The star, 49, has played Obi-Wan in the science fiction films, and he noticed recently that the conversations have evolved in recent years about the trilogy.
Ewan said: “You know, our films weren’t much liked when they came out, by my generation who loved the first ones.”
“I think people of our generation wanted to feel the way they’d felt when they saw those first three movies when they were kids, and George [Lucas] wanted to take our ones in a different direction, he had a different idea. It was tricky at the time, I remember.”
“But now, all these years later, I’m really aware of what our films meant to the generation they were made for, the children of that time.”
Among the generation of fans, the popularity surprised Evan, and he mentioned to the Empire:
“They really like them.”
“I’ve met people who, they mean a lot to them, those films, more so than the original three, and I’m like, ‘Are you kidding?”
Evan recently mentioned that he doesn’t worry about if the fans spot him.
The 49-year-actor told that he is hardly recognized when he is out or about.
The star, who lives in Los Angeles who last lived in London, mentioned and read: “My life is that I am an actor and I am recognised for some of my work, here and there, but it’s not all the time.”
