Ever since JJ Abrams joined in the Star Wars franchise to direct the films, fans have always had mixed opinions about the results. Only last week Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker released to a worldwide audience. While the film is definitely a commercial success and is being praised for its visual spectacle, it received a lot of mixed reviews.
When asked about his role in the future of Star Wars films the filmmaker said, "I mean, it’s funny, I think I need to be more present at the moment because the truth is it’ll be over in a flash. This crew and this cast have been the most amazing I’ve ever known, so I feel very lucky to have gotten to come back. And sad that I won’t be working with them again."
Abrams earlier wanted to exit the franchise after directing Episode VII: The Force Awakens. But when Disney offered him the position to direct Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, he joined in. For Abrams, the latest film was his touch of everything that he ever wanted to bring to the franchise as a whole. The filmmaker said firmly that this is definitely the final time that he is in the director's chair for a Star Wars film.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Oscar Issac, Adam Driver, and John Boyega and is currently in theatres.
