Adam Driver On Star Wars: “I’m Not Doing Any More”

Actor Adam Driver played Kylo Ren in the new Star Wars trilogy, but don’t expect him to return to the sci-fi series anytime soon. He said on the SmartLess podcast recently that he’s aware that Lucasfilm is producing more Star Wars content, “but not with me.”

Driver went on to say, “I’m not doing any more.” Asked if he was finished with Star Wars because of Kylo Ren’s death in The Rise of Skywalker, Driver confirmed that is indeed the case (via ScreenRant).

Before this, Driver discussed how Kylo Ren’s arc in the new Star Wars trilogy was not originally set to unfold the way it did. In the finished movie, Kylo Ren refined himself as Ben Solo. But the original plan was for Ben to lose himself as the sith lord more and more throughout the Star Wars sequel trilogy.

While Driver is done with Star Wars, Ridley is coming back to play Rey in a new upcoming Star Wars movie. It is one of three new Star Wars films in the works, the others being a “dawn of the Jedi” film from Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny director James Mangold and another one, set during the New Republic era, from The Mandalorian’s Dave Filoni.
