JJ Abrams set to spill the beans on Star Wars in Entertainment Weekly cover interview
JJ Abrams looks set to finally open up about the forthcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with a cover story interview in the annual Entertainment Weekly Fall Movie Preview Issue.
Entertainment Weekly assure us they won’t be dropping any spoilers, which is hardly a surprise given Abrams’ notoriously secretive approach to his movies, but they do promise some intriguing new bits of information from the director, including:
• Who is Adam Driver’s villainous wielder of the crossguard-lightsaber? What is his relationship with Darth Vader … and is Kylo Ren his original name?
• What was it like on Harrison Ford’s first day back on the clock as Han Solo, when he finally set foot back on the Millennium Falcon after three decades?
• Which cult-horror movie inspired one of the main characters, and what cuddly child’s toy led to the name of another?
• What are the chances of Abrams returning to the directors chair for Episode IX (if he’s invited)?
The weekly US entertainment mag promises plenty more from the usually tight-lipped movie maker, and you can rest assured that if you’re not a subscriber, we’ll have a run down of the key information in the next few days when the next issue drops.
