In an interview with IGN, Actor Oscar Isaac spoke about his role in the upcoming Star Wars film, the technology used to make certain parts of the film, living out his childhood dream, and watching Harrison Ford play Star War’s Han Solo.
Talking about the technology used, Oscar said:
“There was just so much love poured into it and so much care. The thing is, when you rely on the latest technology to tell your story — and that’s it — that dates. It can date badly. Whereas, when you actually make the stuff, I think there’s something about that that is a little bit more ageless.”
The actor then goes on to talk about what it was like to be on the set of the film:
“It was totally like living out a childhood dream. Being on those sets and being surrounded by those people — talking to Anthony Daniels, seeing him getting suited up, and Peter Mayhew putting on the suit again — that was incredible.”
The conversation then shifted to Harrison Fords Han Solo character:
“If you watch Harrison Ford in [the originals], he doesn’t give a f***, you know? [Laughs] He’s just being a real person. He’s funny. You can even hear little ad-libs and things like that… [It’s similar on this film]. There’s less of a formality, I think.
I think the biggest thing, the most important part of the story, is the emotional aspect of it. I think that’s what most of us were keyed into: ‘What is the emotion of the thing?’ The spectacle is secondary to that.”
IGN also asked Isaac about his thoughts on the controversial black stormtrooper situation involving Actor John Boyega, Attack the Block – great film. Isaac answered the question saying:
“What’s great about it is, it’s like, ‘Are you a racist? Here’s a perfect way of revealing that to everyone!’ [Laughs] What I loved about the trailer too is, like, the giant middle finger of the first thing you see, right off the bat: John’s face — BAM! So it is, yeah, ‘Just deal with it.'”
