This Actress is Ready to Revive Star Wars Characters – Can You Guess Who?

The Future of Star Wars: New Productions to Come

After Obi-Wan, a Natalie Portman says she is open to discussion

Launched in the late 1970s, Star Wars is one of the best known and most lucrative franchises of the world. Each release of a feature film is expected, series such as The Mandalorian or Andor have been acclaimed, and the different versions, whether literary or video game, are doing well. In the months and years to come, the universe will be enriched by several other productions. From this summer, we will be entitled to a series of real shots dedicated to Ahsoka which will be followed on Disney+ by Skeleton Crew, The Acolyte or even season 2 from Andor.

In the movies, things have been blurry for a long time, but on now know that a movie will come conclude the adventures of the mandalorian and Grogu, that Rey will be back for new adventures, and that a feature film will come tell us about the birth of the Jedi Order. In short, the program is solid, and the fans are waiting to find out if it all lives up to their expectations. Last year, on was entitled to two important returns in Obi-Wan Kenobi, since Ayden Christensen handed over the costume of Vader alongside Ewan McGregor. The series was lukewarm, but it was a hell of a good dose of nostalgia for fans of the license.

It is more or less this question that was asked to Natalie Portman during a session of questions and answers organized during the Cannes festival, where the actress is present with May-December by Todd Haynes. At the question : “Is there a chance for Natalie Portman to return to Star Wars“, the actress replies bluntly:

In other words, either it is planned but the information is highly confidential, or it is not intended at all. According to the announced program, the second option is the most probable. Anyway, the one who played Padmé Amidala, senator and wife of Anakin Skywalker, from 199 to 2005, seems ready to to regain son character in one way or another.

However, the action would necessarily have to take place before the end of episode 3 or son appearance is made through flashbacks. Besides, on already offered him to return to Star Wars, but it was a mistake by Taika Waititi, who had simply forgotten that Natalie Portman had already had an important role within the franchise. A bona fide mistake, which led the actress to think it was a joke:

Now it remains to be seen if Disney has a project for her in the boxes. At present, there is nothing to suggest that Natalie Portman will ever become Padmé Amidala again. But who knows? A few years ago, no one seriously imagined that Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen would find their characters…
