• “The Rise of Skywalker” is the final edition in the epic “Star Wars” trilogy, and that means director J.J. Abrams and the “Star Wars” cast can laugh about the interview questions that they never want to answer again.

    “The whole spoiler hunt is always a kind of annoying. One, cause it’s just like a game where everyone knows you can’t say anything, but they still try to get those quotes out of you,” actor Oscar Isaac told Variety.

    Actress Kelly Marie Tran, who plays Rose, agreed with Isaac. She also disliked being asked questions when she couldn’t say anything.

    “It’s like I can’t — we know we can’t talk about it,” Tran said. “It’ll be nice to just have everything out in the open. No more secrets.”

    Actor Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) said he never wants to hear the question, “What is it like?” again while Daisy Ridley told Variety she had difficulty with, “How has your life changed?”

    J.J. Abrams, however, doesn’t want to complain.

    “I feel like I’d be a bit of a contrarian or a jerk if I was complaining about any aspect of this,” Abrams said. “Like no one asked me to do this…you know I didn’t have to, but I was so excited by the possibility of it despite the immense challenge, so the truth is I shouldn’t have said yes, if I had an answer to that question.”
