Director JJ Abrams on the Star Wars Ending and Including Carrie Fisher

The 10-year-old J.J. Abrams who loved watching Star Wars for the the first time, would never have believed that more than 40 years later he’d be the filmmaker to write and direct the ninth and final film to the Star Wars franchise, The Rise of Skywalker.
