Daisy Ridley, John Boyega And Oscar Isaac To Leave Star Wars After The Rise Of Skywalker

Daisy Ridley, John Boyega And Oscar Isaac To Leave Star Wars After The Rise Of Skywalker

There's not long to go until the Skywalker saga of Disney's Star Wars comes to an end, with the release of The Rise of Skywalker arriving on 10 December.

But does the film mark the end of the road for Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega) and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) within the space opera franchise?

As it stands, nothing is set in stone, although if you're hoping to see Boyega's character Finn in any of the current or planned Disney+ spin-off shows - including the wildly popular The Mandalorian - we've got some bad news for you.

When asked by Variety if he'd be willing to sign up for any of the TV projects, he said: "You ain't going to Disney+ me!"

So that's a no, then. That said, he is potentially up for reprising his role for another feature film.

He continued: "I ain't getting no Disney+ ! I'm watching it, though, but I'll stay in the feature films.

"As long as Daisy and Oscar are down for it, then I'll come back."

That answer might pose a few issues for the fans who are hoping the trio will return, however, as Ridley and Isaac aren't so sure.

Isaac told Variety: "I don't know," explaining that The Rise of Skywalker is like 'the closing of a chapter of my life'.

"[I'm] happy and feeling fulfilled that the task is complete. So I can't imagine what it would be that would make me want to redo this thing or revisit it."

Likewise, Ridley considers the final chapter in the trilogy to be her swansong within the franchise.

She explained: "I just don't know if anything could top this one, honestly.

"I think it's just a great story and a great close, and even though obviously the characters continue to exist, it would have to be so extraordinary [to return], and I don't know if that's possible."

Well, in the world of Star Wars (and with the endlessly deep pockets of the House of Mouse) anything is possible.

Heck, even Princess Leia is returning to the big screen despite the character's actor Carrie Fisher having passed away back in 2016.

Using footage shot for The Force Awakens, director JJ Abrams and the production team have cleverly crafted a number of scenes featuring the iconic General of the Resistance for the upcoming film.

So yeah, if they can bring an actor back to life, then surely they can find a way to bring Rey, Finn and Poe back together in a galaxy far, far away... again.
