J.J. Abrams wants Star Wars fans to feel “satisfied” after Episode IX


J.J. Abrams really wants one thing from Star Wars fans after seeing Episode IX. He wants them to be ‘satisfied.’

J.J. Abrams heard and saw the backlash Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Frankly, who didn’t?

But the Star Wars: Episode IX director says he didn’t let the negative reactions dictate the finale for the Skywalker Saga. In an interview with ET Online, Abrams said:

"“No, I think that every movie is its own movie, and obviously this is a trilogy,” Abrams said. “We brought to that movie all the passion and hard work that we would have no matter what. So I think the story speaks for itself. I really, truly can’t wait for you to see it.”"

We can’t wait to see it, but even with all the positivity that has surrounded the movie – and, look, we know the actors and those around it aren’t going to say anything bad – there are going to be those that will be down on Episode IX regardless of the outcome.

The animosity some fans have toward Star Wars after The Last Jedi is just so ingrained in their feelings toward the franchise that nothing is going to change that.

However, I say keep an open mind because you don’t want to miss what could be an absolutely incredible movie. I keep thinking back to what Kevin Smith said about Star Wars: Episode IX when he visited set.

He cried. It was a moving experience for Smith. He wouldn’t say things like if he did not believe in it.

Carrie Fisher’s daughter and brother have given their stamp of approval on how she is used in Episode IX even calling it magical.

Regardless of the reaction from Star Wars fans, Abrams will put out the best movie he could possibly could, which is exactly what he said. No good and bad reaction is going to change that as he has a job to do and has every intention of doing it well.

So he wants Star Wars fans really just to feel one thing after seeing Episode IX:

"“There are a lot of words that we all hope that you feel,” Abrams said, “and obviously the biggest one is ‘satisfied’.”"
