Obi-Wan Kenobi is Star Wars’ truest believer (and more from The Clone Wars’ James Arnold Taylor)

mm

Published

on

We love Star Wars: The Clone Wars, however issues throughout this era within the galaxy far, distant aren’t very brilliant. Each character is being examined, and a few characters get examined greater than others. By “examined” we imply they get the kriff overwhelmed out of them regularly.

Few characters on the sequence undergo (once more, and once more, and once more) like Obi-Wan Kenobi suffers, however fortunately prequel-era Obi-Wan is a sass-master common. Irrespective of how dangerous issues get and irrespective of how onerous his coronary heart will get ripped out, Kenobi retains on going with a quip and the power of a real believer. The person behind Obi-Wan on this sequence, actor James Arnold Taylor, may be very a lot the identical. 

Taylor is downright historic relating to lending his vocal abilities to animated properties — throw a rock at a franchise that has dabbled in animation, and he is seemingly been part of it. He is been voicing prequel-era Obi-Wan ever for the reason that Genndy Tartakovsky iteration after which went on to voice each Kenobi and Plo Koon (and tons of others) recurrently on the newly returned sequence. He is additionally lent his abilities to each Star Wars movie within the Disney period, the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge experience Rise of the Resistance, and way more.

The person behind the person who makes Maul scream with anger each different second joined our heroes at Jabba the Pod for an interview on all issues Clone Wars, some Star Wars-related hope and knowledge, and what he’d wish to see from the upcoming Kenobi sequence on Disney+.

The sequence is again, but it surely’s again throughout this loopy time on the planet. How has that been for you? 

Properly, it is fantastic to be again. The one July the place they introduced at Comedian-Con we had recognized since February that the present was coming again, so for all these months we had been having to carry our tongue. After which it comes again and we nonetheless cannot speak about it, and now it is out and we will speak about it, however not absolutely till it is achieved.

So there’s additionally all these little parts that shock, and that is what it is like being an actor working in Star Wars, is that you simply’re all the time type of ready for these fantastic moments to occur. And so now, I do not know, it is totally different. We really feel the anticipation perhaps a bit of extra as a result of we’re all going, “Let’s sit at residence and watch Clone Wars.”

It is what all of us do as a solid, too — we actually are a household. And we actually do love this present, we’re all very keen about Star Wars. It is an thrilling time … but on the similar time, we’re hoping for one of the best for everyone.

In one among our favourite scenes from the brand new season (when Anakin will get on a holocall with Padme), it appears fairly clear to us that Obi-Wan undoubtedly is aware of about their relationship. How lengthy do you assume he is recognized? 

I believe he is all the time sensed it. He is recognized ever for the reason that starting that there was a spark between these two.

Dave Filoni and I’ve mentioned this and he is mentioned it in interviews as nicely, so I do know it is secure to say that Obi-Wan’s not an fool; he is aware of what is going on on, however he does not know the depth and magnitude of it. He definitely does not know they’re married, I believe. 

Do you assume having an trustworthy, cards-on-the-table dialog about all of this with Anakin is one thing he needs to do? Is the Jedi Code holding him again? 

I all the time really feel like with Obi-Wan, he is the true believer in all of this, much more so in all probability than Grasp Yoda or Qui-Gon. He is only a true believer within the code … he needs to do the fitting issues, and I do imagine that for those who had been to sit down down in a one-on-one, if Obi-Wan Kenobi was right here on the podcast, and he was simply speaking one-on-one and he mentioned, “Properly, no person’s gonna hear this, proper? Yoda will not hear this? Sure, I do imagine that the Jedi ought to have the ability to specific their emotions extra on this approach.”

It’d definitely be one thing that might come from Obi-Wan, as a result of he is acquired an enormous coronary heart. Clearly he is acquired a large coronary heart as a result of Dave Filoni offers me a foul time about it on a regular basis, like, “If you happen to’d simply completed the job down there on the lava banks all the things can be effective.”

You had the excessive floor and all the things! 

I had the excessive floor! So yeah, I believe he would love that. 

Obi-Wan goes via so much on this sequence, particularly from Season four on, he will get whipped by slavers, goes on a extremely disagreeable undercover mission, will get overwhelmed repeatedly by Maul, after which watches the love of his life be killed in entrance of him. The place does he get the power to maintain going and keep considerably optimistic?

It does return to the true-believer side of the character. It is a type of issues that I all the time made sure, once we had been within the sequence, that I did not watch (though it is one among my favourite films) Revenge of the Sith that a lot, as a result of I assumed he is not there but. He is nonetheless in these different locations, and it was attention-grabbing to see these seasons.

You recognize the humorous factor is, there was an article that had come out the place individuals had been saying [around] Season 2 or 3, “We would like extra Obi-Wan,” and I did a bit of snarky remark like, “Sure, me too.” [Dave Filoni] goes, “Watch it, cautious, I am going to provide you with extra Obi-Wan.”

And he did. And [in] each episode. Obi-Wan was getting beat up and all that … however I do assume that a lot of it does amass the place he’s lastly, once we see him even in reveals like [Star Wars] Rebels, attending to give that hologram message that I acquired to present. To have it there, lastly, it made it — for my journey because the actor, portraying the character — a lot extra highly effective to consider all of the issues he is gone via.

If you happen to simply watch the films, you may’t get a way of what these characters went via collectively and why that battle in that movie [Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith] is so vital. 

As one of many individuals who followers have recognized as Obi-Wan through the years, what are you hoping to see within the Kenobi sequence when it comes out on Disney+? 

I used to be an enormous fan of the e book Kenobi, which isn’t thought of canon now, I want it was, as a result of I believe it is so nice. What I liked about it was it was just like the previous westerns; it was like Shane, this traditional previous movie the place this drifter comes into city and secretly type of helps all people though he is not taking credit score for it and he is mysterious. Who’s he?

I might like to see a narrative like that the place he is on Tatooine, he is coping with the individuals there, he is serving to individuals — not undercover, however in a refined approach the place no person realizes who he’s. I might like to see some storylines like that. Whereas he is attempting to guard, in fact, Luke.

Is there any Star Wars knowledge that is caught with you thru the years that could be extra relevant now greater than ever? 

Being Obi-Wan for 18 years now on this fantastic franchise, it is nice to be a personality that’s so type of zen in all of it and is ready to have a look at issues with a positivity that’s past most individuals. And so it is infectious to me in that approach. I actually attempt to take that on myself.

It is lovely that Star Wars can be a few new hope, and that we’d all have that hope in us.
