Director J.J. Abrams recently took some time out from his busy Star Wars: The Force Awakens post-production schedule to chat briefly with MTV about his experiences in making what is surely the most anticipated movie of 2015. Fans are still talking about the first trailer released in November, and when asked about what it's been like to see fans worldwide react to the trailer, the filmmaker had this to say.
"It is without question an intense and terrifying prospect. It's also the opportunity, I think that's greater than the fear. Greater than the risk, and so I'm more excited about the work that everyone has done on the movie and this incredible cast."
He also described Oscar Isaac's performance as X-Wing fighter pilot Poe Dameron as "remarkably great," adding that there was "a weird buzz" on the set when making this movie.
"It was an amazing experience making this movie for everyone. There was a sort of weird buzz in the air when we were making this movie, but we were all just aware of how hard we had to work to make it something worthy of people's time."
Unfortunately, when asked when fans may see the next glimpse of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams wouldn't divulge any details, joking that he would show new footage to MTV's reporter if they turned the camera off. What do you think about the director's comments?
