We’re just over a month from the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and with it, we’re sure that audiences are thrilled to get an answer to every single one of their questions, right? Star Wars: The Force Awakens left us with a lot of unanswered questions, so it’s only inevitable that this next film will give us all the answers.

Obviously, I’m setting you up for disappointment, based on the title of this article. No, we won’t be getting all the answers, as Kathleen Kennedy revealed in an extended interview with The Star Wars Show.

“I think he’s done an exceptional job of taking these new characters and some of the legacy characters and moving us to this next place. He doesn’t answer all the questions, I will say that up front. But there are certain questions he does answer in a really wonderfully provocative way, and I think there’ll be some surprises that people aren’t expecting.”

This is definitely a good thing. It’s an important thing for any storyteller not to answer all the questions by the end of a non-final installment of a franchise. While it could make for a satisfying watch, it can also lead to the sequel feeling tacked on and unnecessary.

For a trilogy, answering every one of our questions would be the kiss of death for Star Wars: Episode 9. What would be the point of us seeing the film if we had no unanswered questions?

Additionally, this is comforting in that it seems to imply that director Rian Johnson is allowing the story to unravel naturally, which is something we definitely want.

    Rey is… YODA’S GRANDDAUGHTER! Okay, that would REALLY be a surprise!

    Well, there are certain things I don’t care if they get answered: does the First Order lose in this episode? Where does Kylo Ren fall? I do think the question of where Rey came from is kind of a distraction at this point to the franchise though. Answer it, get it out of the way, and let us move on with the story.

      yes, but I also think it’s a bait and switch in that it’s still interesting enough to eventually have Rey go “I need to move foward.” and hopefully the fans will fallow and not fall into the trap of knowing Vader’s origin.

    so my question for 35 years, did the Ewoks eat the stormtroopers after playing their helmets in the “Nub Nub” song will never be answered https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/320643a323614bbf4199ba57215b5aae61b411821889fde416723b9b142ebf66.jpg ?
