The Next ‘Star Wars’ director Rian Johnson has talked what we can expect from his work in the next movie.
Even though he cannot give away too much, the director of the new Star Wars film has given us some insight into what we can expect in the new movie, which releases on December 15th 2017.
“I want it to be a blast and to be funny and to be a ride the way ‘The Force Awakens’ and the original ‘Star Wars’ movies were,” Johnson said.
Some of this work will entail time investigating the motivations of the hero trio, Rey, Finn, and Poe, while also revealing more about the mysterious histories of these starring characters. “I wanted to know more about each of them, and that doesn’t just mean information or backstory,” Johnson said. “Figure out what’s the most difficult thing each of them could be challenged with now — let’s throw that at them and dig into what really makes them tick by seeing how they handle that.”
The iconic Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill, will also appear from the get-go and keep coming back onscreen for more. Johnson knows Luke is a fan favorite and a figure they’ll want on screen as much as possible, so he’s “approaching it with a take that I hope feels honest and real and is going to be interesting to folks and make sense.”Though Johnson did not reveal the title of the upcoming film, he said he’s had it in mind since he first started working on the film. “I’ll just blurt it out right now!” he joked. “All in good time.”
As the case often is with those working on the new “Star Wars” movies, Johnson grew up watching Skywalkers and Kenobis journey through a galaxy far, far away.
“It’s felt resonant and meaningful because it meant so much to me as a kid,” he said. “The creative work has felt like play.”
