Norman Reeduses has been a fan of the latest Star Wars film since it was released last December.
But the actor is now keen to bring the new installment to the UK to promote it to fans who have not seen the original Star Wars films.
“We’ve seen it, but it’s not a big part of our lives.
We don’t do it as a fan, it’s a part of it,” he said on a recent interview with the Daily Telegraph.”
I think people need to be exposed to it, and we’re trying to do that now through the film, and I think people are really, really excited.”
Reedus, who plays the villainous General Leia Organa on the film is set to play a key role in the next Star Wars instalment, Episode VIII.
The actor, who has also previously voiced both the bounty hunter Han Solo and the Emperor in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens films, was speaking at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London this week.
“It’s a bit of a long shot but we’ve been talking about this for a long time,” he added.
“And we’re getting there.
And we think it’s going to be fantastic.”
Reeves is well-known for his role as Luke Skywalker on the popular series The Clone Wars, and he has played a number of roles in other Star Wars movies.
He also starred as the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi in the 2016 film Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Unleashed, which grossed over $3.5bn worldwide, and in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which won him a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor.
