During an interview with Yahoo! Entertainment prior to the release of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” Golden Globe-winning actor and Poe Dameron himself, Oscar Isaac, was asked to give his thoughts and feelings surrounding the criticism of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” And it appears that the actor is choosing to see the cup half-full in this instance. Isaac said, “What I think is really special about the whole thing … is that it’s often a great inspiration to do your own stuff.”
Obviously, Isaac acknowledged that producing a movie on the scale of a “Star Wars” entry would be “a bit of a tough challenge” for your average fan. However, he did clarify, “at least from a narrative standpoint maybe you make your own thing and then show what you would want. Make what you would want to see.”
Isaac has noted how challenging it is to conclude a series as massive as “Star Wars,” and so it’s certainly probable that it was an immensely difficult task for the entire crew. With the Skywalker saga now supposedly over, it will be interesting to see if or when Isaac’s Poe or any of the sequel trilogy characters will show up in future projects.
