Ewan McGregor recently explained why he feels more excited about the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series than he was when he filmed the “Star Wars” prequels.

What’s going on:

McGregor told ACE Nation that he feels excited his upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series will use VFX technology, which is often used in “The Mandalorian.” It essentially projects imagery onto LED screens, which can be used in sets so actors feel like they’re in those real locations.

McGregor explained why he feels more excited for this upcoming series compared to the prequels:

I think I am going to enjoy it much more. (The prequels) were all blue screen and green screen and it was hard to imagine, but nowadays I think things have moved on so much, and I think a lot of what you see is gonna be what we see on the set. I don’t know if you’ve seen the behind-the-scenes of ‘The Mandalorian’ series, but they employ that incredible screen ... it’s pretty amazing. It makes you feel like you’re in the place, it’s going to feel realer for us, as actors. And I think we’ll be using some of that technology on our show.
