J.J. Abrams Answers Several VERY Important 'Force Awakens' Questions

We really know how to stay on target.

With reporting by Josh Horowitz

As the guy behind "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," director J.J. Abrams has a lot of secrets about what we can expect from the most anticipated movie of the year. But luckily we here at MTV News worked a few Jedi mind tricks and got him to reveal some juicy tidbits of "Star Wars" news.

While on the red carpet for "Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation" last week, we asked Abrams the very important questions we all want to know about "The Force Awakens," such as: Is the infamous "Star Wars Holiday Special" an established part of canon? How much of a jerk is R2-D2 on set? Does Chewbacca ever shave?

Okay, so maybe they aren't the IMPORTANT questions, and maybe Abrams didn't answer them so much as laugh through them because they were ridiculous. But at least we do know this: no, there are no mentions of Midi-chlorians in "The Force Awakens." Good.
