Ewan McGregor: “[Obi-Wan’s] carrying a lot of grief. He’s carrying a lot of pain. He’s tormented by this guilt about losing Anakin and not being able to stop that from happening.”
Read the full @BritishGQ interview:
I love that Hayden Christensen says he plays "Anakin Skywalker" in Obi-Wan Kenobi.
He's still used to saying it from the prequels, but it also shows that Darth Vader remains conflicted over his past and identity in the series.
FUN FACT: Obi-Wan Kenobi is set 9 years before A New Hope. Ewan McGregor is 12 years younger than Alec Guinness was when he played Obi-Wan in A New Hope.
So the timing works out perfectly for McGregor to play Obi-Wan in the upcoming series.
Disney+ releases synopsis for Obi-Wan Kenobi:
