Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi: start of shooting and special guest

Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi

After several postponements and other issues, the new streaming series Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi recently reached a major milestone in production. As the main actor Ewan McGregor revealed in an interview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live", the shooting started in the studios. On which specific day this was the case, the actor could not be elicited - but a few other interesting details.

Among other things, he explained that he would be on May 4, 2021 - the Star Wars holiday - filmed a "very special scene" with an unspecified colleague who has a "special place" in his life. McGregor didn't really respond to the talkmaster's inquiries. It was only possible to elicit that he had never stood in front of the camera with this mysterious person before. These vague formulations naturally leave a lot of leeway for speculation.

Who could it be? It appears to be a character who plays an important role in the Star Wars universe. What is your tip in this regard?

McGregor also confirmed that the makers of Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi used the same screen technology that was used in Star Wars: The Mandalorian. There the actors act in front of a huge screen on which the respective location and sometimes other characters can be seen. This saves the construction of particularly complex backdrops, but at the same time allows a certain degree of flexibility in the staging.
