Natalie Portman Is Game For A Star Wars Return

If you will enable me to get on my soapbox for a second, it is form of baffling that we have by no means as soon as seen Padmé return to “Star Wars” in live-action since her dying in childbirth on the finish of “Revenge of the Sith.” In the saga-ending “The Rise of Skywalker,” director J.J. Abrams noticed match to deliver again Liam Neeson’s Qui-Gon Jinn, Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi, and even Hayden Christensen’s Anakin Skywalker in voice roles in the course of the climax of the film, to not point out Harrison Ford himself because the ghostly imaginative and prescient of Han Solo. But regardless of Kylo Ren’s (Adam Driver) obsession along with his familial historical past, by no means as soon as does Padmé’s title even come up all through the complete trilogy. Weird!

We’re not the one ones who seen that evident omission, because it seems. In a video look with GQ Magazine (through Variety), Natalie Portman addressed a query about lastly making her grand return to that galaxy far, far-off in some trend. Interestingly sufficient, although she makes it clear that she hasn’t been approached for one more look, she does not rule something out, both. According to Portman:

“I have no information on this. No one’s ever asked me to return, but I’m open to it.”

Fans know that “The Clone Wars” collection at the very least included Padmé as a supporting character all through all seven seasons, albeit voiced by actor Catherine Taber. But 2005 marked the final time anybody’s seen Portman because the fearless senator, secret spouse to Anakin, and mom of Luke and Leia Skywalker. Contrast that with McGregor and Christensen reprising their Jedi roles within the “Obi-Wan Kenobi” collection and it is greater than just a little eyebrow-raising. It’s onerous to think about any future film or present making use of Portman’s abilities once more … however by no means say by no means!
