Kathleen Kennedy Talks Episode VII Secrecy

Posted by Eric on April 26, 2013 at 04:42 PM CST

In a video interview with Screen Slam after receiving the Pioneer Of The Year award from the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy addressed fan concerns about the secrecy that will surround Star Wars Episode VII during the production process. Here's the relevant portion of the interview:

Q: How important is secrecy for [Lucasfilm] now? And how do you try and keep secrets, considering how fast things travel now?

A: 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 is exciting news for fans who devour every Star Wars tidbit they can get their hands on, but don't expect Lucasfilm to give away the store. Secrecy breeds anticipation, and anticipation breeds ticket sales.
