Star Wars: Episode VII producer and LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy revealed in a recent interview that the production of this highly-anticipated sequel may not be as secretive as once imagined. Here's what the producer had to say, revealing she wants to "embrace" the fans' insatiable appetite for all things Star Wars.
"We talk about that all the time. I think the whole issue of confidentiality is gonna be fascinating as we move into making the movie. If we're shooting anything outside, it's almost impossible to not have things end up on the Internet. So my feeling is, you need to embrace that, especially with the fans around something like Star Wars. You need to recognize they're important to the process and acknowledge there are things you're gonna want to make sure they get to know. So I think that's something we're going to monitor, pay attention to and think differently about."
This statement is particularly interesting when you take into account that J.J. Abrams, one of the most secretive filmmakers in the industry, is directing Star Wars: Episode VII. We are still a long ways away from Star Wars: Episode VII going into production, but, hopefully the shoot will be as fan-friendly as Kathleen Kennedy makes it out to be.
