Star Wars: J.J. Abrams And Rise Of Skywalker Co-Writer, Chris Terrio, Met With George Lucas

In a week’s time, Star Wars will end. Ok, that isn’t completely true, but the franchise will end as we know it. The men behind the pen, JJ Abrams and Chris Terrio, who co-wrote, went to Star Wars creator George Lucas to try and get at the root of the franchise, and get inside Lucas’ head back when he wrote A New Hope.

Terrio spoke about the meetings with George Lucas during an interview with Rolling Stone and you can check out what he to say below.

“I did. And it’s not as though we had a conference on specific story points. It’s more about really listening to George. It was almost a philosophical discussion about the nature of the Jedi and the nature of the Force, and about what his intentions were when he was originally writing the first episode. It was like sitting down with a with some grandmaster and just listening to his wisdom.”

Terrio further elaborates.

“I don’t even know if George knows to what extent we wrote down and conferred about and really tried to understand the spirit of what he said. As far as the specific story goes, who knows if George would agree with it, but I hope that philosophically he’ll feel we understood the spirit of what he was doing.”

It seems somewhat insulting to come back to Lucas for advice after rejecting his ideas for a sequel trilogy, ideas that he’s likely toyed with for decades, but maybe that’s just me.

I think we all know that both praise and ridicule for The Rise of Skywalker stand at the ready. Personally, I am excited for the memes that will be born of the film. I’m sure even if I don’t like the film as a whole there will be some wonderful shots and awesome sequences to enjoy. Again, this is it. With Star Wars, Disney is like the most accurate Stormtrooper, sometimes they occasionally hit their mark, but most of the time, they miss the target.

I will never understand why Lucas didn’t bargain more. Sure, Disney didn’t need Star Wars, but as far as film franchises go, this is THE one. The rights to Star Wars? Surely another studio would have been happy to accommodate Lucas’ story, and then take complete control after that. How Disney got their way I may never fully understand, all I know is what the mouse wants, the mouse gets.

Cinema’s most prized, prize, and Lucas should have negotiated to finish his saga, his way. If Disney refused, well, I’m sure another studio would have accommodated ol’ Georgie Boy and let him finish his story. If I were Lucas, I would have taken my ball and went home, or went elsewhere.

Big Papa Palpatine returns this Friday to probably to let Rey defeat him. What Rey doesn’t know is her upcoming victory is just another part of the Emperor’s grand plan, he will be back, Palp always comes back.
