J.J. Abrams: George Lucas asks Force Awakens director Star Wars question

‘Oh, George.’

Not even George Lucas seems to know what J.J. Abrams has planned for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The Star Wars creator, and director of four of the franchise’s installments, is one of a number of celebrities to ask Abrams a question in a new video posted by Vanity Fair.

“J.J., what happened to Darth Vader’s grandchildren?” Lucas asks via a video that Abrams plays on an iPad.

“Oh, George,” Abrams says in the clip, “this is great.” After a laugh, Abrams responds: “You tell me man. You made all this sh– up. “

Lucas wasn’t the only person to ask about Star Wars — Jared Leto wanted to know why he wasn’t playing Chewbacca, for instance? — but Abrams, master of the Mystery Box, kept his lips sealed. Maybe that’s because celebrities weren’t asking the right questions: If Kylo Ren isn’t a Sith, what is the extent of his Force powers? Who else outside of the Jedi and Sith can tap into the Force? Did Stephen Colbert really guess the Force Awakens¬†plot? Mysteries.¬†Watch below.
