    The time has finally come. After years of reporters and television hosts trying to squeeze in a Star Wars question whenever Ewan McGregor was trying to promote another project, we can finally enjoy a Star Wars-focused interview with the actor.

    The Obi-Wan Kenobi actor was a guest on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' for May the Fourth, and had a long chat about the upcoming series with guest host Mike Birbiglia. He was first asked about the overwhelming load of Star Wars material they have to study when making the show so that they don't contradict what happened in a novel or a video game. While Ewan isn't up to speed on everything canon related, series director Deborah Chow is, as he explained:


    Birbiglia also brought up the fact that Ewan McGregor's uncle, Denis Lawson, played Wedge Antilles in the original Star Wars trilogy. The actor recalled the excitement he had when he was a kid and went to see Star Wars in the theater, because that was the movie his uncle was in:

    He also went on about how his relationship with his uncle continues to inspire his work to this day:


    While he couldn't say much about the show, he did get the chance to make a breakdown of where we are at the beginning of the show, teasing also the event that will trigger him to go back to his Jedi ways:


    During the interview, Ewan also got the chance to promote the brand-new Black Series figure for Obi-Wan Kenobi. Inspired by his character in the upcoming show, the figure will be available for pre-order at Hasbro Pulse and most major retailers on May 11. Here's Hasbro's description of the figure:
