Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the subject of the next Entertainment Weekly cover story, which means the release valve on details has been ever-so-slightly loosened. Earlier today, we got a look at a fresh batch of photos from the insanely anticipated film. Now, director J.J. Abrams, the man of mystery himself, has loosened his lips. The topic is the film’s villain, Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, and he certainly has some interesting things to say.

If you’re the Star Wars fan who loves to be teased with lots of hints and clips about the upcoming movies then J.J. Abrams is basically your Darth Vader. Abrams hates to tease people with lots of hints and clips; he prefers to keep as much of his movies hidden from view for as long as humanly possible. His Bad Robot team practices a code of omerta that would make the Mafia blush.

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’re getting what looks to be a revitalizing installment in the franchise, something to help make the bad memories of the prequel trilogy disappear. It’s an intimidating challenge, but everything we’ve seen in the trailers and heard in early reports leads us to believe that director J.J. Abrams has largely accomplished that impossible task.
