"Episode VIII didn't really derail anything that we were thinking about".
Abrams nods towards the suggestion that he played it safe in Star Wars:The Force Awakens, by sticking to what he thought a Star Wars movie should be. In fact, it looks like if anything, The Last Jedi has given JJ Abrams the confidence and motivation to step out of his comfort zone, experiment and push the boundaries even further. Speaking to our sister publication Total Film for their latest issue, Abrams compared working on The Rise of Skywalker to Episode VII, The Force Awakens, which reached cinemas four years ago.
Johnson added, "And I really feel like individuals care deeply about Star Wars, and each single individual has a barely completely different model of what they assume Star Wars is".
"On this one, I let myself be, at least in the way I was approaching the thing, freer", Abrams told Total Film. It was about finding a visual language, like shooting on locations and doing practical things as much as possible. "And we continue that in Episode IX, but I also found myself doing things that I'm not sure I would have been as daring to do on Episode VII".
"Rian helped remind me that that's why we're on these movies - not to just do something that you've seen before", Abrams continued.
"I won't say that I felt constrained or limited on 7, but I found myself wanting to do something that felt more consistent with the original trilogy than not", Abrams concluded. "And on IX, I found myself feeling like I'm just gonna go for it a bit more".
This may rub some fans the wrong way, understandably so.
Though the majority of critics appreciated it - a B-grade was the general consensus - The Last Jedi was arguably the most divisive Star Wars movie ever among fans, many objecting to, well, much of the movie, from the rambling and needless mission by Finn and Rose to the casino planet, to the subversion of the whole "hyperspace" lore by Laura Dern's Vice Admiral Holdo. Not only that, Johnson also took the most popular Jedi in all of Star Wars, Luke Skywalker and turned him into a highly vulnerable, highly flawed human being with profound regrets.
