J.J. Abrams Confirms That Some STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Rumors Are True
Since Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been in production, there have been a ton of rumors and spoilers leaking out. We even posted one earlier this morning regarding how the movie opens. We've considered all of these leaked spoilers rumors, but in a new interview with director J.J. Abrams, he confirms that some of those spoilers are actually true.
This is what the director told the BBC when they caught up with him at the Oscar Wilde Awards in Los Angeles.
"There are a ton of rumours – some true, some false. But I’m grateful for everyone who would want to read a spoiler because it means that they care and want to see the movie. I know what it feels like, as an enormous Star Wars fan myself."
I thought it was interesting that he says he's grateful for everyone who would reads the spoilers. So you have his blessing to read them if you want. As a huge fan myself, it's hard not to! There's only one spoiler that I've managed to avoid, and it has to do with the ending of the film. He went on to give an update on the status of the film, saying:
"I can’t wait for you to see it. It’s been a blast working on this and luckily we have an incredible post-production team. There are always challenges as you go but it’s been a complete kick to put this together."
If I would have to guess which rumors are true and which are false, I'd say the earlier rumors that went around before the film production began are false, but I think there's a good chance that the rumors that came late in the production of the film are true.
Are you a reader of spoilers? Or are you trying to avoid them like the plague?
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens December 18th.
