Prequel Trilogy,  The Rise of Skywalker

Episode IX writer Chris Terrio reportedly said the Prequels will be referenced


From StarWarsNewsNet:

A recent Reddit thread was just started by someone who just met with [Episode IX writer-director J.J.] Abrams and his co-writer Chris Terrio, with photographic proof:

I got to meet JJ Abrams and Chris Terrio tonight. I’m now 100% sure that Episode 9 will be incredible. from StarWars

The poster specifically went on to claim that they got to speak with Abrams and Terrio, and while they obviously couldn’t spoil anything, one thing of interest seems to be that the Prequel Trilogy will definitely be alluded to:

“They said that they’re going to be brave and there will be big surprises. I got the impression that JJ felt like he had to refresh previous Star Wars moments for a modern audience in TFA, and now it feels like they have free reign to do what they want. Apparently they’ve had no interference from Kathleen or Pablo or the Lucasfilm Story Group. 9 is also the film which unites all three trilogies and brings everything together. That’s all they would tell me.”

“I worry a little bit that the questions I was asking were too leading. I was speaking to Chris and he was talking about the OT. I said about how I grew up with the PT and the prequels were my entry point into Star Wars. I asked about elements of the PT coming into 9 and Chris said about how 9 unites all of it. He said 9 definitely makes it feel like they’re all happening in the same universe, and there would be PT elements in 9. They could be visual or thematic – he didn’t overtly say that there would be returning planets or characters from the PT or anything.”

Interestingly, this insistence that this movie is going to serve as both the conclusion of the Sequel Trilogy and the conclusion of the trilogy of trilogies lines up with the kind of vision that Colin Trevorrow wanted to bring to Episode IX:

“By the time we get to Episode IX, I look at that movie as one movie, as three movies, as six movies, and as nine movies. It’s something that needs to honor a story that has been told over a period of 40 years… I don’t want to ignore any of it, and I respect all of it. It’s something I think the fanbase is going to embrace.”

    I think the PT will be referenced. But to what extent, I don’t know? But I am sure it will be very little and very vague. Disney and Co. have shown their cowardice and are really afraid of upsetting some vocal clowns. It amazes me and also makes me laugh that Disney and Co. are actually scared of these idiots. It’s pathetic. I mean TFA could have gone in the most unexpected and original way possible and there would have been fans who loved it. These screen writers make big money to write stories. Let them EARN that money by being original. Because I know they can’t look at themselves in the mirror and be proud of the job they did with TFA. After collecting that big paycheck. But Disney made their first mistake by catering to the clowns, to “try and win them back.” So now these same clowns thinks Disney is there to cater to their wants and needs. I mean I have been a SW fan since 77. Even if I hated the PT, which I don’t. But if I did, I would still love the SW that I have always loved. I wouldn’t need to be “won back” by some corporation. If any fan needs to be “won back”, to me they weren’t fans to begin with. If these so called “fans” hated the PT, but loved the OT, why then do they need another trilogy of the same stuff? They didn’t like the PT? Fine. But this is the ST now. But the clowns needed a new trilogy that ignores the PT simply because they didn’t like them. Instead we just got a lot of the same. Rebels vs. Empire, no Jedi order, A fallen Jedi turned and seduced to the dark side, a Sidious clone, an orphan living on a desert planet with a destiny to become a Jedi, a Jedi master living in isolation etc. This was all made possible by lots of whining and moaning over the years.

    Episode 8 looks pretty well so far to me. I am hoping it turns out to be great. But who knows what the end result will be. But if it is unoriginal, I will be even more pissed than I am now. But I remain optimistic. Even though I have seen some rehash elements of 5 going on. Resistance speeders engaging FO walkers, a mining planet like Bespin was a mining planet. The FO using their fleet of destroyers hunting down the Resistance. Rey will have to stop her training because she senses her friends in danger like Luke did in 5. I mean anyone knows that she won’t stay on that planet the entire film. Some of these are guesses, but some are observations.
