No matter what side you are on when it comes to debating the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy from 2015 – 2019 you can almost unanimously agree that the series was a disappointment by the end. Despite the high praise of The Force Awakens (mostly due to nostalgia) the ship began to sink during The Last Jedi and then hit the ocean floor with The Rise of Skywalker.
After the “mixed reception” of the trilogy many of the actors such as Daisy Ridley (who played Rey), John Boyega (who played Finn), Adam Driver (who played Kylo Ren) and Oscar Issac (who played Poe Dameron) all seemed to have zero interest in returning to the franchise.
Well it appears that at least one of those actors has had a change of heart nearly three years later. After recently staring in the Marvel series Moon Knight Oscar Issac may be ready to return to a galaxy far far away.
While talking on SiriusXM with Jess Cagle, Issac spoke about a recent experience in Denmark:
“So I’m up in here in this like little, you know, this little village in Denmark up here and they had this very small music festival down here and it was shockingly, very young kids that were there … a couple times people would just be like ‘Star Wars, Star Wars.’ They would just yell Star Wars at me. It felt great. It felt really great … I think Star Wars generally, Moon Knight a bit more, you know, those are like the big ones. Those are the bigger tent projects. So, those are the ones.“
When asked if he would ever return he said:
“Hmm. I don’t know. No, I don’t know. I mean, I’m open to anything you never know. I have no real feeling one way or the other, you know, I’m open to any kind of good story, any good thing to do and time’s the one thing that could become much more challenging as you get older and with kids and all that. It’s like, ‘Where do these things fit in?’ Start realizing that there’s not time for all of it, but if there was a great story and a great director, and Kathy came to me and was like, ‘Hey, we’ve got this idea,’ you know, I’m so, so open to it.“
With Disney developing nearly a dozen spin-off series for Disney Plus perhaps a Poe Dameron series about his smuggling days could be in the cards.
What do you think? Would you like to see the return of Poe Dameron?
