As Burman recalled, “There was originally going to be a scene with most of our alien species, which would shoot towards the end of production, but J.J. always had a problem with it, because it was like, ‘Here’s our big cantina scene where all the aliens show up!’

“J.J. didn’t want it to be a Star Wars kind of scene, so he ultimately scrapped it and changed it to just one alien. For the rest of the aliens we were going to make, he said, ‘Let’s pepper them throughout the film from the beginning,’ so instead of having more than three months to get them all done, we suddenly had to produce them in a matter of weeks.”
So much for the theory that Abrams would turn it into a Star Wars clone.....

Thanks to Ron Salon for the signature banner!
