Lawrence Kasdan & J.J. Abrams: Screenwriting ‘The Force Awakens’
J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan had their work cut out for them when they took on rebooting the most beloved movie franchise of all time. Well, they did just fine.
After breaking EVERY box office record, being loved by critics and audiences alike, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is what we like to call in the business…A BLOCKBUSTER HIT!
I think for this reason the Directors Guild of America invited J.J. Abrams and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan to discuss their experiences making of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
If you want to be a fly on the wall during this remarkable discussion you are in luck. Thanks to the Directors Guild of America, you can watch the entire talk online. They discuss, in detail, what it was like to rebuild the Star Wars universe from the ground up.
