If you know anything about “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” it’s that the movie from director J.J. Abrams marks the official conclusion of the three-trilogy Skywalker Saga. But that does not necessarily mean that the characters created for the final trilogy — especially Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) — couldn’t have their stories told in future “Star Wars” projects.

That is, if the actors are willing to sign up for them.

Boyega is of course referring to the slate of “Star Wars” TV series set for Disney’s streaming service. While Disney Plus hasn’t released viewership numbers for the currently-streaming “The Mandalorian,” you’d have to be in a coma to miss the widespread obsession with the show’s breakout character of Baby Yoda. And there is significant fan enthusiasm for the spin-off series planned for Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi, and for “Rogue One” character Cassian Andor (Diego Luna).

Boyega, however, is not keen to join their ranks.
