Wired have an interview with Star Wars The Force Awakens (or Force for short, apparently!) director, J.J. Abrams, and it's one of the best interviews I've read with man so far. Here are some of the highlights...
On designing the story with Empire Strikes Back writer Lawrence Kasdan:
On building a story that will be continued by directors Rian Johnson and Colin Trevarrow:
On adding to the already iconic and expansive Star Wars canvas:
On the legendary John Williams:
On casting Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac:
This article is fascinating, and really shows J.J. Abrams as the fan we all want him to be. It's unsurprisingly light on plot details, but, as J.J. Abrams addresses in the interview, you really don't want to know too much going in anyway. I highly recommend heading over to Wired now and checking this out.
Thank you for reading,
