JJ Abrams Says Directing Star Wars Is A “Terrifying Prospect”

JJ Abrams has been chatting about the pressure and “weird buzz” of Star Wars: The Force Awakens…

The resurrection of the Star Wars franchise is just eleven short months away, and JJ Abrams has opened up about the daunting yet exciting project of directing the first long-anticipated sequel, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“It is without question an intense and terrifying prospect”, Abrams told MTV when asked how he feels about the anticipation towards the film, which got its first trailer in December.

“It’s also the opportunity I think that’s greater than the fear. Greater than the risk, and so I’m more excited about the work that everyone has done on the movie, and this incredible cast”. 

Abrams also looked back on the shoot, arguing “it was an amazing experience making this movie for everyone. There was a weird buzz in the air when we were making this movie, but we were all just aware of how hard we had to work to make it something worthy of people’s time”. 

It’s back to the editing room for the time being for JJ Abrams and his team though, as the lengthy post-production period on Star Wars continues.
