Warning: Potential spoilers for “The Rise of Skywalker.”

“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” has been billed as the final film in the Skywalker saga. It’s the end of an area. The end of the Skywalker family’s run in films.

But it may not be the end of the Skywalkers, according to Kathleen Kennedy.

What’s going on: Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy spoke at the red carpet premiere for “The Rise of Skywalker, and said the Skywalkers may not be done after all. The Force-sensitive family could easily make a return, according to Comicbook.com.

  • Kennedy: “I have to say it’s a mixture of emotions, I have to say because we’ve had such an incredible time. It’s just flown by these five years and doing these three movies and to realize that we’re completing the saga and we’re not finishing the Skywalkers necessarily, they could always in one way or another reappear but for right now it is bringing it to a close.”

What’s interesting: There aren’t any Skywalkers left that we know of. Luke Skywalker died and will reportedly become a Force ghost. Kylo Ren is actually named Ben Solo, which means he’s technically not a Skywalker. Leia Organa is ... Leia Organa ... and not a Skywalker. So does this mean something is going to happen in “Rise of Skywalker” this week?

More details: Kennedy talked about the future of the series with The Los Angeles Times.

  • “Obviously, that’s what we’ve been spending so much time talking about, and it’s a really important transition for ‘Star Wars.’ What we’ve been focused on these last five or six years is finishing that family saga around the Skywalkers. Now is the time to start thinking about how to segue into something new and different.”
  • “We’re literally making this up from whole cloth and bringing in filmmakers to find what these stories might be. It can take a while before you find what direction you might want to go. We need the time to do that.”
  • “I think it gives us a more open-ended view of storytelling and doesn’t lock us into this three-act structure. We’re not going to have some finite number and fit it into a box. We’re really going to let the story dictate that.”
