I'm pretty sure he's just saying that for show cause people keep bothering him and have been ever since 1977. Jett said him and JJ talked like crazy and he was INCREDIBLY involved in The Clone Wars show.

I agree. It feels more like a "I'm not leaking anything, bug someone else" motive than anything.

We are talking about a guy that wanted his studio to "approve" anything and everything Star Wars. A guy that sold the franchise, and still needed to "hand select" who would take control. At no point did Disney push him out at all. So why would he randomly stop all of that and go "nah, haven't bothered with it" when the most important movie is right around the corner?

I didn't mean that he was scared of leaking something if he said something. Just that the only things people say to him that aren't his family or friends are probably about Star Wars and he's tired of talking about it to random people.
