Final Mix of The Force Awakens is Complete
Last night at a fundraiser hosted by The Late Show host Stephen Colbert, J.J. Abrams announced that had finished the final mix of Star Wars: The Force Awakens at 2:30 AM (PST) Saturday morning. There was still other film-related things to do on the movie though before it was ready for it’s release on December 18th.
During the 2-hour event, Abrams also promised the audience that he has indeed cut back on his use of lens flares in the latest chapter of the Star Wars saga.
“The Force Awakens” will have some lens flare, but only when it’s unavoidable or necessary, Abrams said. “This is not the movie for that,” he said of his former trademark flourish. “These are not the flares you’re looking for.”
