Improvisation is responsible for some important moments in Star Wars history—Han’s famous “I know”, for instance—but it’s not considered the norm. According to Oscar Isaac, that might be changing.
In a recent interview with IndieWire, Isaac discussed the shooting of the new Star Wars, saying, “The way they’ve been shooting it right now is looser than it’s been for the past two times,” a comment that the article clarifies refers to on-set improvisation. “It does feel like a relief to get on set and feel like, ‘Oh, we can try things.’ It’s a testament to J.J. coming back and feeling confident. There’s less pressure for it to be right. We just want to make a good movie and have a really good time while doing it.”
