J. J. Abrams Talks End-Credit Scene For ‘The Force Awakens’ | Film News
In the modern world of cinema, post-credit scenes have become popular, especially amongst superhero movies, with Marvel Studios having a reputation for doing so. But this has extended outside the Marvel universe in recent times, with end credit scenes being used for the X-Men movies and the latest Terminator film. And this latest craze has not slipped the minds of Star Wars fans, who are beginning to ask if it was possible that director J J Abrams could have slipped in an end credit teaser for the next installment.
The subject was brought to Abrams’ attention at a Star Wars: The Force Awakens press conference in Los Angeles yesterday. The director was asked outright if fans could expect one, or an Easter Egg at the end of the film. He quickly dismissed the idea, simply stating:
“No, there’s not. All the scenes are actually in the movie.”
So there you have it. Many fans will be disappointed by this news, but it doesn’t really come as a surprise considering the previous trilogies were absent of end credit scenes, and kudos to Abrams for stamping out the idea for the reason of everything that fans need to know starts from the beginning of the film, and ends at the end of the film – and I believe his faith that it doesn’t need any extras is ultimately a positive.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in cinemas December 17.
