Ewan McGregor Is One With His Lightsaber
Do you remember that childhood memory wherein when we would play sword fight with out friends, we usually do our own sound effects? From the clashing of the swords up to the shouts of anger, we would do all sound effects on our own. This is what Obi-Wan Kenobi actor, Ewan McGregor, did while filming the fight scenes.
As stated by George Lucas, some of the actors would make special effects sounds with their voices while practicing using lightsabers and other similar props. Ewan McGregor built this habit and continued making noises while filming the scenes. Of course, they will be digitally cut during post-production to be replaced by the actual sound effects, but if you look closely, you can see McGregor’s mouth move during fight scenes.
