Padme Amidala was an integral a part of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, not simply as Anakin’s love curiosity and catalyst in his fall to the darkish aspect, however a compelling character who modified the panorama of the warfare by way of her time as a senator of the Galactic Republic.
George Lucas launched Padme in The Phantom Menace because the Queen of Naboo, however the character would go on to make an look in virtually each Star Wars mission from the times of the Clone Wars and usually the Prequels period. Whereas the trilogy primarily tells her story by way of Anakin Skywalker and his transformation to Darth Vader, different tales, together with The Clone Wars sequence, have completed rather a lot to develop the Nabooain Senator as an unbiased and important character.
Sadly, Natalie Portman’s time in Star Wars was short-lived and she or he by no means reprised her function after Revenge of the Sith. Although it seems as if the actress nonetheless remembers Padme in a superb mild.
“It’s so enjoyable to be a part of one thing that youngsters relate to a lot. I haven’t proven my youngsters the films but — I feel it’s so bizarre for them to think about me as something apart from their mother. They’ve seen the latest Star Wars motion pictures that I’m not in — my son has, my daughter, is just too younger. It feels actually fortunate to be a part of one thing that’s each little one’s imaginary world. It’s very thrilling to have the ability to impress my youngsters a bit bit,” She defined in a latest interview with Yahoo!
Whereas it’s unlikely that the Thor: Love and Thunder star will ever reprise her function in future initiatives, we might but see Padme return by way of different mediums. In truth, it was solely lately that the character popped up once more in Marvel’s Darth Vader comedian sequence, however we quickly discovered it was Sabe, her loyal handmaiden and physique double from Episode I.
At any price, it’s attention-grabbing that how Portman feels about her involvement with Star Wars really mirrors Lucas’ intention for the Prequel Trilogy; to make the films in a means that might resonate extra with kids, therefore the inclusion of an adolescent Anakin and the notorious Jar Jar Binks, to not point out the podracing match on Tatooine.
