With not only the end of the sequel trilogy arriving in December but also the conclusion of the 9 film saga, The Rise of Skywalker is the one film that needs to stick the landing better than any entry so far. What better time to involve George Lucas – the man who began this whole endeavour – to discuss and reveal the true nature of the Force.

“He had a lot of things to say about the nature of the Force, the themes that he was dealing with when he was writing the movies. Yes, there were some conversations about Midi-chlorians – he loves his Midi-chlorians. But it was a very helpful thing. Sitting with him is a treat, just to hear him talk, because it’s f****** George Lucas talking about Star Wars. I always feel it’s a gift to hear him talk about that stuff. Because the effect that he had on me at 10 years old is utterly profound.”
