Unique: The Rise of Skywalker’s Dominic Monaghan feedback on whether or not he can be keen to return as Beaumont Kin for future Star Wars initiatives.
The Rise of Skywalker’s Dominic Monaghan addresses whether or not he can be keen to return for future installments of the Star Wars franchise. Monaghan is probably greatest recognized for his function as Meriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy. He would go on to play the down-on-his-luck musician Charlie Tempo in J.J. Abrams’ hit tv sequence Misplaced, and in 2018 he reunited with Abrams to movie The Rise of Skywalker, the ultimate movie in Disney’s sequel trilogy.
Monaghan’s character, Beaumont Kin, is a member of the Resistance Military and served as a captain within the intelligence division. Previous to his look in The Rise of Skywalker, his character was first launched within the 2019 comedian The Ghosts of Kashyyyk: Half I, which was printed as a part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker multimedia undertaking. Whereas Beaumont’s function in The Rise of Skywalker was comparatively minor, the character would later seem in a a lot larger capability within the Star Wars novel Shadow of the Sith by Adam Christopher. Set previous to the occasions of The Pressure Awakens, Beaumont is launched as an educational and an archaeologist previous to his becoming a member of the Resistance.
Display Rant caught up with Monaghan throughout San Diego Comedian-Con and spoke to him about his Star Wars function, asking if he was aware of Beaumont’s presence within the new novel. Admitting that he’s nonetheless but to learn the e-book, he expresses his enthusiasm for the character and suggests he “would like to play Beaumont once more.” Take a look at his full feedback beneath:
I did hear this. I am gonna must learn this e-book. A number of individuals have instructed me on Instagram that Beaumont, my character, options within the e-book comparatively considerably; that he does a couple of issues and has a comparatively essential function in it.
I used to be actually tickled by the truth that the Star Wars encyclopedia got here out after The Rise of Skywalker, and my character received a double-page unfold. They type of prolonged on his earlier life: he had an advanced relationship together with his mother and father, they usually did not need him to enter the Resistance. They type of rejected him when he did, after which he turned a excessive flyer within the college; graduated with honors and have become a extremely clever codebreaker.
I believe there’s quite a bit to that character. I like that universe. Clearly, I might like to play Beaumont once more.
Most followers would agree that regardless of the significance positioned on Monaghan’s character within the promotional leadup to the Rise of Skywalker’s launch, his character was not explored in any nice depth and in the end had little influence on the occasions of the movie. Because the Star Wars franchise continues to evolve, nonetheless, his character has an awesome deal extra potential to be seen than was ever realized on movie. With a plethora of latest Star Wars content material deliberate, maybe Lucasfilm will determine to convey Monaghan again in some unspecified time in the future and deal with his character with the respect he deserves.
After all, one of many main hurdles Monaghan will face in returning to Star Wars is the franchise’s present emphasis on different time intervals. Seemingly content material to depart the sequel timeline alone, a lot of Lucasfilm’s present efforts have all been targeted in both the time between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope (the timeline throughout which Obi-Wan Kenobi and Andor are set) or throughout the period of The Mandalorian (5 years after Return of the Jedi). Beaumont’s character would both be too younger or not born but in these time intervals, and would require a undertaking set nearer to the occasions of the sequels. Within the meantime, followers might want to preserve their fingers crossed that The Rise of Skywalker received’t be the final they see of Beaumont Kin.
