『』Drama series「 」So, I played the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Prequel trilogy. Is back. In an interview ahead of the start of filming, Yuan frankly talked about the conflict at the time of the Prequel trilogy.
“(The Prequel trilogy) wasn’t very welcome, so it was difficult and painful, because it wasn’t generally liked.”.. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he admitted that he had a hard time as an actor at the shooting site.Of the directorHowever, this is because he tried to actively incorporate CG.
“George loved technology and wanted to introduce it into his work more and more. The desire to control the background grew stronger. (In” Revenge of the Sith “) It was really boring after three to four months. I have. “
Yuan states that almost all of the traditional sets and backgrounds have been replaced by synthetic blue screens.“I don’t want to be rude, but it’s not a Shakespeare play. Without the environment, I wouldn’t be able to get into the lines satisfactorily. It was really hard.”。
In “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” which depicts 10 years after “Episode 3 / Revenge of the Sith” (2005), Obi-Wan, played by Yuan, confronts his disciple Darth Vader / Anakin Skywalker. Instead of a blue screen, I used the huge LED screen introduced in “Mandalorian” (2019-), commonly known as “Stage Craft”. Yuan admired “that is amazing” before, but this time as well, “If it’s a desert scene, you can stand in the middle of the desert, if it’s a snowy landscape, you’ll be surrounded by snow. If you’re in the starfighter’s cockpit, the surroundings are space. I feel it. “
Due to these various circumstances, Yuan talks about “Obi-Wan Kenobi”.“It may be a lot more fun than last time. I’m 50 years old and I’m pretty calm.”I’m saying. In fact, the replay negotiations for the role of Obi-Wan have been held for seven years, but the episode that he did not reveal any secrets until the announcement is also famous among fans. “I saw on SNS that” Obi-Wan is good for Yuan, “but I can’t say anything, but it’s humiliating to think that someone else might play it. was”.
