Disney wants Star Wars 7 director to helm the last film of the new trilogy Disney/Lucasfilm

In his recent interview, Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams has given an update on the film's current production status and also speaks about how leaked spoilers will ruin things for fans.

Abrams quite successfully managed to keep Benedict Cumberbatch's role in Star Trek Into Darkness a secret. But unfortunately, the filmmaker seems to be struggling to prevent his Star Wars story details from leaking online.

"The level of scrutiny is pretty much unprecedented for me," he told the News website. "My dream is that, despite so many rumours — many of which are true, many of which are untrue — when people see the movie, they see something that hasn't been completely ruined for them by having read spoilers they might not have wanted to read."

Abrams is currently busy with the post-production of the film which is set to release in another nine months. "We're still cutting it, but I could not be more excited," he said.

Meanwhile, fans are also wondering whether Star Wars: The Force Awakens will have a post-credits scene. The original trilogy, as well as George Lucas' prequel movies, didn't have any post-credits scenes but now that the franchise is under Disney - where their subsidiary Marvel is notorious for featuring end credit scenes to connect their films - there is a strong chance that a special scene teasing the plot of the next instalment or the spinoff movie Star Wars: Rogue One, might just pop up during the end credits roll.

No official indication of a post-credits scene has been made as yet by either the studio, director JJ Abrams or any cast member.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will release on 18 December, 2015.
