This past summer saw a series of leaks from the set, including photos of the Millennium Falcon (which we later saw in the film’s first trailer) and other minor spoilers. Abrams, who provided little tidbits for fans via charity videos and tweets, asked people not to post spoilers, and even hung posters around the set warning of the dire consequences.
Isaac agreed that the leaks were distracting and disappointing, and sort of flew in the face of a true fan experience.
“I can’t speak for the cast and crew, I can just speak for myself, but for me I thought, Don’t you want to wait so you can get the real thing?” Isaac said. “But it creates excitement for it. I don’t think these little leaks necessarily ruined watching the trailer. And also, the [plot theories] that get that formulated based on these things — they couldn’t be more far off-base.”
