Heartwarming / J. J. Abrams

  • His tributes to Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin after their deaths in 2015 and 2016, respectively.
  • Abrams, despite his over-protectiveness before his movies' releases, has offered sneak peaks of his movies to terminally ill fans before they died:
    • Upon hearing of a Star Trek fan was on his deathbed, and wanted to see Star Trek Into Darkness before he died...JJ promptly arranged to have the fan see the film—some time before the official release. What a guy!
    • And he pulled the exact same thing again with a dying Star Wars fan who feared he wouldn't live to the official release date of The Force Awakens.
