‘Star Wars Episode VII': To Leak Or Not To Leak Concept Art
If Star Wars Episode VII director J.J. Abrams has a spy among his rank, he should fire them. This week, dozens of concept art images that are allegedly being used in the much anticipated sequel were leaked online, and there was a definitive mixed reaction.
In the age of 24/7 news and the internet, everyone is out for themselves, and if someone who is working for Abrams has decided that it’s a good idea to leak major spoilers to keep fans happy, then they were mistaken. It’s one thing to follow news about casting and happenings with the production, but it’s a completely different thing to ruin a film that fans have been waiting to see for a long, long time.
If these are indeed from Star Wars Episode VII, J.J. must be livid. After all, he has thrown some bones our way with that little game he has going on with Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder. He’s also been nice enough to tweet teasers that truly get fans’ blood boiling with excitement.
Unfortunately, if these images are legit, people will see them, and even though they look very cool, they take away from the build up to the December 18, 2015 release. Star Wars Episode VII will continue the original trilogy of the 70s and 80s, and fans have literally been waiting for decades to find out what happens to Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Carrie Fisher’s characters in a movie.
