Star Wars: The Force Awakens featured many returns of actors to their iconic roles from previous Star Wars films. But there's one actor who's return you may not have noticed. Apparently Ewan McGregor recorded some new Obi-Wan Kenobi dialogue for the Force vision/flashback that Rey experienced in Maz Kanata's castle.
This information comes by way of James Arnold Taylor, who voiced Obi-Wan on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, who says that he originally recorded that dialogue but was then replaced by Ewan.
@maxreborules it was me originally but they replaced me with some guy named Ewan McSomething... 😜— James Arnold Taylor (@JATactor) December 19, 2015
@t_betts94 yes, it was me originally but they replaced my version with Ewan. I guess if I'm gonna be replaced it should be him! 😀— James Arnold Taylor (@JATactor) December 19, 2015
Did you catch the new Obi-Wan dialogue? And does this maybe open the door to more Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan stories (Anthology film or Force ghost in Episode VIII)? Let us know what you think in the comments!
