Love them or hate them, the Star Wars Sequels is here to stay. It seems like we can not go a month without someone on social media without someone claiming that the Sequels are being erased from the canon timeline. Well, thanks to a report from Empire Magazine we know that the erasing of the sequels are definitely not in the plans for Disney. Matter of fact, it now looks like we could be seeing more on some of the Sequel Trilogy characters according to Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy.
Kathleen Kennedy Talks About The Future Of Sequel Trilogy Characters
We all know one of the biggest issues from The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker was the lack of character development. From Captain Phasma (Gwendolyn Christie) to Finn (John Boyega) it just seemed like these characters could have been a bigger part of the story. Well, thanks to an interview with Empire Magazine and Kathleen Kennedy it seems like these characters will have their moment in the Star Wars story future.
“While Obi-Wan Kenobi is springing from the Prequel Trilogy, and Rogue One prequel Andor bookends the Original Trilogy with the post-Return Of The Jedi ‘Mando-verse’ shows, it sounds like there may be more stories to come involving the crew introduced in the most recent Sequel Trilogy – which wrapped up on the big screen with The Rise Of Skywalker in 2019. “Certainly, those are not characters we’re going to forget,” teased Kennedy of that third generation of Star Wars heroes. “They will live on, and those are conversations that are going on with the creative team as well.” The Force is as strong as ever.”
What Spinoffs Could We See
Of course, this news might upset those fans that claim the Sequels ruined Star Wars. But it looks like those fans will have to deal with those movies staying canon. What is interesting about this news is what possible spinoffs could wee see. Finn actor John Boyega said he was done with Star Wars but then came back to say if J.J. Abrams and Kennedy are still there he would be interested in a Finn project.
I myself would love to see a Captain Phasma series. Phasma was so hyped up for The Force Awakens. But when it came to the movie it seems like they didn’t know how to use her. Of course, we could always see a Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) series when he was a spice runner working with Zori Bliss (Keri Russell) and Babu Frik. There are a lot of possibilities, so like always we will just have to wait.
