As the final chapter to the Skywalker saga draws to a close with ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ we will bid farewell to some characters. Except…maybe not all of them, as was revealed in a recent interview with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.
In an interview with MTV News Kennedy teased that we might see some of characters from the new trilogy appearing again in some shape or form;
“We’re using this appropriate time as an opportunity to see where we’re going now that we’re leaving the Skywalker Saga behind. But there’s no question that there’s certain characters that we’ve created certainly in the last three movies that we may very well wanna see down the line in the future.”
Does this mean Rey, Finn, and Poe will find themselves part of the next Saga in the Star Wars universe? Kennedy goes on to say in the interview;
“We are looking at the next saga. We are not just looking at another trilogy, we’re really looking at the next 10 years or more. This [movie] is the culmination of the Skywalker Saga; it’s by no means the culmination of Star Wars. I’m sitting down now with Dan Weiss and David Benioff … and Rian Johnson. We’re all sitting down to talk about, where do we go next? We’ve all had conversations about what the possibilities might be, but now we’re locking it down.”
So all we do know at the moment is that there will indeed be more Star Wars after ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ which opens in theaters on December 20th (especially with the live action series on Disney +). Let us know what you’re hoping to see next in the ongoing stories of a galaxy far far away.Geek Tyrant]
