With the successful release of two Star Trek movies behind him, cinemagoers are expecting something that appeals to Star Wars and general audiences alike. No pressure then. But this heartfelt note indicates that he knows what is to come and is ready to shepherd and support all those who work with him, and he expects them to look out for one another too.
Just in case you can’t read his handwriting, the note reads:
“Dearest Cast and Crew - What an honor it is to work beside all of you, on Star Wars Ep VII. I can’t thank you enough, for all work past and future. Let’s take good care of not just ourselves, but of each other. Amazing, but true: the world awaits this film. Let’s give ‘em something GREAT. xo JJ”
There is a long road ahead, but we all hope that they can produce something that is indeed great. Star Wars: Episode VII will be released on December 18th, 2015 and, for many, that day can’t come soon enough.
