    The fans, really on both sides of the equation (and yes, I hate the "both sides" argument but I think it's mostly suitable in this case) really did not help, as you said. I think that he's thankful for the fact that his career was elevated and probably his livelihood and choice of acting roles has only gone up, but his role in the ST must've undoubtedly been something that was underwhelming. I'm impressed that he gave it his all for this rather underwhelming role. I think that he was a great choice and I hope to see him again, but if he doesn't want to be back for more Star Wars, then that's fine too. He can even rant about the franchise and say that he hates it on Twitter or say that he absolutely loved it and wishes to be back.

    Either way, he did his part and I respect him for it.

    I think these are all relatively dead end characters that Lucasfilm shouldn’t bother returning to. They did their thing in the ST, and that’s it. Good job, now there’s more interesting stuff to explore.

    I think they will probably not be in Star Wars anymore, or anything else; they will be stigmatized and type-cast for the rest of their lives because everyone in the world hates the ST. They likely will end up in porn productions when they run out of money, which I look forward to seeing.

    No, just kidding. Not sure if they will be in more movies, but I'm sure they will appear in some kind of SW production. Boyega should stop talking negatively about "being Disney-plused" (his reference to being in movies and not on Disney TV for his character) as that may well be exactly what happens to him, and that isn't a bad thing. It's looking like they are doing better SW TV than they are movies.

    Yeah, that’s an outdated perception of TV. Being Disney-plused would be a step up, in my view.

    They have squandered potential, but there's nothing to be done about it now.

    Best to just leave them as side characters in certain multi-media projects and that's it. I don't know how else to put it. I'm more interested in what characters might come with The High Republic or after TROS then I am with the ST characters, if I'm being honest.

    I mean... Disney kind of (unpopular opinion alert) screwed up what cold have been a great ending. And (another unpopular opinion alert) I don't wanna see Rey crying over her precious baby Kywo who did a wittle oopsy.

    In 20-30 years they'll make Episodes X-XII and Rey will be a depressed suicidal recluse, Finn will return to his roots and be working as a janitor, and Poe will be running a small ragtag resistance group that will be fighting the Order of the Final Empire or something similar. Oh and BB-8 will be shutdown for years and only have few small cameos. And Rose will return only in the third movie for few scenes and we'll find out absolutely nothing about where she was and what she was doing.

    Because I'm no fan of the ST, I'd value developing these characters more, and in any format, but preferably film, TV, or animation.

    I was very disappointed in the PT as well, but The Clone Wars did a great job of helping me see those movies with new eyes. The ST characters all deserve more time and attention by storytellers interested in stories.

    No I don't think they do deserve that. They deserve to be replaced, overwriten, forgotten.

    Nah Rey, Finn and Poe will always be remembered from fans of the ST like the PT fans remembers it's characters and the OT fans remembers it's characters. Continue their stories in books, comics and tv shows.

    Rey has a future in tv shows both live action and animation. I think in movies she might cameo.

    I honestly don't see any of the ST characters returning in the near future. There is huge gap between the OT and ST that needs to be filled in first. I think we'll see a decade or more filling in the gaps between the OT and ST. Before we revisit the likes of Rey or Finn I believe that we need to see how the world they inhabit came to exist. We have tons of Star Wars material being developed right now and pretty much none of it is post TROS. It took decades to move past the OT. I think the same will be true for the ST.

    Kylo Ren could appear on TV as well as a kid, or more precisely Ben Solo could appear.

    If we have Leia cameo in one of the TV shows being made for example, Leia could arrive with a little kid in tow. During the Mando timeline, Ben is around 4-5 years old.

    Could actually be a fun scene to have 5 year old Ben playing with 50 year old Grogu, and they could both be using the Force to play.

    Whether or not we see the sequel trilogy's characters in other future media depends in part on how they are remembered relative to and represented in the upcoming movies and television shows. The Prequel Trilogy did not have much competing Star Wars visual media, in fact most of it was complementary. Let's say the next seasons of the Mandalorian are more well regarded than the first two. Let's say Rogue Squadron does not take place after the sequel trilogy and is such a smash hit that it gets a sequel, which is also well received. Let's say none of the upcoming movies and DisneyPlus mini-series bomb. What will fans and the public be clamering for more of in 10-20 years time?

    John Campea said a few days ago on his show that a source told him Disney has moved on and won’t be bringing back those characters again for any projects.

    John Campea has been wrong on many fronts, like his Plagueis source that Snoke was to be plus he mentioned in his mandalorian tweet that Ahsoka was baraly a cemo and fans would love Cara Dune wrong again. I personally trust a more trushworthy source. And we already got Rey and co with the holiday special. So we wil get more of them, only now they focus on the 30 year peacetime. Also Disley Ridley is with disney again, same with Oscar Isaac.
