It’s like me knocking at Disney’s door again!”

McGregor says, “It was nice to come back and to bridge that gap between me and Alec Guinness. I got as much, or more, out of playing him this time than I did in the first three movies put together. That’s to do with the writing, and the people we were making the series with, and the technology, and how different everything is.” The forthcoming Disney+ series is expected to bridge the gap between both versions of the character.
