7 Star Wars Actors Who Slammed The Franchise

Star Wars Obi-Wan Regrets

If you're a fan of the franchise and are looking at Peter Serafinowicz's picture thinking you never saw him in a Star Wars film, you would be right! That doesn't mean he hasn't played a big part in bringing a certain Star Wars character to the big screen.

Serafinowicz provided the voice for Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. He did a lot of work on the movie, and wasn't exactly enamored with how his work turned out.

"I was very disappointed when the film actually came out, because I didn't think it was very good! But it was certainly an extremely exciting thing to be a part of."

That's not all the actor had to say about the movie, which apparently paid him peanuts to work on. He also described the CGI aliens in a way that hearkens back to the dark times... before the Empire:

"It reminds me of, if you’re watching Channel 4 during the day and there’s an old black-and-white film on, and someone’s in blackface, and they just bought this film for eight pounds to show and nobody’s checked it. It was like, the most racist film of the twentieth century!"
