The also executive producer assured that McGregor contributed many ideas in front of and behind the scenes and that his presence made the series go down a different path: one that combined the retro with a more modern idea of ​​​​the character.

“I think we were quite lucky to have Ewan, and it was not the first time that he played Obi-Wan, so he knew him perfectly, he loved him so much and also, he came to contribute much more to this Jedi. I believe that the production would have taken another path if he had said that he did not want to return to this adventure ”.

Hayden Christensen returned to the role of Anakin Skywalker, better known as Darth Vader, after almost two decades of not being related to the film franchise. Deborah also spoke with TechMarkup about this epic comeback:

“When we were developing the story, one of the main reasons for including Vader was that we wanted to show Obi-Wan’s life in detail after what happened in Revenge of the Sithand without a doubt, everything connected to Anakin: He was of great importance to this Jedi and in a way, he was still a great weight on his shoulders. So we couldn’t deny his presence in this series and it was necessary to create this emotional journey that separated them and brought them together, and that ultimately continued to present this love-hate relationship.”
