How Oscar Isaac Really Feels About Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" serves as the culmination of everything that comes before it — the prequel trilogy and the original trilogy — and is the final movie in what is commonly referred to as the sequel trilogy. During many of the promotions for the film, Disney often noted that it was the end of "the Skywalker saga," seemingly bringing the story of all of the Skywalker line, including Anakin (Hayden Christensen), Luke (Mark Hamill), Leia (Carrie Fisher), and Ben Solo/Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), to a close. As we find out in the movie, Rey (Daisy Ridley) is sort of an adopted Skywalker as well — although her true family is Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid). However, a Skywalker is never truly alone, as all of them have friends in every adventure who stand by them like family.

Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) is, as he states in "Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith," a brother to Anakin. Han Solo (Harrison Ford) is the same for Luke and the love of Leia's life, Ben arguably has Rey, and Rey has both Finn (John Boyega) and the ace X-Wing pilot, Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). Poe and Finn are actually some of the first characters that we are introduced to in the sequel trilogy, during 2015's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." Both remain crucial parts of the Resistance's journey to defeat the First Order, and Rey's quest to find out who she is.

Although "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" wasn't completely applauded by critics or fans (via Rotten Tomatoes), many of the main cast have stated their feelings on the final installment of the sequel trilogy — including Dameron himself. Here's how Isaac really feels about "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker."

Oscar Isaac thinks Rise of Skywalker is a fitting conclusion for an impossible task

In an interview with On Demand Entertainment during the press tour for "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" in December of 2019, Isaac was asked about his honest opinion on what he personally thinks of the film. The Golden Globe-winning actor was quick to respond that "it's good." Isaac continued by saying that he thinks its a very fitting conclusion for "not only the trilogy but to the whole, you know, 42 years. It's also an impossible task. I mean, it's so much story to wrap up, and so I think that the movie's got a lot of heart and incredible work that went into making this epic space opera."

Isaac's feelings about essentially concluding the main set of films for the second highest-grossing franchise of all-time (via Box Office Mojo) are certainly fair, especially when it has spanned such a great amount of time and the universe is so incredibly expansive. Director J.J. Abrams certainly had his work cut out for him, and although there is plenty of controversy over the choices made, in the end, Isaac is supportive of what they created. Isaac is currently starting press for the Disney+ Marvel series "Moon Knight," with the first trailer released on January 17.
