Ewan McGregor’s funny reaction to his “Obi-Wan Kenobi” action figure

On Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday, Ewan McGregor revealed his new Obi-Wan Kenobi figure for the upcoming Disney+ series. It’s been 17 years since McGregor was last seen as the Jedi Master, in 2005’s Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. According to the recently released trailer, the new series will at least partly focus on the Empire’s hunt for those who still practice the Force. McGregor praised the new series, not so much the figure. “I was sent on my – I only really saw this about an hour ago – my doll,” McGregor said, holding her for the camera, adding, “I don’t know if it’s just me, like, they scan you. You know, they have these machines that, for example, read your body and every data point of your being is recorded. And then again, it doesn’t quite look like me. McGregor thinks that the character looks more like a young Richard Chamberlain, who started his acting career over 60 years ago, more than himself.” I look like Richard Chamberlain in my first episode of Episode I . I was dead like Richard Chamberlain,” McGregor said. “I was like, maybe they had an old scan of him that they just used for me.”
