We’re not gonna lie to each other, the last trilogy Star Wars was not unanimous among fans. While many questions remained unanswered, it may well be that this error will be fixed soon. LucasFilm plans to bring back a number of postlogy characters in future projects. In any case, this is what Kathleen Kennedy has just announced.
Rey, Poe, Finn … soon back?
Indeed, in a recent interview with Empire Magazine, the president of Lucasfilm addressed the question of the future of the characters of the last trilogy which concluded with L’Ascension de Skywalker. And from what she suggests, these protagonists could well make a return in the next films of the franchise :
These are not characters that we will forget. They will live on and these are conversations that continue with the creative team.
What exactly does Kathleen Kennedy hear? Which characters could make their comeback and how?
It is true that a lot of elements were not developed enough in the last trilogy like for example the cloning of Palpatine, in which way Ben Solo took the head of the Knights of Ren …
An idea that seems to seduce
It also remains to be seen whether the interpreters of these characters will be ready to put on their costumes again. One thing is pretty sure, Oscar Isaac doesn’t want it unless he has to buy a house. On the other hand, Adam Driver who is currently playing in House of Gucci of Ridley Scott disagrees.
Indeed, in an interview for UNILAD, the actor explained that he was not totally against this idea. He said his “only goal is to work with great directors“. And to continue by talking about the scope of the project in which he is involved:
There are some interesting things to work on both. I always just follow the people I would be interested in working with, and see if I am suitable for the role. No, I am absolutely not opposed to this idea.
It is therefore clear that Driver is up to play Kylo Ren again (or Ben Solo) but in what form? Because as a reminder, he dies in Rey’s arms at the end of L’Ascension de Skywalker. Maybe Disney is preparing a movie or series for Disney + that will focus on the character’s past or its switch to the Dark side … After all, some old characters like Luke Skywalker and Lando have appeared in The Mandalorian and we can see Darth Vader again in the series Obi-Wan Kenobi expected for 2022.
