Natalie Portman has taken the time to talk about returning in the final movie of the Skywalker saga as Padmé Amidala in Star Wars: Episode IX.
With Star Wars: Episode IX being the final movie in the Skywalker saga, fans have been expecting the return of some familiar faces. We have already had confirmation of the likes of Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian returning, and theories have appeared about the appearance of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker as well.
Natalie Portman returning as Padmé Amidala in Star Wars: Episode IX is another character fans wouldn’t mind seeing make an appearance. And Natalie Portman has weighed in on the debate.

And if you are hoping to see Padmé make an appearance you should prepare yourself for disappointment. It doesn’t look as though she will feature in the upcoming movie. Portman explained in the interview that she doesn’t know anything about it and she is guessing the rumors are not true since she has no idea about it.
Check out the interview for yourself just below.
So a bit of a bummer for Padmé fans.
There is always the possibility that Portman is lying. She may be making an appearance but is just under strict instructions not to say so. Considering the intense Star Wars: Episode IX security to ensure leaks do not get out. And consider there are cast members out there who we still have no idea who they will be. It’s always possible. If you are hoping for a slither of hope.
I do think it is unlikely, however. I think if Padmé was returning Star Wars would have wanted to announce it. There are a lot of fans of the Ambassador so it would be great PR for Star Wars: Episode IX. But I can’t see it happening.
