Star Wars: Episode VII was announced in late 2012, and slowly added updates throughout 2013. Though the updates were sparse, the rumors were not but the confirmations have yet to start. We can (and will) continue to report on any news for the upcoming 2015 film, but the people behind the film won't offer any official news for the time being. In a recent interview, director J.J. Abrams addressed the reasoning behind keeping everything pretty secretive in terms of his new movie.

In a new interview with The Daily Mail, Abrams (a filmmaker known for his secrecy) compared the upcoming Star Wars movie to his latest film, Star Trek Into Darkness, in terms of secrecy.

"[With the Khan secret in Star Trek] we were trying to preserve the unexpected for the audience, but it came across as if we were trying to be too clever," he explained. "Star Wars is in every way a different animal. It's always been a more open, fan-engaged universe than I've been used to, so I'm sure there'll be some sort of compromise. But it feels to me like there's a purity in not knowing every little thing."

When asked about his production company Bad Robot and how nothing leaks from inside the office, he said: "Are you kidding me? My god. My office... I'm working on the Star Wars script today and the people in my office have covered up all my windows with black paper. I guess they wanted to make sure no one could see what I was doing ... It seems rather extreme."

So it looks like the odds of spoilers leaking are slim, but hopefully we'll be getting official updates on the film soon.
