The One Part Of
Attack Of The
Clones That Ewan
McGregor Says
We'll Never
Ewan McGregor, who's executive producing and starring in the upcoming Disney+ series "Obi-Wan Kenobi," remembers the issues that arose while filming "Attack of the Clones" with a new (at the time) high-definition digital system. One of those issues wasn't discovered until post-production, and it's possible that, if it had been discovered earlier, viewers may have experienced a completely different film.
The cameras used to film the second movie of the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy were massive and gave off a continuous hum. Because the technology was so new, the crew wasn't aware of how much that hum would affect the scenes being filmed.
McGregor remembered, “None of the original dialogue made it through because of that [...]" And with that, McGregor has given fans something to ponder: whether the dialogue in "Attack of the Clones" would've been improved if they had been able to use what was shot, instead of re-recording the movie line by line in an audio booth.
