his visual effects company ILM and he was at the forefront of that technology,” the 51-year-old actor said. “When he was pushed into that place, he wanted to use it as much as possible, which means he wanted to create more and more backgrounds.”

He continued: “So for us, the more we were on the green screen or the blue screen, the harder it was to do.”

McGregor said it was very difficult in the second film “Attack of the Clones” because his character spends most of the film. Chased by a hunter, he is separated from the aliens in human form.

“[In] Episode II, I spent a lot of time with my own and the tallest aliens on this planet, of course, none of that, “McGregor said.” For me, it’s like walking in the blue for a long time. Talking set with tennis balls and sticks and I was not used to it, it was hard to make. We made it a reality and hope we did the best we could.

During the press conference For “Obi-Wan Kenobi”, McGregor also acknowledged that “Attack of the Clones” was his “first experience” on the digital camera. He also said that he had to re-record every line of the film because of the humming noise coming from the big tent near the stage.

“It was so loud and in the post-production period, they finally realized that the noise they were making was exactly at the frequency of the human voice,” McGregor recalled. “So we had to ADR every line of ‘Episode II’. The cameras are very new and there are no bugs yet so there is no original dialogue.”

Earlier this month, McGregor said Vanity Fair for its June cover story It was “hard” to finish after watching early movies Review of the first movie “The Phantom Menace”.

During a press conference for “Obi-Wan Kenobi”, McGregor said After hearing that fans loved the movies, the feelings about the previews were “hot”.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi” premieres on May 27 on Disney +.
