In cinemas since December 18, 2019, 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' is the final episode of the sequel trilogy that J. J. Abrams brought 'The Force Awakens' to cinemas in 2015.
Even those who have no idea about the 'Star Wars' universe know how important the films are for their fans. After all, George Lucas created a hype with the original trilogy in the late 70s/early 80s that never died down.
'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' is the ninth installment in the franchise, so it's been a long time to form an opinion about the 'Star Wars' universe.
In an interview with the 'Musikexpress', J. J. Abrams on whether he had the opinion of the masses in mind as he brought the Star Saga to a close.
You have to find balance
"Every single opinion must and should count. That applies to the viewers, but also to those who tell such a story," mused the filmmaker, who helmed Episode VIII, 'The Last Jedi', his had left to colleagues Rian Johnson. "It's always a balancing act to acknowledge and respect criticism of all kinds. And I always take them a little more seriously than compliments, because of course I always try to do my job even better next time."
The opinion of others shouldn't take up too much space, Abrams added: "The greatest danger is trying to please everyone. Because then you might lose sight of the path that you are actually taking thinks he's the right one."
Whether J. J. Abrams managed this balancing act? You can see that in the cinema these days!
