J.J. Abrams Explains Why He Chose “The Rise of Skywalker” As Title For ‘Episode IX’

Published

on

Star Wars: Episode IX’ Director J.J. Abrams has been tight lipped about the upcoming conclusion to the “Skywalker saga.” After the release of the first teaser trailer, fans have been begun speculation as to what we can expect from the final installment. Abrams, without giving too much away, sat down and tried to explain his decision for going with the title, “THE RISE OF SKYWALKER”

****POTENTIAL SPOILERS****

 

 

 

 

“The title feels like it’s the right title for this movie, and I know that it’s provocative and asks a bunch of questions. But I think when you see the movie, you’ll see how it’s intended, what it means. But in the flow of titles, this movie had a very weird responsibility. It had to be the end of not just three movies, but nine movies, and the idea of having to incorporate the stories that have come before strangely is the story of the movie. Which is to say it’s the characters in the film inheriting everything that’s come before in previous generations, whether it’s sins of the father, whether it’s the wisdom that they’ve acquired. And the question is this new generation, are they up to the task, can they stand up to what they have to? And so in a way, I feel like we coming into this movie have inherited a lot, and the question is can we do it? And that question we ask ourselves every day.”

It sounds all but confirmed that ‘Episode IX‘ will be a movie about tying up loose ends. And quite possibly straightening out continuity from ‘The Last Jedi.’

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters December 20, 2019. Starring: Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac.

 “You never know what surprises the future might hold”

It would appear that we won’t be seeing Tom Holland’s Spider-Man grace the screen with the likes of Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson, in the Andy Serkis directed ‘Venom 2.’ Or will we. Reports are scarce as to the details of the agreement reached between Marvel/Disney and Sony.  But, inside sources reveal that Marvel will take home 25% from future Spider-Man films.

The negotiations also landed on a release date for a third Spider-Man film. We are expected to see Holland return to action, July 16, 2021. Holland recently took to social media, to express his excitement about returning to the MCU:

Amy Pascal will produce the upcoming films through her production company, Pascal Pictures as she has on the first two Holland/Spidey films. Pascal weighed in on the news:

“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it,” Feige said in a statement. “Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”

“This is terrific,” she said. “Peter Parker’s story took a dramatic turn in ‘Far From Home’ and I could not be happier we will all be working together as we see where his journey goes.”

We are excited about the projects Kathy and the Lucasfilm team are working on, not only in terms of Star Wars but also Indiana Jones and reaching into other parts of the company including Children of Blood and Bone with Emma Watts and Fox. With the close of the Skywalker Saga, Kathy is pursuing a new era in Star Wars storytelling, and knowing what a die-hard fan Kevin is, it made sense for these two extraordinary producers to work on a Star Wars film together.
