J.J. Abrams and Domhnall Gleeson Talks Starkiller Base and General Hux in New Interview

Incase you missed it, Entertainment Weekly is sharing new information on the highly anticipated STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS all week. There’s 4 new covers featuring Finn, Rey, Han, Threepio and R2-D2 as well. It’s really exciting stuff and while it’s been spoiler-free, it’s brought new light onto specific areas in STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Today’s information brought us a little bit more info on a certain character and place aka Starkiller Base and General Hux! The two have been pretty mysterious so far, but thanks to J.J. Abrams and Domhnall Gleeson, we’ve got a little sneak peak as to what the two have in common.

Here’s some highlights:

“It is very much — and it’s acknowledged as such in the movie — apparently another Death Star,” Abrams says. “But what it’s capable of, how it works, and what the threat is, is far greater than what the Death Star could have done. Starkiller Base is another step forward, technologically speaking, in terms of power.” – J.J. Abrams


His disdain for idiosyncrasy applies to allies, too. You might assume the cold, calculating General Hux would be on good terms with Kylo Ren, Adam Driver’s emotion-driven, Darth Vader-obsessed enforcer for the First Order. But you’d be wrong.

There is tension in the ranks of the leadership. Consider them… frenemies.

“He’s kind of opposite Kylo Ren,” Gleeson says. “They have their own relationship, which is individual and unusual. One of them is strong in different ways than the other. They’re both vying for power.” – Domhnall Gleeson
