I think my gut reaction is that I hope they end it — they actually end it — and end it well. I'm OK if they do one-offs in the future, and they will because it's Disney and they'll milk this for the rest of my life and beyond. I hope they actually have the balls to end it. Close the door. End it well, but do end it.
That would be my dream job right there. I would fix everything that went wrong. If it's the start of a new trilogy, I'm done with the Skywalkers. It's like three generations of one family that has been screwing over the galaxy. There's more families in the universe than the Skywalkers.
Oh gosh... I'm trying to think how it's supposed to end.
Any controversial Star Wars hot takes? Do you want it to end? Ever?
No, I don't! My husband and I just started going through from start to finish, and when I saw the preview for the new one coming out that it was the end of the saga I was like, "NOOOOOO!"
I'm kind of just excited to see how J.J. Abrams is gonna wrap it up after what Rian Johnson did to it.
Is there any direction you'd like to see the new generation go in?
I've heard Jon Favreau is going to be very involved going forward and if the future of Star Wars is going to be anything like The Mandalorian, then that's great. More of that.
I've never actually seen one.
What do you think it's about?
Intergalactic interactions, but I don't know the details. I know who R2-D2 is.
