Newsarama Interview with James Arnold Taylor

Newsarama posted an interview with The Clone Wars voice actor James Arnold Taylor on Friday. The interview includes exclusive pictures from the new Darth Maul episodes as well as some video clips.

James, let’s start by talking Clone Wars. This big final arc of the season sees the return of Darth Maul. While the initial encounter between Darth Maul and Obi-Wan was of course not played by you in the live action film, this is going to be a big thing for your character. What do you do to build up to something that is this momentous for the character, but is playing off of something you didn’t initially take part in? 

JAT: Well, you watch that confrontation, you watch the film, you know. I watched Phantom Menace again to reconnect with specifically that scene. Usually when I’m watching the prequels, watching what Ewan McGregor did or studying him in any way, or even studying the original films to study Sir Alec Guinness, I am zoned into the whole character. With this, I felt I really need to concentrate on just that scene and what’s happening. The whole thing for me is he didn’t kill him! And he cut off Anakin’s limbs, and he didn’t kill him! He never gets to really get that in! There’s all that rage, it’s really important for the whole arc of Obi-Wan Kenobi, because it’s the one time he really gives in to that more carnal side of himself. He’s just going, “that’s it, you’re done, you’re toast.”

You can read the full interview here which includes a lot of nice insight into the upcoming episodes.
