Star Wars: Oscar Isaac Turns Down Possibility of Returning as Poe Dameron

Oscar Isaac shoots down possibility of returning as Poe Dameron

Even though Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker earned more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office since its debut in December, J.J. Abrams’ epic conclusion was clearly received with mixed reviews from critics and fans. In addition, it is common knowledge to fans that some of the film’s cast including Oscar Isaac had also expressed their disappointment with their characters’ development throughout the latest trilogy.

That’s why in a recent interview with Deadline, when asked about the possibility of coming back to the popular sci-fi franchise, Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac doubles down on his decision of not returning as Poe Dameron in the future. Although he had a fun filming experience on Star Wars, he further revealed that he is actually done taking on high-scale projects or blockbuster films as it isn’t something he’s really “set out” to do.

“Probably, but who knows. If I need another house or something. I’ve felt like I had been a man in a desert for many years because I’ve been serving these bigger films.” Isaac said. “I enjoyed the challenge of those films and working with a very large group of incredible artists and actors, prop makers, set designers, and all that was really fun.”

After six months since Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker had made its premiere in December, director J.J. Abrams’ epic conclusion to the Skywalker saga has already earned more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office and has recently received three Oscar nominations including Best Original Score, Best Visual Effects and Best Sound Editing.

Returning cast members for The Rise of Skywalker include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast are Naomi Ackie (Doctor Who), Richard E. Grant (Logan), Dominic Monaghan (Lord of the Rings), and Keri Russell (The Americans), who will also be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian. The role of Leia Organa is once again played by Carrie Fisher, using previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

In addition to directing, J.J. Abrams co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio (ArgoJustice League). Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, and Abrams will produce, with Callum Greene and Jason McGatlin executive producing. Composer John Williams, who has scored every chapter in the Star Wars saga since 1977’s A New Hope, will return to a galaxy far, far away with Rise of Skywalker.
