The Midichlorians, which George Lucas built into the Star Wars saga with the prequel trilogy, came up against much criticism. Now director J.J. Abrams and actress Daisy Ridley on Star Wars: Episode 9 – The Rise of Skywalker.
Since the prequel trilogy Midichlorians are part of the Star Wars saga. They should explain the power scientifically, but many fans did not like it that much. However, they have not been mentioned in the sequel trilogy so far. What about the Midichlorians in Star Wars: Episode 9 – The rise of Skywalker out?
Midichlorians are part of Star Wars
Director J.J. Abrams said in an interview that the Midichlorians are part of the story of Star Wars. George Lucas invented them and they belong to the "Lore". For him, the concept was never really appealing. "The idea of Midichlorians can be seen in the movies, so it's part of the story and everyone accepts it because that's what George wrote and they're part of the Lore," Abrams said. "And yet, what I remember when I was a kid and saw the first movie and Obi-Wan Kenobi talked about power and how it surrounds us all and holds every living thing together and that feeling of that kind of power … For This concept has always been a bit stronger for me. "
Abrams goes on to explain that what George Lucas invented can be interpreted in different ways, and for him it was simply more the concept of a power that you feel, draw strength from and believe in.
Actress Daisy Ridley (Rey) added, "What people love about Star Wars, and what I love about being a human being is that we're all connected and everyone has their own version of power, and I think People have them in different ways, and I think we are all blessed with beautiful sensibility. "
So the Midichlorians are an official part of Star Wars, but in the Sequel trilogy and also in Star Wars: Episode 9 – The Ascension of Skywalker, they do not matter.
