Announced in 2019, the “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series ended just over a week ago, but there’s still plenty of news about the attraction.
One of them is behind the scenes of the creative process.
On his Instagram profile, Tom O’Connell, stuntman in the armor of Darth Vader, shared a series of anecdotes about the period when he was filming the series.
In the posts, he revealed a bit about the lightsaber training routine, weight loss throughout production, and photos with the cast.
“I lost about 20 pounds in the two weeks we filmed the final scene of the fight between Vader and Obi-Wan. And I loved every second of it! Anyone who has ever worked with these suits has my deep respect.
“Force push test… This padded landing was much softer than flying into a stone pillar.”
“Before we get to part 6, let me brag about the patience of @cinathewarriorprincess. Wearing Vader’s costume is quite a task and you can’t see well. I’m sure I’ve ruined all his lives during this rehearsal. All the while she threw her saber in my hand. Cheers to a great fight!
Previously, the official page of the “Star Wars” saga shared videos that followed the entire production trajectory, from the first recordings to the premiere.
One also includes interviews with protagonists Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan) and Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader) reflecting on their journey in the franchise.
