J.J. Abrams is one of the most secretive directors working in Hollywood so in a serious change of pace he has confirmed that some of the reported rumors about ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ are true! That seems like something even George Lucas wouldn’t have done. Which theories and rumored plot points that have hit the web are spot on? Abrams hasn’t gone so far as to directly spoil the film so it’s still up in the air as to what is really going to be happening in the film.
While hosting the Irish Oscar Wilde awards where Carrie Fisher was being honored, he sat down with BBC News to talk a bit about the movie. On the rumors he had the following to say:
“We did the best we can to preserve the story for the audience, but it doesn’t always work. There are a ton of rumors – some true, some false. But I’m grateful for everyone who would want to read a spoiler because it means that they care and want to see the movie.”
So no word on which of the rumors so far are true. However, if you’ve been following our reports you’ll know that everything from what Luke Skywalker has been up to, who the actors are playing and even a major character death have all been brought up. Almost every character in the film has been mentioned up to this point, so it’s hard to even hazard a guess as to which rumors are actually accurate or not.
