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.
