HAHA - Ewan trashes the prequels!
"[It] was hard they didn't get well received. That was quite difficult," McGregor said in an interview for The Hollywood Reporter's latest cover story. "They were universally not very much liked."
"Obi-Wan Kenobi, the series, will feel "so much more real," he promises, because of StageCraft, which The Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau utilized for his Star Wars series."
The prequels aren't good movies. We all know it and did for many years. Even people who liked them knew they weren't great.
But then something happened. Disney bought the franchise and the Lucas Loyalists were born. They retroactively tried to tell us the prequels were good - and continued to get louder and louder as Episodes 8 and 9 were released. But we all know. Everyone involved with those movies knows.
I'm glad he's returning and interested in this show, but glad he's being honest. All this Lucas Loyalist nonsense makes me want to puke. It's ok to not like something Star Wars. The fandom and conversations were better back then. We could talk prequels even though we didn't all like them. You try to have a conversation about the sequels and Lucas Loyalists come running in and try to ruing any attempt at conversation. You actually cannot talk about these movies because these dorks come flying in trying to sidetrack the convo.
Good for you, bro!
