Oscar Isaac wants disappointed Star Wars fans to create the stories they want to see


Oscar Isaac talks about fan backlash of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and asks fans to create their own inspiring work.

Anytime a Star Wars actor is interviewed, the inevitable question comes up about the negative reception The Last Jedi faced from a portion of the fan base.

Some are disappointed, some look to the future of the untitled Star Wars: Episode IX for a way to bring that part of the fan base back. Others realize it may not change, but look at it more as an opportunity to take something you love and create you own thing.

Oscar Isaac falls into the last category. He portrays Poe Dameron in the Sequel Trilogy and has dealt with negative feedback surrounding the films, but not even close to what director Rian Johnson faced from The Last Jedi. He has seen what fans have said, and doesn’t discount them.

Instead, he looks at their disappointment and sees a way for the community to grow.

"“What I think is really special about the whole thing — particularly for people that really didn’t agree with where the story went — is that it’s often a great inspiration to do your own stuff,” Isaac told Yahoo! Entertainment in a recent interview. “Obviously, making your own Star Wars movie is a bit of a tough challenge, but at least from a narrative standpoint maybe you make your own thing and then show what you would want. Make what you would want to see.”"

While there maybe a toxic group of fans that would like to change The Last Jedi, Isaac does have a point. Fanfic exists for a reason, it’s a reimagining a story with your favorite characters. Perhaps you didn’t like how a story played out or you thought of a great story that you know would never get told.

There is room for creativity and exploring those avenues – in a healthy way. That’s the important part.

Disagreeing with a story line is perfectly fine and will happen. Even the most passionate fan will not like everything. Using that as a fuel to create your own story is even better because it gives you a chance to explore your own amazing ideas.

I’m with Isaac on this one. Disliking something, even The Last Jedi, doesn’t have to be a bad thing. You can take something and flip into something that you love.
