It is so close now, just days away from the most anticipated film of recent history, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by the popular JJ Abrams. On this special week as the reviews and buzz begins to reach climax heavy weight director Steven Spielberg confirmed whilst chatting to 60 minutes, “oh, JJ is terrified! There’s a lot of pressure on JJ to start paying Disney back for, you know, the franchise they bought from George Lucas“.
There is indeed a lot of pressure and expectation is sky high. Abrams himself added that “you just know that there will be people, no matter what you do, that will have issues with some aspect. You just know there is some number that is being thrown out there that will not be hit. You just know“. Everyone may not like it but everyone will be going to the cinema to see it with an enormous number of pre-booked ticket sales. It cant be as bad as The Phantom Menace can it?
