While discussing with Yahoo Movies his latest movie “A Most Violent Year”, the actor shared his disappointment for the huge amount of leaks surrounding the new Star Wars movie. He interestingly revealed though, that most of the fan theories about The Force Awakens are totally wrong…
From Yahoo Movies:
“They won’t even do that (give you a script in advance). You go to the place, and they have a room with cameras and you sit there and read the script. They’re incredibly protective, because nowadays, with however many hundreds of blogs and this and that, people are just ravenous for content. So because of that, there has to be such tight security around it. And it gets in the way of the process a bit, but it’s understandable.”
“I can’t speak for the cast and crew (about the leaks), I can just speak for myself, but for me I thought, Don’t you want to wait so you can get the real thing?” Isaac said. “But it creates excitement for it. I don’t think these little leaks necessarily ruined watching the trailer. And also, the [plot theories] that get that formulated based on these things — they couldn’t be more far off-base.”
“It was hard to believe that I was actually sitting in there and doing that (flying the X-Wing),” he said. “And it’s physical. You have to kind of get in touch with that child again that had a little X-Wing and would fly around his room making crazy sounds, you had to tap into that spirit again and that was a lot fun. There was a lot of practical effects. A lot of the stuff they actually made. There wasn’t a lot of green screen.”
Actually I would be really happy if all the fan theories are wrong. I hope that many of us will still be surprised by many aspects of the movie when it hits theaters on December 18, 2015.
