Judge Orders Ewan McGregor To Split Star Wars Royalties With His Ex-Wife
A judge has ruled that actor Ewan McGregor needs to split his royalties from the Star Wars films with his ex-wife- Eve Mavrakis. According to a recent piece in Comicbook.com, the two ended their 22-year marriage back in 2018 but the actual divorce process has been ongoing ever since. The judge ruled that the couple will split royalties and residuals from projects that McGregor worked on during the time they were married. This includes the Star Wars prequel trilogy.
According to reports, McGregor gets to keep his 30 vehicles while his ex-wife Mavrakis may keep their Los Angeles home which has a value of $6.62 million. She also gets to keep her jewelry, five vehicles, some bank accounts and roughly $500,000 in cash. In addition Mavrakis will receive child support from McGregor which is estimated to come in at around $15,000 each month for their 9-year old daughter Anouk. The couple shares joint legal and physical custody of their daughter. Mavrakis is also entitled to spousal support of an additional $35,000 per month.
As we’ve previously reported here at MickeyBlog, McGregor will reprise his role as Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi in an upcoming series for Disney+.According to reports the show is slated to start shooting next spring and will be directed by Deborah Chow who most recently worked on The Mandalorian.
The Obi-Wan series has had its ups and downs particularly when it comes to the script but according to McGregor, things are shaping up, “The scripts are really good. I saw 90% of the writing and I really liked it.” There were rumors that Disney had cut back on the number of episodes in the series but Comicbook.com said that the actor when speaking to them said, . “It just slipped to next year, that’s all.” He added, think that so now that Episode IX came out and everyone at Lucasfilm’s got more time to look to spend on the writing, they felt like they wanted more time to write the episodes. I read about 80-90 percent of what they’ve written so far, and it’s really, really good. And instead of shooting this August, they just want to start shooting in January, that’s all. It’s nothing more dramatic than that. It often happens in projects. They just wanted to push it to next year.”
