Will Star Wars’ Oscar Isaac Play Poe Dameron Again? Here’s What The Actor Says


Is it over for the Skywalker saga? Recently, it feels like Lucasfilm is starting to make an effort to launch a new era within the Star Wars timeline that doesn’t completely rely on the story (and family) that started it all. With that in mind, we have to wonder if fan-favorites from this period of the franchise will still be explored down the line, like Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron. In the past, the actor hasn’t seemed interested in the prospect of a return, but let’s talk about the latest thoughts he shared when asked about playing the pilot again.

After wrapping up the role of Poe Dameron in 2019’s Star Wars: Rise of SkywalkerOscar Isaac said he was more inclined to make “handmade” movies than standing in front of a blue screen for major franchises like Star Wars. And he memorably joked (?) that he’d return to Dameron if he needed another house. Here’s what he says now:

I don’t know. I’m open to anything. You never know. I have no real feeling one way or another. I’m open to any good story. Time is the one thing that becomes challenging…as you get older and kids and all that. where do [movies] fit in? If there was a great story and a great director and [Lucasfilm president] Kathy [Kennedy] came to me and was like, ‘I have this great idea,’ then I’m so open to it.
