JJ Abrams Talks Star Wars Secrecy


Saying that Disney is being tight lipped about the new Abrams Star Wars films is putting it lightly. In fact he doesn’t even get to see the light of day.

During an interview with the Daily Telegraph Abrams stated that,

“My office… I’m working on the Star Wars script today and the people in my office have covered up all my windows with black paper. I guess they wanted to make sure no one could see what I was doing. it seems rather extreme.”

No matter how many windows they black out or precautions they take, leaks can come from within. Speaking on the point of scripts in the digital age,

“I do think there’s something about the digital age that is increasingly dehumanising us. We’re in this very weird place where we’re being pulled into experiences that aren’t really experiences at all. When you’re printing something on a Chandler & Price letterpress, even though it might take a long time and it’s imperfect, isn’t that the point?”

He goes on to say,

“We’re living in a moment of instant information and a sense of entitlement to that information. But I think it’s nice to remember that there’s nothing wrong with a sense of anticipation.”
