    In addition to releasing three new exclusive images from the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus series, Games Radar has also released some snippets from the interview they had with the cast and crew. This will all be a part of Total Film's May issue, which comes out on Thursday, April 28.



    As he pointed out, Ewan McGregor had never had a confrontation against Darth Vader, despite playing Obi-Wan Kenobi in three different movies. Or, in a more strict sense, he's never shared a scene with Darth Vader in costume. And he wasn't ready for it, as he told Total Film:

    He then added that while filming this scene, he was genuinely scared. He didn't even have to act:



    But he wasn't the only person on set scared to feel that way, as series director Deborah Chow recalled:

    Speaking of villains, Chow also told the magazine that Darth Maul, another classic antagonist of Obi-Wan, was never going to appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi, despite some reports saying the contrary:



    Of course, she's referring to the Star Wars: Rebels season 3 arc, which had Darth Maul going against and being defeated in combat by Obi-Wan himself. In the series, it's said that the two haven't seen each other in a long time, and that Maul has been looking for the Jedi-in-hiding for many years. It wouldn't have made much sense in canon to have the two going against each other just a few years before the events of Rebels.

    Chow also added that even though the project had started as a movie and that she brought some ideas from said project into her show, Maul was never in the conversation. She also discussed how Vader was added to the story:

    Going back to Vader now, Hayden Christensen himself also had something to say about his character's journey. He discussed how in the prequels he was hired to play Anakin and his journey into the Dark Side. But he never really got to play Darth Vader, at least not until the very end of Revenge of the Sith. Until now... He said:



    He then teased that the character's arc is not done yet, and there is a lot more to explore:



    He could be teasing, of course, his appearance in the upcoming Ahsoka series, which was reported in October 2021, but he could also be hinting at a second season of Obi-Wan Kenobi, something that Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy would not rule out last month.



    Obi-Wan Kenobi will come out on Disney Plus on May 27th. The new issue of Total Film will hit shelves this Thursday, April 28th.
