Properly-known as a grasp of posing compelling cinematic questions, J.J. Abrams is lastly prepared to present some solutions on this month’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
“We went into this film very a lot within the mindset that this must be conclusive,” he says in a brand new interview. “It has to. You need to get some solutions. You need to be taught some issues.” Evidently, a few of these “issues” are the backstories of the movie’s predominant characters, together with former Stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega) and hotshot pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). Whereas the fandom’s consideration has been on Rey (Daisy Ridley) and questioning who her dad and mom are, Abrams and co-writer Chris Terrio are additionally taking the time to fill in some gaps for the remainder of the primary solid members as properly.

“[Finn’s history] is a part of the story of this one. And it was alluded to in Episode VII, however there’s a bit extra mild shed on that on this one…I might say that every of the characters get extra mild shed on their histories. I’m not saying we get full, exhaustive downloads on all of their childhoods and each main step that bought them to the place they’re. However there are plenty of questions on Finn’s previous, about Poe’s previous, clearly Rey and Kylo, after which a number of the new characters we meet.”
And as his quote on the prime of this web page signifies, the time for questions is over. I’m certain not each single factor might be tied up with a bow, but it surely sounds just like the writers went to nice lengths to attempt to illuminate as a lot as potential. That’s a tricky activity, particularly with this many open questions floating round.
“Endings are very troublesome as a result of they should take every thing that’s come earlier than, on this case eight movies prior, and draw it to a detailed. So I wished to verify along with the central story, the primary character or characters, I wished to just remember to felt that if you had been accomplished with this movie, you felt such as you had some extra perception into all of them. That was actually vital to us.”
Exploring Finn and Poe’s Pasts Might Result in the Most Subversive Resolution in Star Wars Historical past
Right here’s hoping the large reveal about Finn and Poe’s pasts is that the 2 of them had been secretly in a contented, long-term romantic relationship for years earlier than they had been each struck by a case of amnesia and flung to separate corners of the galaxy, solely to lastly notice now that their pleasant connection is a lot greater than they thought. (And also you thought The Final Jedi was subversive!)
