When J.J. Abrams directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he was his usual secretive self right up until the end. But something seems to have changed in the Star Wars/J.J. Abrams universe since he was tapped to direct Star Wars Episode IX. He's now selling Star Wars spoilers to the highest bidder.
After Ron Howard's masterful use of social media when it came to getting fans engaged with Solo: A Star Wars Story, Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy announced a shift in the company's attitude toward sharing more information with the fans, and we even saw a verified Twitter handle pop up for Abrams (no tweets yet, but we remain hopeful), but J.J.'s appearance on HBO's Night of Too Many Stars definitely qualifies as a new development.
To help raise money for autism, J.J. offered up the plot of Star Wars Episode IX to one lucky bidder. What happened next? Well, you'll just have to watch.
We've reached out to Lucasfilm for an official statement, but we certainly hope "Carlos" got some good tidbits either during this bit or after. Come to think of it, he got three spoilers for the price of one. It's a good deal for a great cause.
