Abrams told Esquire in a recent interview that the film’s release later this month will be the first time that anyone has seen it — other than those involved with the film and, probably, their families.
“Of course I’ve shown it at a friends and family screening, but we’ve never done like a test screening,” Abrams told Esquire.
One rumor earlier this year suggested test screenings for the film were a disaster before Disney CEO Bob Iger asked George Lucas to fix the film. However, if there were no test screenings, then apparently that would prove to be a false rumor.
But, as Abrams revealed to Esquire, no one has seen the final version of the movie.
“Sure, I mean the final, final? No,” he said.
He added: “I have not even gotten to see the final product.”
