Playing J.J. Abrams Insists ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Marketing Hasn’t Spoiled Anything

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is just two weeks away, and marketing has gone FULL. FORCE. (pun intended)

While most of us have completely stopped watching new clips from the movie for fear of delving too far into spoiler territory, director J.J. Abrams tells ET we shouldn’t worry.

“You haven’t seen anything in terms of the movie,” said Abrams. Though he confesses, the media circus has been a bit much.

“There's a lot of noise and it feels a little bit overwhelming to me,” admitted Abrams. “I'm sure that people must be a little bit sick of hearing about it. It's sort of time for the movie to come out already.”

Two. More. Weeks.

Abrams and his wife, Katie McGrath, stepped out for the annual Children’s Defense Fund Beat the Odds Awards, a cause they’ve supported for more than a decade. The event recognizes five Los Angeles high school students for their academic excellence, despite difficult hurdles with which they have faced.

“We’re just honored to be a part of helping give a voice to the voiceless,” said Abrams. “It's an amazing thing to see. These kids tonight at the Beat the Odds [Awards] are honored for their extraordinary success despite, in many cases, horrific obstacles.”
