Oscar Isaac Says He’s Open To Return As Poe Dameron In ‘Star Wars’

But the actor has one caveat...

Oscar Isaac Star Wars Poe Dameron

Poe Dameron actor Oscar Isaac revealed what it would take for him to return to the Star Wars franchise.

Oscar Isaac last played Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and the actor seemed pretty hesitant about playing the character in the future, joking that they couldn’t “Disney Plus” him. Since departing the Star Wars franchise, Isaac has appeared in Dune, entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Moon Knight, and voiced Spider-Man 2099 for the upcoming Spider-Verse sequel.

Will Poe Return?

Despite appearing reluctant to return as Poe Dameron in Star Wars, Oscar Isaac might be coming around to the idea now that a few years have passed. There’s a chance Poe could also show up in Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron or a new Disney Plus project. Here’s was Isaac told Jess Cagle on SiriusXM when asked about a potential Star Wars return:

“Hmm. I don’t know. No, I don’t know. I mean I’m open … to anything you never know … I have no real feeling one way or the other, you know, I’m open to any kind of good story, any good thing to do and time’s the one thing that could become much more challenging as you get older and with kids and all that. It’s like, ‘Where do these things fit in?’ Start realizing that there’s not time for all of it, but if there was a great story and a great director, and Kathy [Kennedy] came to me and was like, ‘Hey, we’ve got this idea,’ you know, I’m so, so open to it.”

Here is the official synopsis for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker:

Lucasfilm and director J. J. Abrams join forces once again to take viewers on an epic journey to a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the riveting conclusion of the seminal Skywalker saga, where new legends will be born and the final battle for freedom is yet to come.
