Star Wars currently has its plate full with the amount of TV series and movies in the works. But one more wouldn’t hurt… would it? With the introduction of Disney+, all the rage lately has been asking actors under the Disney umbrella if their character should get a spinoff. And honestly, with characters like Cassian Andor from Rogue One and Gaston from Beauty and the Beast (yes, seriously) getting their own spinoff shows, no character is too little or too big for their own series.
So what about the spinoffs over on the Star Wars side? As mentioned, there’s the Andor series, The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka and Obi-Wan Kenobi, which are all spinoff series from notable characters in the galaxy. But could the galaxy accommodate a spinoff for one Bo-Katan Kryze? Would the Bo-Katan actress even want that? Luckily, there are answers.
Speaking to ComicBook.com, Bo-Katan actress Katee Sackhoff shared her thoughts on a Bo-Katan spinoff. Her answer was quite surprising because of how genuine it was. Here’s what she had to say:
"It’s an interesting thing, because I love Bo and, selfishly, as the performer that gets to play her, I’m like, Sure, let’s do this. But at the same time, Bo fits very beautifully in the Mando world. That’s not to say that she couldn’t have shown up in these other things, but she fits beautifully as this character that is in that world right now. And it would just be selfish of me to want more."
Although, there was one thing Sackhoff noted would be interesting if she were to get a spinoff:
"I will say that if they were going to do something like that, not to take myself out of it, but I would love to see early Bo, which … there’s not enough Botox in the world to take me back there."
Does Star Wars need a Bo-Katan spinoff?
Typically, most actors do say that they’d be in favor of their character getting a spinoff. But Sackhoff’s answer makes a lot of sense. We’re sure the way they planned it, there’ll be more live-action Bo-Katan in the future.
But there’s still a lot to explore with this current story arc she has going on in The Mandalorian. We’ve yet to find out what will happen now that the Darksaber has been rightfully won by Mando. And it’ll be exciting to see how she deals with the tough decision of wanting to reclaim Mandalore while also having to deal with Din Djarin in her way now.
Also, we’ve been taking these shows one at a time so far. But everything should be taken in moderation. Too many series in the works and things can start to get messy — either with it being a problem of quantity over quality or the influx of Star Wars TV shows cheapening the excitement of getting a new one. So far, we’ve yet to reach that breaking point, thankfully. But Disney+ has to walk a fine line in the coming years as more original content is announced.
