Oscar Isaac is best known for his beloved character Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Next Trilogy. In an interview with SiriusXM, the actor mentioned the possibility of the character being reprised and said he is open to “anything.” He said that despite being the lead in Marvel Studio’s Moon Knight, Poe Dameron has given him a “bigger spotlight.” He deems Poe Dameron to be his most recognized character.
He said in his interview, “If there’s a great story and a great director and Kathy [Lucasfilm president] came to me and was like, ‘I have this great idea,’ then I’m so open to it.” The actor also pointed out other important factors like age and fatherhood.
We saw Isaac last in Star Wars back in 2019’s Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. It was when he teamed up with Finn and Rey to defeat Emperor Palpatine. Isaac declined the opportunity to return to Star Wars in 2020 as Poe Dameron. He expressed a burnt-out experience in the franchise, feeling the need for more independent projects. “I’ve felt like I had been a man in a desert for many years because I’ve been serving these bigger films,” Isaac expressed. He joked that he would return to the Star Wars franchise only if he needed another house or property.”
Star Wars films moved to Disney+ after the third trilogy. Several projects have since been added to the streaming service. Recent projects have delved deeper into characters from both the prequel and original trilogy, including Obi-Wan Kenobi and The Book of Boba Fett. Meanwhile, The Bad Batch Season 2 and Tales of the Jedi (the animated series) are currently in the development phase. In addition, comic book releases will accompany the novels, including, Brotherhood and Shadow of the Sith.
Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker is still the final Star Wars movie. However, there are rumors of a Taika Waititi Star Wars movie. Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, previously hinted at a release of Waititi’s film in late 2023. However, the official release date is not yet announced. Any details regarding the upcoming project and its release remain under wrap.
