As he wraps up more than 40 years of Star Wars movies with The Rise of Skywalker, J.J. Abrams reveals how vital the post-production process is in making sure your movie gets it right.
You may have heard, but the Skywalker Saga is coming to an end.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker marks the last film in the new trilogy that started with 2015’s The Force Awakens — it also concludes the two previous trilogies in the series that started with George Lucas’ 1977 film.
This ending also marks a first for director J.J. Abrams — it is the first time he has finished something he has started, in either TV or film. The director is making the press rounds for Rise of Skywalker and he recently revealed, in addition to Rise‘s run time of 2 hours and 21 minutes, that post-production on Episode IX recently wrapped over the weekend, on Sunday. Abrams is famous (or infamous) for being a tinkerer with story and visuals up until the last possible minute — the filmmaker did reshoots and pick-ups for this film and others at his Bad Robot offices.
