Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was the last big-ticket film of 2019 to release towards the end of December and the expectations for Episode IX ran high, given it was marketed as the end of the Skywalker saga. However, when the movie did release, it was met with mixed reactions, similar to the ones received by Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017). Many argued over the fact that the ending was hasty and the character arcs were not justified.

But what did the cast feel about the same? While attending the Oscars 2020, Oscar Isaac, who Star Wars fans love as Poe Dameron, was asked by MTV News on his views regarding the mixed reaction Episode IX was getting. To this, Oscar shared, "Not really. You know, it was the same in the movie before that as well. You know people -- it means a lot to people, so." Furthermore, when asked if the negative criticism was justified, Isaac quipped, "Yeah, look. Was there some crying in the shower? Yes! Exactly! That's how I do it, you know."
