Unique: The Rise of Skywalker’s Dominic Monaghan feedback on whether or not he can be prepared to return as Beaumont Kin for future Star Wars tasks.
The Rise of Skywalker’s Dominic Monaghan addresses whether or not he can be prepared to return for future installments of the Star Wars franchise. Monaghan is maybe finest identified 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 revealed as a part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker multimedia mission. Whereas Beaumont’s function in The Rise of Skywalker was comparatively minor, the character would later seem in a a lot higher capability within the Star Wars novel Shadow of the Sith by Adam Christopher. Set previous to the occasions of The Drive Awakens, Beaumont is launched as an instructional and an archaeologist previous to his becoming a member of the Resistance.
Display screen 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 under:
I did hear this. I am gonna need to learn this e-book. A couple of folks have instructed me on Instagram that Beaumont, my character, options within the e-book comparatively considerably; that he does a number 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 obtained a double-page unfold. They sort of prolonged on his earlier life: he had an advanced relationship together with his dad and mom, they usually did not need him to enter the Resistance. They sort of rejected him when he did, after which he grew to become a excessive flyer within the college; graduated with honors and have become a very clever codebreaker.
I believe there’s loads to that character. I like that universe. Clearly, I’d 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 affect on the occasions of the movie. Because the Star Wars franchise continues to evolve, nonetheless, his character has an excellent 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 sooner or later and deal with his character with the respect he deserves.
In fact, 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 go away 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 in the course of 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 mission set nearer to the occasions of the sequels. Within the meantime, followers might want to hold their fingers crossed that The Rise of Skywalker received’t be the final they see of Beaumont Kin.
