The ending of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker may be the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga, but it may not have all the answers we are looking for.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker may not answer all of our questions when the movie comes out next month.
In a recent interview, Naomi Ackie who plays Jannah in the upcoming film, told Metro UK there may be more questions when the film ends. Not everything will be answered, or more questions may be raised.
Even though it is the finale to the Skywalker Saga, there are bound to be more questions that pop up and a two-and-a-half-hour movie may not be able to capture it all.
Ackie told Metro UK:
‘And there are some people that leave it that might feel like they’ve got everything they wanted but there might still be more questions, and that’s the whole point. The story continues.’
It’s her last sentence that actually stands out to me. ‘The story continues.’
I get there will be questions. There are always questions and nothing will ever get wrapped up completely with a pretty bow.
But why does the story continue? What could possibly happen – or not happen – to think the story would continue? Does she mean certain characters live so in essence their stories continue?
Like if Rey is still alive but she defeatsvPalpatine once and for all, that part of the story is over, but hers continues. She still has a life and her story will go on. Does it mean that?
Or does it mean that Palpatine and the Sith somehow continue to live on and the next generation of Jedi or whatever they want to be called continue to fight this battle and there is never an end in sight because light and dark will always clash?
Or am I reading too much into it?
It’s likely a combination of all of it. Some of heroes will live, good and evil will always exist and I look too deeply into what people looking for a hint of what’s to come.
In just over a month until The Rise of Skywalker comes out. Hopefully, it goes by quickly for my sanity’s sake.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters December 20 worldwide.
