‘Star Wars’, more and more, is getting used to bring your classic characters back no matter how much time has passed. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Boba Fett, and even the young Luke Skywalker have made appearances here and there throughout an ever-expanding universe. However, there is one we carry almost twenty years without seeing the hair (or the outlandish hat): Padmé Amidala.

Now it is Natalie Portman herself who has spoken about the possible return of the Queen of Naboo when, responding to fans in GQ, she had to face the question “Will Padme return to Star Wars?”. The answer, as sad as it was strangely hopeful: “I don’t have any information about this. Nobody has asked me to come back, but I’m open to it“.
It should be remembered that, during the filming of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, Taika Waititi, who was already writing the script for his future ‘Star Wars’, He asked him what he would like to do a character in the saga, to which she replied “I already did.” That same day, Waititi was lamenting her mistake backstage. By the way, the director continues to edit his film for a long-term release. Who knows what comes out of there.
Amidala has had a life without Natalie Portman, however: was of pivotal importance in ‘The Clone Wars’ and ‘Forces of Destiny’, in addition to appearing in various video games, books and comics, giving the character more personality. It seems there’s no need to bring Natalie Portman back, especially now that she, twenty years later, looks very different to her than she did in Revenge of the Sith, but Disney plans are always inscrutable.
