Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac explain why they’d like a break from Star Wars after The Rise of Skywalker.
Now that The Rise Of Skywalker has finally arrived in theaters, Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac both revealed that they think Star Wars needs a break after the final entry in the new sequel trilogy. Daisy Ridley explained in the interview with Yahoo Entertainment that she thinks the new film should have its moment before letting the franchise breathe. It’s a valid point, since there’s been a new Star Wars film every year since 2015 including Rogue One and Solo.
“What I want is a break. And everyone’s discussed it but I think we just need to let The Rise Of Skywalker have its moment and then just take a breath.”
Oscar Isaac echoed Daisy Ridley’s comments, saying that he thinks Star Wars should “slow down a little” in the future so that when the next instalment arrives, it’ll be appreciated more. Which again makes complete sense alongside the initial reception to The Force Awakens. It broke box office records and was met with critical acclaim. Oscar Isaac also mentioned that a break would make the next film feel even more special.
“I would like to see it slow down a little bit. I think, you know, to make it special when the next one comes out and it doesn’t feel like it’s part of an assembly line, but that it’s really particularly specially made stories that are really about something… And taking the time to find the right people to put those things together and developing it with a real clear arc in mind.”
