During an appearance on “Good Morning America,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” director J.J. Abrams announced that the final cut of the film is complete (via The Hollywood Reporter).
“[Disney CEO] Bob [Iger] says no more changes,” Abrams confirmed.
He also shared his hopes that the film will appeal to young girls and their mothers, saying, “‘Star Wars’ was always a boys thing and a movie that dads could take their sons to, and though that’s still very much the case, I was really hoping that this would be a movie that mothers could take their daughters to as well. I’m looking forward to kids seeing this movie and seeing themselves in it and seeing that they’re capable of doing things that they could never imagine possible.”
“What I hope is that [kids] see a movie that tells them that life is full of unlimited possibility,” he added. “That there’s an incredible sense of, to use a George Lucas term, hope in the world. And that they feel better when they leave than when they got in there.”
Directed by Abrams, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” stars franchise veterans Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker, joined by newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie and Max von Sydow.
The film will be released wide Dec. 16 in France, Dec. 17 in the United Kingdom and Dec. 18 in North America.
