Here is a quick preview of those that missed the last updates of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The movie is releasing on December 18, 2015 after ten long years. The original cast is joined by some brilliant new characters to bring the magic back to the screen. Check this out for more information on what has been going on so far.

Movie Revelation by the Stuntman Himself

The movie has been kept under wraps for long and the producers of the movie are making sure that no news gets leaked out. But quite recently, Toth Gyuala who is playing the role of Kylo Ren in The Force Awakens made quite a startling revelation. He revealed that Director J J Abram’s made sure that the Pinewood studios remained shut throughout. Further, he stated that he was not permitted to go through the whole script even though he filmed several of the Driver lightsaber battles.

Apparently all the cast members were each given a unique magnetic pass. They were tracked by an escort to keep a watch on them just in case they wander off to the secret rooms. Security was quite vigilant and the whole set was kept under high protection and observation to keep away from peeping eyes. All the cast were made to sign on a 20 page confidentiality contract clause to be part of The Force Awakens. That was not all. There was a secret alarm and around 50 security guards would appear before them who put them in black hoods and sheets. Toth confesses that even after working for six months for the movie, he didn’t know the details of what happened in the film.

In an inclusive interview with Index magazine in Hungary he states, “The entire story of the film is still a black hole for me for example. I will only put together all the pieces in the cinema on full screen; I still have a lot of white spots. The characters appeared through code names not to be able to identify ahead of time by accident.

Of course, there were so vicious fans that flew drones in the studio courtyard to film the outside scenery. There was also a separate alarm code in such cases: which released 50 security guards on the set, everyone was put in black hoods and sheets and led them to the tents that the drone cannot take pictures of them.
