Rian Johnson Shares His Thoughts on The Rise Of Skywalker

Rian Johnson has finally shared his thoughts on the final part of the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Speaking at the Oscars, Johnson told MTV: “I had a blast, man. It made me so proud. And seeing the heart and soul that J.J. put into it, seeing my friends who were in the movie bring the whole thing to a conclusion… Yeah, for me as a Star Wars fan it was a really special experience.” Of course, it seems unlikely that Johnson would publicly bash a franchise he’s so invested in – and still theoretically working in, with his proposed spin-off trilogy – but it’s nice to see him come out in support of the film and his fellow filmmaker amid considerable divisiveness.
