Production on the last episode of the new Star Wars trilogy is now underway. This has a lot of fans very excited and it has Domhnall Gleeson feeling really paranoid. While the rest of us can't wait to find out what happens in Star Wars Episode IX, Gleeson already knows all the answers, which has him worried he might accidentally spill the beans before the movie's release next year. According to Gleeson...
In many cases, actors aren't even allowed to read the entire script for a movie as big as Star Wars Episode IX. However, Domhnall Gleeson reveals to the Happy Sad Confused Podcast (opens in new tab) that he has, in fact, read the entire script for the new film. This means that he knows every spoilery detail about the plot, but it also means the odds are greater that he might accidentally spill something. His personal fear appears to be talking in his sleep when surrounded by strangers, which is not the sort of thing most people would worry about first, but this is far from a normal situation.
And Domhnall Gleeson understands just how important every word he chooses to use will be from now until December of 2019 because people are going to overanalyze everything he has to say. He can't even try to give a general description of Star Wars Episode IX without it becoming news. As Gleeson explained...
There is no such thing as "safe territory" when you're talking about one of the biggest movies in recent memory. The new Star Wars episodes have been some of the highest grossing movies ever made, and whether you liked it or not, the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, potentially changes the Star Wars universe in a big way, and thus it's difficult to guess what sort of movie we're actually going to get. We have well over a year to wait, which is going to be torture for fans, and also for Domhnall Gleeson, though apparently for different reasons.
