VIDEO JJ Abrams answers Star Wars questions

Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens is in cinemas in less than two months, that’s incredibly exciting news.

And we still don’t know much about it, thanks to a masterfully mysterious marketing campaign to date. That’s likely partly down to director JJ Abrams who has a history of keeping secrets, whether it’s stringing us along for years with Lost or just refusing to talk about Kahn during interviews about Star Trek Into Darkness.

Well that silence is at an end, with Vanity Fair forcing the filmmaking to answer questions from a host of celebrity sorts, including Lena Dunham, George Lucas and a bunch of people from major companies in the US.

Naturally enough, he doesn’t really tell us anything and the collection of people asking questions is extremely random.

Regardless, all will be answered (probably) when The Force Awakens arrives in cinemas on December 17 2015.
