“The only thing that I’ve seen is the ILM documentary, the Light of Magic, which is a phenomenal documentary, but I haven’t had a chance. I’m sure I’ll get back to you about it, but I saw the trailer when it came out, we were shooting at Pinewood at the time, and it looked fantastic. It’s in, obviously, very great hands, and I’m excited for everybody that’s involved.”

Despite the anticipation and buzz surrounding the Star Wars series, Edwards confessed that he has been occupied with other projects especially his latest one The Creator, and hasn’t found the time to delve into the latest addition to the franchise.
