Oscar Isaac Says Poe and Rey Will Team Up in Star Wars: Episode IX

Although Oscar Isaac hasn’t revealed too many spoilers for Star Wars: Episode IX, he did note a potential team-up with a fan favorite.

Isaac recently spoke with the Happy Sad Confused podcast (per the Bespin Bulletin Instagram page). During the conversation, the topic of being able to work with Daisy Ridley came up. Rey and Poe have had very little interaction in the saga thus far. However, Isaac explained that things are about to change.

“Well, we were apart obviously in the first one until the end and in the second we were all in our own adventures,” said Isaac. “And in this one, it’s great, because we get to have some stuff together.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens kept Rey and Poe at a distance, even though they fought for the same cause. They did get a moment together in The Last Jedi, although it was all too brief. Fortunately, it sounds like Episode IX should have them working more closely together.

Isaac also spoke about working on the film and how much of an effect it has on him.

“It was very emotional for me,” said Isaac. “It was such a huge chapter of my life for me, six years or whatever it was…it was a lot and the intensity of it…they’re like the biggest films ever. Being in the midst of all that was a lot and to have (director) J.J. (Abrams) come back and the energy of the set…and the whole thing was so distinct from the other ones in a great way.”

More information on Episode IX will likely come at Star Wars Celebration next month. Star Wars: Episode IX arrives in theaters on December 20.
