I posted this on another thread but it probably belongs here. This is from a long interview with McGregor in the Sept 8 Birmingham Post. This is just the relevant Star Wars bit: (about AotC)... 'It was just the same thing, the same hard work and the same difficulty trying to react to things that aren't there. It's weird. I do the film and I go away. I am so uninvolved in it.' So uninvolved in fact that he didn't even know it was to be called Attack of the Clones until a journalist asked him for his reactions. Rather less diplomatic than about his musical opinions regarding Elton John, McGregor is reported as saying it was a 'terrible, terrible title.' 'I don't think it's a good one,' he reiterates, safe in the knowledge he's contracted to appear in the third episode whatever George Lucas toes he treads on. 'I mean, how would you feel about being in a film called Attack of the Clones. It all sounds a bit Flash Gordon. But then maybe that's the point, that it's an episodic sci fi series. Maybe it does make sense and I'm just being all moany.' Given his comments about being bored senseless on the set of The Phantom Menace, you get the feeling that the whole Star Wars experience hasn't quite been what McGregor imagined it would be. 'I don't even feel it's made any difference to my career. I'm just a character in Star Wars. The nice thing about it though is the kids. I love them coming up and talking to me about it. It reminds me of how I felt about the first three. They want to know all the details. Did you really kill Darth Maul? Did you cut him in half? How does your light sabre work? I love all that.' He pauses for a moment before adding, 'it's a bit weird though when adults have the same questions.'
