Last night Yahoo Japan reported that a special press conference for “The Force Awakens” was going to be held in Japan on April 30th with Kathleen Kennedy and Daisy Ridley making an appearance. Well the press conference did take place last night in Japan, where the Japanese press had their first opportunity to ask questions about the new “Star Wars” movie to the head of Lucasfilm, and one of the film’s stars.
Below is some of what was reported so far from the Japanese press at the event, via StarWars7 News.

Mrs. Kennedy emphasized that “family is what we inherited. Family of Saga” is the base of this new trilogy.
Not much new info was revealed, but while many of us fans are expecting family to be a major theme in the new trilogy, this is one of the first times we’ve heard Kathleen Kennedy talk about that being the case.
