J.J. Abrams recently sat down and talked a little about how he felt on the making of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ and gave some great insight on putting it all together. As the director of the first two new ‘Star Trek’ movies you really have to wonder what was going through the mind of a person who switched over to do the first new film in the other side of the ‘Star Wars vs Star Trek’ debate on which is better science fiction.
You’ll quickly see that this couldn’t have been an easy decision for him.
After the love we’ve had for the original trilogy and the loathing many had for the second trilogy you may Abrams felt about being in the director’s seat on what will be one of the most anticipated films of 2015, and possibly the decade.
“It is, without question, an intense and terrifying prospect. … The opportunity, I think, is greater than the fear, greater than the risk. I’m more excited about the work that everyone has done in the movie and the incredible cast.”
Well it is good that he is focusing on the opportunity because we all know what path fear will lead him down. With Disney having laid out out four billion dollars to pickup LucasArts there is just a little bit on the line here and Abrams knows that.
Thankfully he had a team to help him put it together and he fully acknowledges that.
“It was an amazing experience making this movie, for everyone. There was a sort of 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 peoples’ time.”
The film is clearly the most anticipated film of 2015 with only ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ having a chance to give the movie a run for its money, there is a lot at stake here.
Do you think Abrams will have put together a masterpiece here or did he bite off more than he can chew? Share your thoughts below!
