Now that we’ve gotten one other glimpse of how the Skywalker saga will come to an finish with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, followers are speculating wildly about how the story will unfold, particularly with that shot of Rey carrying a Sith gown and wielding a modified, double-bladed purple lightsaber. Past that, a lot of the hypothesis has been concerning how J.J. Abrams will cope with the story developments from Star Wars: The Final Jedi. And for everybody who thought that Abrams needed to repair or undo what Rian Johnson did along with his Star Wars sequel in an effort to make the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ending work, assume once more.
In a purple carpet interview from The D23 Expo final weekend, J.J. Abrams mentioned, regardless of what some followers assume, The Final Jedi didn’t change something in regards to the trajectory of the story that the director envisioned when he began engaged on Star Wars: The Power Awakens. Abrams informed The Related Press (through ET Canada):
“The story that we’re telling, the story that we began to conceive after we did ‘The Power Awakens,’ was allowed to proceed. Episode VIII didn’t actually derail something that we have been serious about.”
Initially, which may not look like it tells us a lot about how Abrams is wrapping up this new Star Wars trilogy and your entire Skywalker saga, nevertheless it says greater than you assume. That signifies that what Rian Johnson revealed about Rey’s dad and mom, by way of Kylo Ren (albeit an untrustworthy supply) didn’t change something about what Abrams had in thoughts for Rey’s origins.
It appears like the thought of Rey’s dad and mom being nobodies received’t be retconned or something like that. After all, that doesn’t imply Rey’s lineage isn’t tied to a different character by different means, whether or not it’s grandparents, or another acquainted connection. In any case, Abrams mentioned at Star Wars Celebration that “there’s extra to the story than you’ve seen.”
Moreover, this additionally signifies that the dying of Supreme Chief Snoke didn’t create any hurdles for J.J. Abrams to beat both. In truth, what Abrams says right here would appear to point that the plan was all the time to carry Emperor Palpatine again in some unspecified time in the future. However the query is what has Emperor Palpatine been doing this entire time? Why is he solely simply now resurfacing on this closing third chapter? Has his presence been a part of this new trilogy this entire time and we simply didn’t realize it?
There’s an opportunity J.J. Abrams is simply enjoying good within the press and doesn’t need to name out any story threads he needed to skew in an effort to end the story the best way that he initially imagined. In any case, you don’t need to throw anybody underneath the bus and create dangerous blood in case you don’t should. However perhaps the occasions of The Final Jedi pushed Rey and Kylo Ren in a route that wasn’t deliberate however not a lot that it wreaked havoc on the place Abrams needed these arcs to finish up.
It’s onerous to inform how this can all play out, particularly close to the top, however Daisy Ridley did point out to MTV that she thinks the ending of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker can be much less controversial than the ending of Sport of Thrones. Ridley hasn’t really seen the top of Sport of Thrones but, however she’s probably basing that off all the excitement after the present’s finale. After all, with Star Wars followers, you by no means know what’s going to set them off, so we’ll should take inventory after the film arrives in theaters later this yr on December 20, 2019.
