Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker continues to dominate the box office, but its director, JJ Abrams, confesses that he has no intention of going back behind the camera for other Star Wars-themed projects.
The final chapter of the Skywalker Saga, Episode IX directed by JJ Abrams, is doing well at the box office, despite the warm reception from critics (but also from some fans) and the divergent score received on Rotten Tomatoes.
But be that as it may, Abrams has re-created (with The Force Awakens) and completed (with Skywalker’s Ascent) a generational saga, and many have wondered if this will be his latest adventure on a creative level -productive in that far distant galaxy.
On the red carpet of the film, to Variety’s microphones, the director confirmed his farewell to the universe created by Lucas: “I think I must be more ‘present’ at the moment, more aware of the fact that it will all be over in the blink of a This crew and this cast was simply fantastic, the best I have had, and I feel really lucky to have had the opportunity to return. And I am sad because I can no longer work with them. “
Is it all over then? Forever? Or maybe …
” Mmh maybe … No, it’s not true. It’s over. I’m done. This time I feel it. I feel it’s the last time” he repeats, in a funny exchange with the interviewer, who remembers how JJ said something similar even after The Force Awakens.
But around the corner for Abrams, there is already an agreement with Warner Bros. and the one with Apple TV + is still valid until 2024. The time to even think of another Star Wars-themed project seems decidedly short …
