Rian Johnson knows the preview will be tough for fans to resist, but be warned that the spoilers may be with you if you watch.
Some fans might prefer to be surprised about what Rey is up to (or who she may be related to), but the new trailer will be tough to resist.
Rian Johnson was asked by a fan on Twitter whether fans should avoid the trailer for fear of spoilers. While he didn’t come out and urge that no one tune in, he did hint that fans who watch will no longer be able to come into the film “completely clean” of spoilers.
But note that if you can’t resist, Johnson also thinks it’s so well-done that he used six O’s in “gooooood.”
I a legitimately torn. If you want to come in clean, absolutely avoid it. But it’s gooooood….. https://t.co/Y29K5yz8i4
This isn’t the first time Johnson has leaned toward the spoiler-free approach. In August, he tweeted that while more information was certainly on the way, he “fully endorse(d)” fans avoiding the news.
More stuff is coming, that’s the nature of the beast. But I fully endorse avoiding everything you can from now till December! https://t.co/G9D8qtq5w4
His star, Mark Hamill, aka Luke Skywalker, agreed with his boss’ sentiments.
I fully endorse this @rianjohnson endorsement: AVOID EVERYTHING YOU CAN FROM NOW TILL DECEMBER!!!!! #WordsOfWisdom #WellWorthWaitingForVIII https://t.co/OLgmuDpxGg
