Episode IX is of course on top secret mode until it premieres next year in movie theaters around the world but that doesn’t mean the actors aren’t talking about it. As Star Wars star, Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) goes through publicity for his latest movie, Operation Finale, questions of Episode IX are sure to arise and this time he had a little bit to tell us. Here is what he said.
“It is a war movie. I mean, above and beyond, it is a movie about warriors.”
This next section is about his standing with his character, the Resistance leader, Poe Dameron.
“You want to get people [to question him] as opposed to have some sort of easy answer of like, ‘Yeah, yeah, he did the right thing. He was a hero.’ What’s the cost of this stuff?”
And this next section is easily the most interesting part.
“[The Resistance] are guerrilla fighters, adhering closer to something like the Revolutionary War fighters or even the guerrillas in Cuba with Che and Fidel and all these guys living in the mountains, coming down to do some attacks, and going back and trying to hide from the ’empire’ of the United States. It’s that kind of ragged at this point.
You hear about stories with [George] Washington as a general, where lots of people died based on their orders, but that is part of leadership and that push-and-pull in the fight for figuring out what’s the way to move forward.”
