Watch: J.J. Abrams Questioned by Celebrities All About 'Star Wars'
"Uh, you tell me, man. You make all this shit up." Indeed. To drum up some attention for their coverage of Star Wars, Vanity Fair made a video featuring The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams being asked questions about The Force Awakens from a bevy of celebrities. He takes their questions from an iPad, featuring people like Jared Leto, Lena Dunham, Katie Couric, T.J. Miller, Lee Daniels, Shane Smith, and even George Lucas, asking him all kinds of things he can't really talk about yet. He doesn't even answer most of their questions, of course, but tries his best one-liners with some. Oh, J.J. This is fun, and honestly, it's the most we'll get out of J.J. Abrams on pretty much anything until The Force Awakens finally opens.
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, continuing the beloved original trilogy about Luke, Leia, Han & Chewie that ended in 1983, is directed by J.J. Abrams, of the films Mission: Impossible 3, Star Trek, Super 8 and Star Trek Into Darkness. The screenplay is written by Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Return of the Jedi, The Big Chill, The Bodyguard) and J.J. Abrams, with Kathleen Kennedy from Lucasfilm producing. This debut is the beginning of a brand new saga, with another trilogy planned for this storyline, with Rian Johnson and Colin Trevorrow lined up to direct. Disney, after acquiring Lucasfilm in 2012, will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters worldwide on December 18th.
