Thor 4 Star Natalie Portman Rumored To Return As Padme For Future Star Wars Projects After Obi-Wan Kenobi

According to our sources, Star Wars content is really firing on all cylinders right now, with many exceptional revivals of older material. Some fans may be tired of the constant crossovers with their favorite Skywalker saga, but they must feel as if they can’t get enough of these old characters coming back in more interesting ways than ever before. From The Mandalorian to Obi-Wan Kenobi (as played by Ewan McGregor), there have been some wonderful pop culture icons making a comeback in fresh new guises. This kind of depth and dimensionality hasn’t been shown in legacy characters in the past. With that, we are happy to report through our trusted sources that Natalie Portman will be reprising her role as Padme Amidala for Star Wars.

Will It Be Odd To See Natalie Portman See Returning For Star Wars

While it previously would’ve seemed out of the realm of possibility that Natalie Portman would pull off a return to Star Wars following her previous character – Padme – it makes sense that she be allowed to return in some capacity. After all, we just recently saw Anakin Skywalker (in Obi-Wan Kenobi) being allowed to make an appearance to further show his development, which is what we were only briefly shown during the prequels. While details are scarce at this point, there’s no denying that additional storylines regarding Padme are needed and will likely be explored with the primary drama introducing us to the character as she attempts to make a name for herself in the galaxy.

The Project Details Are Under Wraps As Of Now

For now, all we know is that Natalie Portman may be reprising her role as Padme in Star Wars but that’s as much as we can tell. There is much potential for her to appear in multiple ways such as a new show or even a continuation of her previous appearances. The Clone Wars animated show was a hit but did not feature much of Padme, who didn’t seem to play enough of an important role next to Anakin and Obi-Wan; there could be more stories that revolve around her during that era.
