Billie Lourd Admits She Will Do Anything To Be In Star Wars Again

The actress joined the franchise in 2015’s ‘The Force Awakens.’

Lucasfilm confirmed plans to bring back Daisy Ridley’s Rey Skywalker for an upcoming project. Billie Lourd shared willingness to join her ‘Star Wars’ sequel trilogy co-star and play Connix or any other role in the future films following the news. She recently told ComicBook.com:

“Bring back Connix! I would love to bring back Connix. I would love to be involved in the universe in any way possible. I love being an ambassador. I wrote an essay, ‘The Keeper of Leia,’ and I love playing that role. I’m also obsessed, I’m a fangirl. I would do anything. I’ll be a creature, I’ll do whatever, run a droid and do the controls from behind the scenes. Anything I can do to be involved in this universe, I would do, because I just adore it so much.”

The upcoming film’s plot details remain under wraps, but Rey is set to rebuild the Jedi Order post-‘The Rise of Skywalker’ in it. It is still not clear if the story has room for other Resistance members’ return.

New ‘Star Wars’ Projects Are On The Horizon

‘New Jedi Order’ is expected to come out in 2026, and Ridley is excited to reprise her role for it. She told Empire Online in late April:

“Coming in a bit more eyes wide open, I suppose I feel more like I’m owning it. I suppose I owned it the first time. Basically, I’m an adult now. I certainly did not feel like an adult at the time. Obviously, personally, things have changed, and professionally, I’ve had lots of other experiences, so I definitely feel like it’s a different thing this time. There’s just a lot of joy with me and these films. Honestly, if I wasn’t excited, I wouldn’t have done it. It feels like a great thing to be part of.”

Lucasfilm is also planning a film about the Jedi’s early days with director James Mangold and working on another one that follows ‘The Mandalorian.’

Meanwhile, the first live-action from the High Republic era, ‘The Acolyte,’ is waiting for release in June.
