Christian Bale has Star Wars ambitions as an actor and as far as I am concerned that’s good news for the franchise. So take note Kathy (Kennedy) because Bale would be fantastic to have in Star Wars for some of the future content being devised.
Bale says when he was younger he’d have been happy to play some random Stormtrooper just to be in Star Wars. However he does wonder if there’s something even better out there? Plus, Bale already knows Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. So surely there has to be a will to make this happen eventually?
Bale mentioned these Star Wars ambitions in a recent interview with THR.
“All I ever wanted in Star Wars was to be in a Star Wars outfit and hit my head on a door or something as I walked through. The real nerds who watched Star Wars way too many times always knew about that one scene where the Stormtrooper hits his head on the door as he comes through. I wanted to be that guy. That was it. But look, if I’m fortunate enough to be more than that, oh man, yeah. What a delight that would be. I’ve still got the figures from when I was little. I also know Kathy Kennedy very well because she was working with Spielberg when I did Empire of the Sun, and now, she runs the Star Wars universe.”
Known Lucasfilm, Bale will get a cameo appearance in an episode of The Book of Boba Fett or something else wasteful. I just don’t trust the decision making process at Lucasfim, so many projects that never happened, or had issues. Plus, for me, if you bring Bale into Star Wars, it’s in a movie, not a Disney+ show.
Taika Waititi, Kevin Feige, also take note seen as for it looks like these two will make the next two Star Wars movies respectively.
