In New Interview, Tight-Lipped Abrams Praises "Unfamiliar World" Of Original Trilogy

Posted by Eric on November 3, 2013 at 09:29 AM CST

Star Wars Episode VII director (and now co-screenwriter) J.J. Abrams discussed a fan video with "rules" for making Star Wars movies and explained what appealed to him about the original trilogy in a recent interview with The Times magazine. The original interview is behind a paywall, but The Daily Telegraph gives us some key points from the article.

Abrams would not comment on story or casting decisions, although according to The Times, actor Chiwetel Ejiofor was "sitting in the lobby of J.J. Abrams' office" when the interviewer arrived to meet Abrams. Jedi News wasted no time in flat-out proclaiming that Ejiofor "will be joining the cast of Episode VII in an as yet undisclosed role," but as always, nothing is confirmed until Lucasfilm or Disney says it is.
