JW: ...Empire committed the cardinal sin of not actually ending. Which at the time I was appalled by, and I still think it was a terrible idea.
EW: You think The Empire Strikes Back had a bad ending?
JW: Well, it's not an ending. It's a come-back-next-week, or in three years. That upsets me. I go to movies expecting to have a whole experience. If I want a movie that doesn't end, I'll go to a French movie. A movie has to be complete within itself; it can't just build off the first one or play variations.
