Ian McDiarmid Reacts To Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Trailer

Ian McDiarmid Reacts To Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Trailer

It's scheduled to run for an hour total, so the title and trailer-if they are coming-should be debuting soon.

"Strangely, we were sort of relentless and nearly unbearably disciplined about the story and forcing ourselves to question and answer some fundamental things that at the beginning, I absolutely had no clue how we would begin to address". This was obviously a reference to what Luke Skywalker pulled off in 2017's The Last Jedi.

IX will feature a live Princess Leia, played by Carrie Fisher, even though she died in 2016, director JJ Abrams shared on Friday.

"In addition to being the end of three trilogies, it also has to work has its own movie", Abrams added, saying that it's also about "the new generation". "What you're going to end up seeing you're going to be happy with". "We are looking at the next saga", she told The Hollywood Reporter.

With that, the director spoke about the film's production. We'll just have to wait until December to see. Abrams reiterated that they simply couldn't "fill the void...she was glorious and amazing" when it came to her presence in the films. The Star Wars family has denied this in the past, and in The Last Jedi, Kylo cruelly showed Rey that her parents were just regular people who abandoned her. "The insane this is, emotionally, every day it hits me every day she's here but it's surreal because we're working with her still". "Leia lives in this film in a way that is kind of mind-blowing to me".

Director J.J. Abrams, speaking alongside numerous film's stars, said the movie takes place some time after the events of 2017 film "The Last Jedi". "Some time has passed", he explained. "This is an adventure that the group goes on together". You don't recast that part, and you don't have her disappear. There's a lot of action, Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) appearing to drive the Millennium Falcon and what looks like the remnants of the Death Star from Return of the Jedi decaying in an ocean. We could get another Forceback scene, which might be what is shown in the new trailer.

It should also be noted that Colbert took the questioning to the next level, by asking Ackie point blank about that theory!
