J.J. Abrams, director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, appeared on Good Morning America this morning to talk about—what else?—the seventh, and perhaps BIGGEST, film yet in the behemoth Star Wars franchise. Eighteen days and counting (17 days for previews!) until the granddaddy of all space operas takes over worldwide box-offices, generating what some analysts are saying can be the biggest box-office opening of all time. (See our detailed article detailing what analysts are saying).
Here, in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, J.J. talks about the first time seeing the film, where’s Luke, and why he turned down the director’s job when Kathleen Kennedy first approached him. He also expounds on the idea that the heroes of the original trilogy have become myth and legend to the galaxy. Interesting. Take a listen to the interview here.
