“Star Wars” 7 may not be heavily focused on computer graphics and special effects, which are characteristic of many recent sci-fi movies, but it focuses on practical effects and storyline. One of the cast members in the upcoming movie, Adam Driver, revealed what it felt like working in the film.
“Star Wars” 7 is “all about character and story,” Adam Driver said. He was talking about how the director, J.J Abrams, was approaching the movie. The actor made the comments speaking to TheWallStreetJournal regarding the movie projects he is currently working on.
Sometimes, the audience may find it difficult to relate to a movie based in an alien world, but according to Adam Driver, “Star Wars” 7 is “still very human.” Apparently, the first thing the director described about the movie was that it was driven by characters and story.
“Star Wars” 7 will be relying heavily on practical effects rather than computer graphics. One of the very first official videos from the production sets of the movie showed an old alien carrying some birds while J. J. Abrams spoke about the Force for Change initiative. This marks a departure from the recent trilogy, which relied heavily on graphics, and return to practical effects, which was popular during the original trilogy.
Massive sets have reportedly been built to make the upcoming movie look more realistic. Many of the reported leaks from the production sets show the efforts being put for the movie. A recently leaked image of the movie’s filming location shows a familiar spaceship which was seen in the original trilogy.
J.J. Abrams also tweeted a picture from one of the sets of the movie expressing his desire to buy the recently launched smart watch from Apple. The image had a reflection which showed the picture was taken inside one of the ships of the Empire. Commenting on the picture, many fans speculate it could be a new Death Star, a massive space station capable of destroying entire planets. Click here to see the picture.
“Star Wars” 7 is slated to be released on Dec. 18, 2015. Some of the characters from the original trilogy who will be returning include Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Leia, Chewbacca, R2-D2 and C-3PO. The roles played by Adam Driver, Gewndoline Christie, Andy Serkis and others have still not been revealed.
