It’s not easy to write a good movie, and what many consider to be the most important part of the story, the ending, is extremely difficult to nail down. Now, imagine it’s not just a movie, it’s a film that is the end of a trilogy, and not just the end of a trilogy, it’s a film that has to wrap up one of, if not the most beloved franchise in cinema history.
Such is the task that stands before director and co-writer J.J. Abrams with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Dr. Lensflare himself recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the difficulty of bringing an end to both the trilogy and the Skywalker saga. You can check out what he had to say below.
“Endings are the thing that scare me the most. This is about bringing this thing to a close in a way that is emotional and meaningful and also satisfying in terms of actually answering [as many] questions as possible. So if years from now, someone’s watching these movies, all nine of them, they’re watching a story that is as cohesive as possible.”
One of Abrams’ challenges I didn’t mention above is mending what some may call a broken fanbase after the, umm film, that Rian Johnson put forth in 2017 which more or less divided Star Wars fans in a love it-hate it sort of way. As if the challenges that lay before J.J. aren’t enough to deal with, we’ll just go ahead and throw that issue on the top of the pile.
