CelebHomes News It Star WarsYour fans know your identity already. For all those who are new to the scene, could you please introduce yourself. Please tell us more about your work. Obi-Wan Kenobi?

Doug Chiang:Lucasfilm’s Vice President and Executive director, I am also a producer and designer. Obi-Wan Kenobi. OnObi-Wan KenobiI had to design the environment, characters and all planets. The result was quite amazing. Obi-Wan KenobiThe prequels and the original trilogy are connected. This was an amazing opportunity to blend Tatooine’s aesthetics from the prequels back to the original trilogy. It was evident that it took about 20 years. We need to understand how the planet evolved and make it unique. Obi-Wan Kenobi?

CelebHomes: You can find such an option. Star Wars fan geek-out moment in the trailer when young Luke Skywalker looks so much like Anakin.

DC:Our biggest challenge was obviously how to depict a young Luke Skywalker. Was Uncle Owen with Aunt Beru at the homestead? This was very interesting, as Tatooine doesn’t change much. This is a very timeless setting. It was our challenge to create something that was familiar for the readers of the original trilogy but with a modern twist. I think Luke was a really fun example of that, where we tried to imbue a lot of that nostalgia into his character and into the design of ‘What would a young Luke be doing on the homestead?’

CelebHomes: It was a surprise to find out they would do a series on their own. Obi-Wan KenobiWhat was your first reaction to the question?

DC:It was a great feeling. Obi-Wan is one of my favourite characters. To learn more about him and his history between the prequels, and the original trilogy was something I wanted to know. Obi-Wan Kenobi, one of George Lucas’ last characters, is very charming. The character development was very important to us so we made sure that it was protected. How would it look? Was that his evolution? Was this his motivation? We can see his motivation when we visit him in A New Hope, he’s a completely different person and we want to really learn ‘OK, what happened during those 20 years?’
