When you’re the director of the most anticipated film of the year—and, quite possibly, one of the most anticipated in recent memory—you’re constantly fielding questions that you can’t answer given the enormous amount of interest in said film. In the case of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the sequel luckily has someone at the helm who is well-versed in teasing without revealing: J.J. Abrams.
Last night, Abrams attended the Visual Effects Society Awards to accept the Visionary Award. Coincidentally, Steve was at the event and had the chance to speak with Abrams on the red carpet. While no one expects Abrams to be very forthcoming about the movie (after all, it doesn’t open for another seven months), the filmmaker actually spoke quite a bit about some major points of interest in the Star Wars sequel, and also touched on recent developments regarding Star Trek 3.
