Ewan McGregor

WAN MCGREGOR RIDINGAN ELECTRIC HARLEY INTO THE FUTUREIS EXACTLY what 2020 needs. From his breakthrough role in to playing ’ legendary Obi-Wan Kenobi, McGregor has won over legions of fans. Now he’s playing himself, back on a bike with his best friend Charley, the third series in their epic motorcycle saga around the world: “I’ve forged a relationship with Charley that I don’t have with anyone else.” A lot has changed since the first series in 2004; now they’re focused on reducing their carbon footprint by riding prototype electric Harley-Davidsons. Harleys are known for their distinctive growl, but with these bikes the two roll into town quietly, asking locals, “Mind if we plug in?” The Scottish actor is swarmed by fans in a few spots, but mostly it’s only him and Charley on the road filming each other from cameras mounted on their crash helmets. Two old friends riding through otherworldly landscapes on custom electric Harleys—maybe there is a bit of star power involved. But the journey is fueled by an even stronger force—friendship.
