Earlier this week, a major interview with Abrams found the director talking positively about the pressure to get The Rise Of Skywalker right, amidst all the pressure of closing the trilogy and stepping on to the project after original director Colin Trevorrow departed. He said that he "can't wait for people to see" what's in store for the film. We will take a pause for some time and reset. because the Skywalker saga comes to an end with this ninth movie. "I think the story speaks for itself", he said. He added that this is her fight now. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honor Carrie's legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII. "Star Wars [can be] in any of those areas". The cast of the new movie is led by Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, and Keri Russell.

"She's so alive in the scenes", Abrams said. And ultimately, I hope to share all of this with my niece one day.
