Isaac: Star Wars theories off-base

Oscar Isaac has teased that the leaks regarding Star Wars: The Force Awakens are inaccurate.

The Inside Llewyn Davis star, who will play Poe Dameron in the seventh instalment of the sci-fi franchise, said the spoilers surrounding the highly anticipated film will not ruin fans' experiences.

"I don't think these little leaks necessarily ruined watching the trailer. And also, the [plot theories] that get that formulated based on these things - they couldn't be more far off-base," he told Yahoo Movies, adding: " I thought, Don't you want to wait so you can get the real thing? But it creates excitement for it."

Oscar, who has been shooting his scenes in JJ Abrams' movie, admitted there has been tight security around the latest film. He wasn't even sent his script to read ahead of rehearsals.

"They won't even do that. You go to the place, and they have a room with cameras and you sit there and read the script," he said.

"They're incredibly protective, because nowadays, with however many hundreds of blogs and this and that, people are just ravenous for content. So because of that, there has to be such tight security around it. And it gets in the way of the process a bit, but it's understandable."

The 35-year-old, who next stars in JC Chandor's forthcoming crime drama A Most Violent Year, also said getting to sit in the X-Wing fighter plane was "a dream come true".

"It was hard to believe that I was actually sitting in there and doing that," he said. "And it's physical.

"You have to kind of get in touch with that child again that had a little X-Wing and would fly around his room making crazy sounds, you had to tap into that spirit again and that was a lot fun. There was a lot of practical effects. A lot of the stuff they actually made. There wasn't a lot of green screen."

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, also starring Adam Driver, John Boyega and Domhnall Gleeson, will be released in December 2015.
