    In a recent interview with American business magazine Fast Company, co-writer and director of Star Wars: Episode IX, J.J. Abramstook a moment to talk about his experience with the upcoming Star Wars sequel. Abrams discusses his initial hesitation in taking on the final installment of the three-trilogy-spanning saga, the importance of hiring co-writer Chris Terrio, and his overall sense of satisfied accomplishment about what he feels he and his team have achieved with their conclusion to the beloved saga.





    (from Fast Company):



    First, Abrams discussed his feelings about being back after months of shooting Star Wars:

    Abrams went on to talk about being asked to step in after Colin Trevorrow's exit from the film and his initial hesitation to do so:



    After encouragement from his wife, he decided to come back to the galaxy far, far away one more time:



    Having done a Star Wars movie before, Abrams recognized the importance of bringing someone else in to co-write with him, someone he admired that would bring with him a fresh set of eyes. Enter Chris Terrio:

    Abrams compared the pressure of writing, directing, and completing Episode IX in such a short time to his experience with the pilot episode of his TV series Lost:

    Abrams would not only be finishing what he started with The Force Awakens, but he would be picking up the narrative continued by Rian Johnson in The Last Jedi:



    Lastly, Abrams expresses (with a healthy degree of humility) his excitement and sense of accomplishment with the movie they've made:



    The above is only a small portion of the original interview, focusing on the Star Wars related bits of the discussion. For the full interview, including Abrams' comments on his company (Bad Robot) and his recent deal with Apple, click HERE.

    So excited to see this sequel trilogy as a whole story. I have not been shy about declaring it my favorite trilogy so I hope IX can keep this going. I have that unjustifably good feeling that this movie is going to be really special.

    He seems like a really nice person. Can't wait for IX.

    When he said bringing the nine movies together I screamed like Terrio by the way :D

    I'm a bit concerned about them "rushing" it, but for what it's worth; so far we haven't heard any production drama rumors like with Solo.

    "While there are some threads of larger ideas and some big picture things that had been conceived decades ago and a lot of ideas that Lawrence Kasdan and I had when we were doing Episode VII, the lack of absolute inevitability, the lack of a complete structure for this thing, given the way it was being run was an enormous challenge."

    Well, I'm encouraged that he at least addressed this issue. 'Admitting you have a problem' is usually the first step :)
