Watch Jared Leto ask J.J. Abrams why he didn’t cast him as Chewbacca in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ and more

In a new video, Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ director J.J. Abrams gets asked many Star Wars questions, from actor Jared Leto to director George Lucas. Find out who asks the most bizarre question.

In probably one of the funniest bits that J.J. Abrams has released about his upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, actors and celebrities ask him many questions about the movie (and even some about Lost). Watch as Abrams answers or get stumped by them:

We loved when Cloverfield actor T.J. Miller asked why J.J. Abrams had only rebooted Star Trek and Star Wars and not Cloverfield. For reference, Abrams produced Cloverfield, but didn’t direct the monster movie.

Some of the other good questions came from Star Wars creator George Lucas, as well as Jared Leto asking why Abrams didn’t cast him as Chewy, despite being able to grow hair all over his body. His answer was that Chewy was already cast before he joined.

Another bright spot was when J.J. Abrams saw that Katie Couric was about to ask him a question, and he seemed more surprised that he was actually asked a question by the journalist. Let us know which question was your favorite from the video.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ release date is set for December 18, 2015. Early screenings are available at 7 p.m. on December 17.
