It’s been nearly 20 years since Natalie Portman starred in a Star Wars project. However, it seems the actress is open to return as Padmé Amidala in a galaxy far, far away….

It seems every big Star Wars actor is finding their way back into the universe these days. From Temuera Morrison’s return as Boba Fett to Ewan McGregor getting his own Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off. Now it seems Natalie Portman wants to throw her hat in the ring, saying she’s “open” to return as Padmé Amidala in a recent interview, even though  “no one has asked.”

There’s truly no better time than ever for Natalie Portman to return as Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars universe. While Darth Vader is long dead, Hayden Christensen has recently made his return to the galaxy with projects like Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka. Perhaps a season 2 for either show could be the perfect opportunity for a return?

The future of Star Wars looks brighter than ever

During Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm made some exciting announcements for the future of the franchise. At the event, Kathleen Kennedy announced that Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Dave Filoni and James Mangold are all set to direct their own Star Wars movies. Details about the projects are still scarce, but each one is set during a different time period in the galaxy far, far away.

The announcement of these three new Star Wars movies marks an exciting time for fans of the franchise. With each movie being directed by a different filmmaker, there is sure to be a unique perspective and style brought to each project.
