Naomi Ackie Hopes for ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Series

Naomi Ackie recently spoke to Digital Spy about her acting career, her inspirations, and most importantly, her hopes for Jannah, the ex-Stormtrooper who helps the gang fight in the battle of Exegol.

“Jannah was a completely new character and I like the idea that the Star Wars universe is expanding,” Ackie tells DS. “I think Jannah could get a spin-off. She has a really rich backstory that J.J. [Abrams] told me about, and a future that we still don’t know about.”

Now, this isn’t a confirmation of any sort, merely Ackie’s expressed interest. She makes a point about the expanding universe. There are so many mediums through which the Star Wars story is told – comics, movies, shows, books – that giving Jannah some room to grow and develop is a possibility. After all, there were heavy implications that she’s the daughter of Lando. 

But that isn’t the most fascinating thing about her. A comic series, devoted to following her band of ex-Stormtroopers on their journey from the First Order to open resistance? That would be fascinating! 

Let’s hope we get to see more of Jannah, and Noami Ackie, in the future.
