    A new interview with Adam Driver explains how he feels about his experience with Star Wars, briefly noting that he is interested in the future of the franchise - whether he's involved with it or not.



    In an interview with the French magazine Premium (hat tip r/StarWarsLeaks) as part of the promotional tour for his recent film House of Gucci, Driver was asked about whether or not he was effectively 'over' with Star Wars now that he's finished a trilogy of films. He offered a response that did not commit to, or disconfirm, plans to return to the galaxy far, far away as the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa, but at the very least, it does not sound like he is opposed to the idea:

    He also brought up how being involved in a high-profile franchise like Star Wars, compared to having a lot of work on independent films, was a life-changing experience:



    Whether or not Adam Driver will ever take part in Star Wars again remains to be seen, but Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy seemed to indicate that there will be future opportunities to tell stories with characters introduced in the sequel trilogy. It's anyone's guess if Kylo Ren/Ben Solo is going to be a part of those plans, and if the actor who brought that character to life will return to the part, particularly since the character becoming one with the Force at the very end of The Rise of Skywalker indicates that future appearances might be complicated. In any case, Driver's latest film, House of Gucci, is now playing in theaters.

    I'm kinda surprised he was that open to it. Might've just been a diplomatic answer, or maybe I'm too pessimistic for my own good, but I've always thought that Driver took after his fictional dad when it came to Star Wars- as in, he wasn't really interested in it at all.

    Who knows, maybe they just got him in an extra good mood! I certainly got the same initial impression as you though.

    As difficult as it was to imagine right after the ST ended, and even today for that matter, I could definitely see them all coming back in some capacity in the future. Here's hoping, at least. Star Wars Ten in 2030 has a nice ring to it!! (though I actually hope they ditch the episode #s by then)

    For what it's worth, since force ghosts can interact with real objects. It might not matter whether or not "BEN SOLO LIVES!". Though, I doubt Driver would want to come back for only a scene or two. No matter how much money they give him. *cough Ford cough*
