new star wars trio future

Nothing ever ends with Star Wars. A universe that began back in 1977, Star Wars has expanded from the big screen to conquer TV, comics, books, video games, and now, streaming. With Disney+ opening the door for more Star Wars stories to be told after the wild success of the streaming platform’s inaugural series The Mandalorian, could we see the new Star Wars trilogy trio continue their adventures even after the end of the Skywalker Saga in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker?

Unlikely, stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac say. The Rise of Skywalker stars say that their adventures as Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron are over after Episode 9’s release, with no interest in any of them appearing in a future Disney+ title.

When we first meet Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran) in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, she is immediately established as the movie’s everywoman — a spunky Resistance underling who believes in fighting for the cause above all else, except for perhaps the occasional fangirl moment when she meets her heroes.

We see that when she first meets Finn (John Boyega) who, admittedly, kind of stumbled into the hero role in The Force Awakens. But we see no such reaction to the dashing, starfighter pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) — maybe because they were in a tense life-or-death situation, or maybe because he was tangentially responsible for her sister Paige Tico’s death. In reality, according to a new Star Wars comic book, it’s because they had already met.

Spoiler warning: This article reveals plot points from Star Wars Forces of Destiny: Rose & Paige.

Carrie Fisher The Last Jedi

In the Star Wars: The Last Jedi behind-the-scenes sizzle reel that debuted at this year’s D23 Expo, Carrie Fisher said the upcoming sequel is powerful because “it’s about family.” Sadly, her words have taken on a whole new meaning in the wake of her sudden death at the end of last year: it will now be about watching the final time this actress – who, for many fans, has felt like a part of their pop culture family for 30 years – steps into the role of Princess-turned-General Leia, one of the most iconic sci-fi heroes ever conceived.

In Entertainment Weekly’s latest barrage of Star Wars news, there’s a story about the bond Leia shares with Oscar Isaac‘s Resistance pilot Poe Dameron, her impact on his growth as a leader, and the vulnerable place we find the Resistance at the start of the new film.

Poe Dameron is the man. The Resistance soldier is the best damn fighter pilot in the sky, and he’s nothing but a big ball of drive, kindness and charisma. Oscar Isaac is incredibly charismatic in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, making you invest in a character you really don’t know that much about. Maybe we’ll learn more about the character in Star Wars: Episode VIII, which is currently filming, but until then, we can go on a few other adventures with the fighter pilot thanks to a new Poe Dameron comic. Learn all about it below.
