For those unfamiliar with him, Gillard created all of the action performances from films released between 1999 and 2005, which gave them a much more dynamic tone than the original trilogy.
In an interview with the portal, Gillard commented on his work in the franchise:
“We hadn’t seen any young Jedi Knights in the 1980s other than Luke (Mark Hamill)… Obi-Wan (Alec Guinness) was not in his prime. So, George [Lucas] invited me over and said, “Can you create a style that suits young audiences?” And that’s what I did, I loved working with Ewan [McGregor] and Ray Park (Darth Maul) because they were very athletic back then. It’s good to have courageous and creative colleagues who help you shape it all. “
Remembering that McGregor will return as a Jedi Knight in ‘Kenobi’, the upcoming Disney + series.
In an interview with Empire, the star revealed that he was more excited to star on the show than he was when he took part in the prequel trilogy.
“I’m more excited about ‘Kenobi’ than when we recorded ‘Attack of the Clones’ and ‘Revenge of the Sith’. Movies weren’t very well accepted by fans at the time… But I’m curious to work with [a diretora] Debora Chow. I think this story will be amazing and I am delighted to play such a dear character again.
Recalling that Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirmed to The Wrap that the project will be a miniseries, with a predetermined beginning, middle and end:
“It was very exciting to see the talents involved here. And now we’re developing the Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries with Deborah Chow and she’s done a phenomenal job ”.
The speech also reinforces recent information revealed by the Making Star Wars portal, which indicates that recordings will begin in September. Additionally, the portal noted that work will begin with outdoor stages in Southern California.
Directed by Deborah Chow, “Kenobi” will have six one-hour episodes.
As of yet, there is still no official first preview.
