Interestingly, Christensen expressed his willingness to reprise his role as the Dark Lord of the Sith in an interview with Entertainment Weekly:

I would love to get to do more, and I’d love to get to continue with Star Wars, and we’ll see. I don’t know what the future holds, and if such an opportunity presents itself, I’ll be there with a big smile on my face.
