OBI-WAN KENOBI Stars Ewan McGregor And Hayden Christensen Defend "Phenomenal" REVENGE OF THE SITH

Obi-Wan Kenobi is fast approaching, and stars Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen have now spoken out in defence of 2005's Revenge of the Sith while discussing the challenges of making the prequels...

Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen are currently doing the rounds to promote the upcoming debut of Obi-Wan Kenobi, and both actors shared their love for Revenge of the Sith during an interview in Berlin. McGregor talked more about the 2005 movie than his co-star, acknowledging that while critics didn't like it, he's pleased to see how it's been embraced by those who were kids at the time.

"What we didn’t hear at the time was people your age, your generation. We meet those people now that really love our films, but it’s taken us fifteen years for us to hear that. But it’s so nice, it’s really nice. It changed my outlook, my relationship with Star Wars it’s different because of that."

"We put our heart and soul into them, and they were difficult to make," he continued. "There was so much green screen and blue screen, because George was pushing into this new realm that he had designed. He was responsible for ILM and he wanted to max out that technology, but that meant for us that we were very much on green screens and blue screens, and it was hard work.  And to do that, and be passionate about it, and for the films to be not well received, it was really tough."

After McGregor went on to say that he thinks Episode III "is a really good movie," Christensen chimed in and said, "It’s a phenomenal film. Non-stop action."

When one of the attendees made a joke about Kenobi having the high ground (a reference to that climactic moment in Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber battle), McGregor responded with a laugh, "If I had a dollar for every time someone has said 'I have the high ground' to me..."

Take a look at their comments in full below and stay tuned for more on Obi-Wan Kenobi before its May 27 premiere. We'll be at the global press conference next week, so should have lots to share!
