Lucasfilm Has Removed Matt Smith From the Cast List of STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

The mystery surrounding Matt Smith’s character in Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker continues as Lucasfilm removes his name from the cast list on the official website. His name was included on the list, but now it’s not.

Smith was officially confirmed to be in the film, he was cast in the film, then he suspiciously denied that he was in it. Then there was a wild rumor regarding who he was playing in the film. And now his name has been removed from the cast list.

Is Lucasfilm trying to hide his involvement? Or was he involved, and then when the information about his character leaked, they cut his role and changed the film up so he’s not included? It’s interesting to see how Smith is being treated in this film, and I wonder what the story is behind his involvement.

The big question is, will we actually see Smith show up in the film or was he cut out? What do you think is going on with Matt Smith’s character?

As for as the rumored information regarding his character goes…


Smith was said to be playing a reincarnated version of Emperor Palpatine. There are a lot more spoiler-filled details regarding this rumor that you can read about here.

If this rumor turned out to be true it would be a huge blow to a major twist in the story. But would J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm go to the great lengths it would take to change all of this to make sure something different happens in the film?

I guess we’ll find out when the movie is released on December 20th.
