Star Wars: Characters From The Latest Trilogy Should Reappear Soon


Star Wars: Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy said the characters featured in the Star Wars trilogy that ended with The Skywalker Ascension (2019) may return in the future. The executive even said that the company, together with Disney, is already thinking about how to take advantage of them.

“Certainly, these are not characters that we will forget,” Kennedy said in an interview with Empire this Monday (22). “They’re going to live and these are the conversations that are happening with the creative team as well,” she added.

She didn’t specify, but given her work with the franchise, it’s possible that Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong’o), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Finn (John Boyega), Rey (Daisy Ridley) and others appear in series, as this has been a bet of producers.

In this sense, the series Obi-Wan Kenobi, which will tell the story of the Jedi who trained Anakin (Darth Vader) and Luke Skywalker, is one of the most anticipated. Kennedy praised the return of Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen to the roles.

“What was most exciting was being on set and seeing them both get excited,” she said. “They hadn’t seen each other for a long time. I was amazed at how incredibly emotional it was for each of them to go back to those roles and realize how important Star Wars was to each of them. It was the beginning of their careers,” she argued.

In addition to Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Star Wars universe recently won, at Disney+, the series The Mandalorian and The Bad Batch (animation). In the future, productions such as Andor (which should debut in 2022) and The Acolyte (still undated) will be released, as well as The Book of Boba Fett, which opens on December 29 of this year.
