J.J. Abrams has been busy lately promoting his book "S". Yesterday he stopped by MTV News and talked about the Episode 7 release date, R2-D2, C-3PO and more...
On the release date:
"I will say that it is an infinitely better situation now than when they were saying that they wanted it in the summer [of 2015]. "Before I even came onto the project, they were talking about 2015, and they made this announcement very early on, which I understand. I understand why they'd want that, but it didn't necessarily have anything to do with the reality of where anything was creatively.
I think that it's a hugely important thing that [the creative process] come first," Abrams said. "A release date is great, but you have to release something great. To me, the new release date is a huge improvement."
"How do you do 'Star Wars' without R2-D2? You know, [R2-D2 and C-3PO] have different agents."
