In a recent interview with Fortune, the topic of working on another Star Wars film came up, to which J.J. answers.
“It was a wonderful way to visit a place that meant so much to me and obviously so many,” Abrams said in an interview with Fortune at South by Southwest. “I knew that if it worked, it was the perfect time to step down – and if it didn’t, no one would want me to do it anyway.”
“I’m very happy to be where I am,” he says. “Rian Johnson [who is currently directing Episode Eight] is brilliant and needs no help from me. As executive producer, I’ve been collaborating with them, but they are obviously doing all of the heavy lifting and it’s very exciting to see what’s going on.”
