New Star Wars: Folks, it’s happening. In less than a month, you’ll be able to watch Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker and all questions will be answered. Will J.J. Abrams end the series with a bang? Will he go risky like The Last Jedi or play it safe like The Force Awakens? Either way the discourse will be bonkers.
Because after a mixed reception to The Last Jedi and Solo’s box office flop, there’s a lot at stake here. Abrams also has the challenge of keeping Leia Organa a central character despite the death of actress Carrie Fisher in 2016. But almost everyone involved believes they’ve nailed that.
