The Force is Awakening, the new war in the stars is coming... and everyone is fixating on that damnable lightsabre!
And director JJ Abrams thinks its all hilarious, at least according to this quick interview with Collider from the red carpet at theVisual Effects Society awards on Wednesday. He's got plenty to say on effects, IMAX and more, so give it a watch.
No kidding- the lightsabre came from a lot of conversations and people were both for and against it! It's also interesting to hear that the IMAX scope was only used for one sequence, and that he'll have some involvement in the upcoming episodes of the franchise. And he's back on board Star Trek in some capacity.
Star Wars The Force Awakens is in cinemas in December 2015.
