In an interview, author Chris Terrio did not hesitate to criticize his own film Star Wars: Episode 9. He would have wished for a little more time to give all the characters and story aspects a little more freedom. Ideally, he would have liked to have released the film in two parts.
The recently released movie Star Wars: Episode 9 – The Rise of Skywalker continues to generate heated discussions within the community. In the meantime, the author Chris Terrio has spoken out, who, together with the director J.J. Abrams was responsible for the script. In an interview with the Awards Daily magazine, he did not hesitate to criticize his own work (indirectly) and openly admitted one of the film's greatest weaknesses. When asked if he wanted to release Episode 9 in two parts, he replied:
"I wish we could have done that. There is a lot of story in this film and as an author you always want the scenes to have a little more room to breathe. If there had been a way to do that it was my dream to split it up. We could have continued writing these characters forever. There was so much background story that we had to leave aside. I wish we could have done it. But George (Lucas, editor's note) always had said that there should be nine films. (…) As an author, it always breaks your heart when you have to leave out so many things that you think gave the story a little more depth and nuances and do more to the characters Speaking for myself and not the studio: I wish there had been 'Part 1' and 'Part 2'. "
