Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is coming out in a few days, with fans feeling excited yet worried about the final film of this trilogy. The fact that it has also been hyped up as the final installment in the Skywalker Saga is also something many fans consider shocking so this movie will have a lot of high expectations, whether it's fair or not.
This won’t just be the last Skywalker movie though; it will also be the final Star Wars film J.J. Abrams directs. At least, that’s what he said in a recent interview with Variety, claiming that he knows for sure that this will be his last movie work for the franchise. Granted, money talks and that could always change but we’ll wait and see.
Besides, he also signed a huge deal with Warner Bros. recently, so we won’t be seeing him in the Disney/CBS/Netflix side anytime soon.
It’s clear that Abrams will have a number of projects lined up for his new exclusivity deal, with many of us hoping that the rumors of him working on a Superman project are true. We’ve wanted a good, modern Superman movie for the longest time and Man of Steel might not have been what fans wanted, though it does have its fair share of defenders.
He probably also has a number of original projects, which is shocking since we’re basically in the nostalgia generation right now. Maybe one of these original ideas ends up being some kind of franchise but we’ll have to wait and see.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker comes out this Friday, on December 20.
