Star Wars: The Force Awakens Director J.J. Abrams Finally Answers a Bunch of Questions

Okay sort of. Abrams was part of Vanity Fair's New Establishment Summit in which big, bold names in business, entertainment, technology and politics gathered at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco to chat about, well, nearly everything. Tesla Motor's Elon Musk, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Girls creator Lena Dunham, former ESPN writer and Grantland found Bill Simmons, photographer Annie Lebovitz and more were on hand.

For our purposes, Abrams' video interview in which he answered questions about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, via iPad (Apple's Jony Ive was one of the guests, after all) from some pretty familiar faces is what we'd like to share. Abrams dishes major, major reveals about the plot of The Force Awakens and describes, in intricate detail, how Kylo Ren is really…okay, maybe not. But the parade of people asking him absurd questions is worth the watch.
