Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens has already became the most anticipated giant release in Hollywood. Fans eagerly await the movie which will feature cast, old and new. The latest technology and special effects will make the movie better than it ever was.
J.J. Abrams, the director of the movie is definitely in control of creating the hype for the movie. Apart from a trailer and some artwork, he has been keeping the movie in wraps. While there is a thin line between promoting a movie and keeping it a secret. Abrams is qualified with his vast experience in delivering movies.
Entertainment Weekly brought a twelve photos collection and an interview with Abrams about the movie. The pictures include photos of Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron, Daisy Ridley’s Rey and John Boyega’s Finn — but it’s Episode VII’s new villain, the Darth Vader-obsessed Kylo Ren.
Oscar Issac photo features him in an orange jumpsuit. Two other picture featured shots that include the characters engaged in some characteristic actions. The picture to dominate the set was of Kylo Ren.
Being played by Adam Driver, the character has raised a lot of questions. The cover features a picture of Ren, masked and armed by a light saber. Another picture features him standing with soldiers clad in white.
Talking about Ren, Abrams said that he is more complex and mysterious than Darth Vader. He is a character who is not fully cognizant of his true nature. He attributes that to the plot of the movie where both sides believe themselves to be good.
Furthermore, he elaborated that Kylo Ren is a name he had taken after joining the Knights of Ren. His mask was indeed inspired by Darth Vader’s. The director took whole credit for the lightsaber though.
He said that he had been offered by the president of LucasFilms whether he would like to determine and answer question about what was to happen next in the Star Wars. He said his wife told him he’d regret his whole life that he wanted to do this and didn’t.
Abrams confirmed that the rumor about movie showing some clips at the Disney Festival. He said that there will be a trailer in the fall. The movie is set to release on December 18th.
