Forest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera is set to play an even bigger role in future Star Wars movies, according to Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
She explained to Empire magazine: “With Saw Gerrera, we just became very intrigued with him as a character and how he fits inside this story….
“To be honest, we originally thought we were going to develop Saw into something much larger, but we couldn’t accommodate it. So he is not in the movie as much as we would like to have him in the movie, which creates the opportunity to explore his character even further in our future development.”
Forest, 55, has suggested he would relish the chance to reprise the role in the coming years.
The Oscar-winning actor explained: “I’m curious about what else they’re about to do. Because they seem to really like the character, which is great!”
