Is it controversial to say that Star Wars: The Last Jedi left fans a little…divided (To answer my own question…no it’s not)? I may think of it as one of the best Star Wars films to date but know for a fact that many of you readers found the film to be an insult to the Star Wars mythos. Whether I like it or not, there seems to be a good deal of pressure on whatever comes next, especially after Solo: A Star Wars Story flopped at the box office.
It’s with this in mind that we come to some choice words from Oscar Isaac, the man who plays Poe Dameron in the sequel trilogy of films. After all I’ve talked about, you’d think there’d be a little bit of pressure to make this next film amazing, right? Not necessarily. According to Isaac, shooting on Star Wars: Episode IX seems like it’s the most fun yet, and he even stated they are allowing more improv on set.
“The way they’ve been shooting it right now is looser than it’s been for the last two times. It does feel like a relief to get on set and feel like, ‘Oh, we can try things.’ It’s a testament to J.J. coming back and feeling confident. There’s less pressure for it to be right. We just want to make a good movie and have a really good time while doing it. Often, you do feel like you’ve got to find your way to make something more alive, but this time, it’s been the opposite. There’s no need to smuggle anything in there.”
So what does this mean for fans like you? Should you be worried that they’re really not getting super serious about what’s to come or that they seem oblivious to what works and what doesn’t for fans? Or should you be happy that the material is so good that they feel confident enough to have a more lighthearted shoot?
That’s a good question, and I wish I could answer it, but at the end of the day, we really don’t know what they have in store for us for this final installment in the trilogy. We’ll have to wait and see.
