J.J. Abrams On The Tone Of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII

Director J.J. Abrams talks Star Wars: Episode VII. " I remember reading a thing somewhere, someone wrote about just wanting [the new film] to feel real; to feel authentic. I remember I felt that way when I was 11 years old when I saw the first one."

While promoting his latest television effort, Almost Human, director J.J. Abrams fielded a couple of question on Star Wars: Episode VII. The ever evasive Abrams declined to say which films from the original trilogy most inspire his upcoming take on the sprawling space saga. Said Abrams, “Impossible for me to say because it’s going to be an evolving thing. I would say we are working really hard to make a movie that feels as emotional and authentic and exciting as possible. Whatever your favorite Star Wars movie is and how to compare it is really sort of subjective.”

Thus far, there's been a lot discussed and rumored about Episode VII but has Abrams seen anything that he's taken to heart? "It’s been nice see that how important it is and to be reminded how important it is to so many people. We all know that [creator George Lucas'] dream has become almost a religion to some people. I remember reading a thing somewhere, someone wrote about just wanting [the new film] to feel real; to feel authentic. I remember I felt that way when I was 11 years old when I saw the first one. As much of a fairy tale as it was, it felt real. And to me, that is exactly right.”
