The 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' Script Is So Great, J.J. Abrams Regrets Not Directing It

By Matt O'Bryant

Recently J.J. Abrams best buddy Greg Grunberg, who plays X-Wing pilot Snap Wexley in Star Wars: The Force Awakens revealed what J.J.'s thoughts on Rian Johnson's script for Star Wars: Episode VIII were.

Check it out below:

He [J.J. Abrams] read it [Episode VIII script] and said something he never, ever says,” Grunberg, who plays pilot Snap Wexley in the new film, tells The Post’s Comic Riffs. “He said: ‘It’s so good, I wish I were making it.’

“He may have said something one time on ‘Lost,’ with Damon [Lindelof, the co-creator],” continues Grunberg, whose credits on Abrams series include “Lost” and “Felicity,” “but I never hear him express regret like that.”

Grunberg also notes that for his own scenes during the climactic action of “The Force Awakens,” he was given a list of lines to say while sitting in his pilot’s gimbal. “It was lines like,’ ‘He’s on my left!’ and ‘I got him!’ and ‘Poe!’ I was told to also say, ‘I’ve been hit!’ but I refused to. I wasn’t going to go down.
