With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker bringing a conclusion to the epic story that George Lucas began in 1977, it is sensible that director J.J. Abrams would wish to meet with Lucas and speak to him earlier than getting began on the movie. In any case, Lucas is the one who had a full imaginative and prescient for his story earlier than promoting Lucasfilm to Disney.
Whereas speaking to IGN, Abrams revealed that he met with Lucas earlier than beginning work on the script of The Rise of Skywalker to debate the larger image of the story and methods to convey all of it to an finish:
“This film had a really, very particular problem which was to take eight movies and provides an ending to 3 trilogies. We had to take a look at what was the larger story. We had conversations amongst ourselves. We met with George Lucas earlier than we began writing the script. These have been issues that have been in actual, not debate, however you have a look at the form of vastness of the story and attempting to determine what’s the strategy to conclude this. Nevertheless it has to work by itself as a film. It needs to be its personal factor. It needs to be shocking and humorous, and you need to perceive it. You may’t assume anybody has sat and watched eight films earlier than this one. And but, I need a child to have the ability to watch Episodes 1-9 and see that one story.”
Abrams definitely had a troublesome job forward of him and Star Wars followers are actually hoping that he’ll be capable of pull it off. Hopefully Lucas supplied Abrams some good perception and recommendation that he truly utilized in growing the story. Clearly, Emperor Palpatine goes to be an enormous a part of closing out the saga and I can’t wait to see how precisely he’ll match into the story.
When speaking about Palpatine, Lucasfilm president, Kathleen Kennedy says that bringing the character again was at all times part of the plan.
“This has been within the blueprint for a very long time, yeah. We had not landed on precisely how we would do this, however sure, it was at all times [to be in Episode IX].”
How do you suppose Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will play out? What are you anticipating to see occur? Do you suppose Abrams will use any of Lucas’ concepts?
