Mr JJ recently took part in an interview with The Times Magazine where the subject of Star Wars pooped up! Read below for a excerpt of the interview and take the link here for the whole interview!
His thoughts on the infamous video “4 Rules to Make Star Wars Great Again.”: “I would say that’s a feeling that we share very much …” Speaking of him and the crew.
On how A New Hope was an unfamiliar new world: “I loved how Star Wars had that sense of a world far beyond the borders of what you can see and have been told – it’s one of the things it did so brilliantly. If you watch the first movie, you don’t actually know exactly what the Empire is trying to do. They’re going to rule by fear – but you don’t know what their end game is. The beauty of that movie was that it was an unfamiliar world, and yet you wanted to see it expand and to see where it went.”
Understanding the fan bases for the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy: “A lot of kids who saw all the prequels when they were young really do identify with those movies as much as my generation identified with the originals.”
