When it comes to Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, it is clear that the fans of the franchise were split on their views of the movie, with some feeling it was the perfect way to set up the new trilogy, while others felt it was a poor copy of A New Hope. However, one of the things that many people did seem to enjoy in the film, was the performance of Domhnall Gleeson in his role of General Hux.
It was pretty much a given, after the way that Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, that we would see Domhnall Gleeson reprising his role as General Hux in Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi, which is exactly what is happening. However, with all the commotion that has been going on with Star Wars: Episode IX, it seems that Domhnall is not sure if he will return once again.
Gleeson was chatting to IGN about director Colin Trevorrow being removed from the movie, when he said, "I can't speak from any perspective except for the fact as somebody who likes the movies because it's not been disclosed to anybody - because obviously nobody knows what's going to happen with 'The Last Jedi' - whether I'll be involved in that film or not. So I don't think of it as somebody who's necessarily involved or not involved, that's just its own thing."
He added, "But, you know, I think it's very bad for Colin but if that was - but if the right thing to do is to part company, the most right thing to do is the same in any relationship, you know? That happens. And then with J.J., he's a great director. I think that he did a brilliant job on the first one and it makes absolute sense why after they parted company with Colin that was the place they looked and I think it's very exciting for the fans of the film that he's back."
Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi will hit the big screen on December 14 in the UK and December 15 in the US, while Star Wars: Episode IX is expected to arrive on December 20, 2019.
