The Final Jedi actor who portrayed Temiri Blagg, aka “Broom Boy,” believes there is a future within the Star Wars franchise for the character as a Jedi. Rian Johnson’s second installment within the sequel trilogy is by far probably the most divisive out of the bunch, with “Broom Boy” being a component that many followers weren’t into. Regardless of the case could also be, the character supplied hope to the remainder of the galaxy and left the door open for some future storytelling which might not must be informed via the Skywalker Saga.
In a brand new interview, 12-year outdated Temirlan Blaev talked about his “Broom Boy” character and his reveal in The Final Jedi. Seeing the character on the massive display screen actually raised plenty of questions amongst Star Wars followers, which the younger actor understands. Blaev had this to say about his character’s Drive skills.
“I feel it was surprising, however everybody’s response, it simply stated, ‘Who is that this boy? What might this imply? Is he the subsequent Jedi? Who’s he?’ I feel that introduced plenty of speak up about who my character actually was. After I learn the script, I type of understood that he was Drive-sensitive. I assumed to myself that would imply one thing about my character.”
Lucasfilm is transferring away from the Skywalker Saga and might be specializing in new characters for the longer term on the massive display screen. Broom Boy matches that class, however might we see extra of him sooner or later? “Lots of people have been asking me [about returning], and I stated, ‘We’ll have to attend and see if I get known as again,'” Temirlan Blaev stated. On whether or not or not he would possibly return to the Star Wars franchise, Blaev states, “There could possibly be an opportunity to truly proceed the story of the character. I feel it might occur. I might be up for it.”
The Rise of Skywalker would have been an attention-grabbing place to convey “Broom Boy” again, however J.J. Abrams already had sufficient on his plate by that time. Plus, Abrams and the studio look like they wished to get as distant from The Final Jedi as potential when bringing the most recent trilogy to an finish. Even Temirlan Blaev thought there might have been room for him within the ultimate installment. He explains.
“I wasn’t certain, as a result of it might have been, sure, he [J.J. Abrams] would have continued my story, how Rey would have educated me or helped me in a roundabout way. However on the similar time, am I actually that vital? Am I somebody huge or am I actually only a boy, a fortunate boy in a galaxy far, distant?”
In the long run, it is unclear whether or not or not we’ll ever see “Broom Boy” ever once more. As time goes on, he’ll be Broom Man, so we would have to see some recasting if Lucasfilm intends on happening that rabbit gap. Something is feasible within the Star Wars galaxy, so we’ll actually simply have to attend and see what occurs within the coming months and years.
