One of the most surprising things Matrix Resurrections when it was first announced it was news to which Lilly Wachowski would not return directs the project together with his sister Lana, with whom she is wrote and directed the first three films. Although Lilly gave a blessing to her sister and the rest of the film’s creative team, she eventually decided not to return for the fourth installment for a number of reasons, including her exhausting work schedule.
In addition to her professional commitments, Lilly, who recently emerged as a transgender person, and the departure of both parents five weeks apart, also influenced her decision not to be a part of Resurrections. For Lilly, Resurrections it represented a significant part of her previous life to which she was not particularly interested in returning, which is more than understandable on multiple levels.

For Lana Wachowski, the return of Neo and Trinity was both cathartic and healing.
“It was immediately comforting to have these two characters alive again, and it’s super simple,” Wachowski explained. You can look at it and say, ‘okay, these two people are dying and well, revive these two people and oh, isn’t that good?’ It is! It’s simple, and that’s what art does and that’s what stories do, they comfort us. ”
