Harrison Ford May Have Dropped a Tiny ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Spoiler
If you aren’t following the official Star Wars account on Twitter, you’re missing out on a great Q&A with insightful and hilarious answers from director J.J. Abrams and the cast of The Force Awakens.

The trailers and TV spots haven’t featured any scenes in which Rey wields a lightsaber, but that’s exactly the kind of thing you’d want to save for the full movie. One of the TV spots does include a brief moment where Han is handing a lightsaber to Rey, though.
Here are a few more entertaining moments from the evening:
Although Hamill was not participating in the Q&A (since he’s not allowed to give any As, really), he did submit a question for Abrams:
Speaking of Abrams, the director gave a shout out to acclaimed indie film Tangerine, which has been generating a bit of awards buzz and was shot entirely on an iPhone:
Boyega knows who shot first:
Abrams has some explaining to do:
