J.J Abrams Says He’s Targeting An Emotional & Authentic STAR WARS: EPISODE VII’ Film

Paramount Pictures Celebrates The Blu-ray And DVD Debut Of "Star Trek: Into Darkness"

J.J Abrams has spoken recently with EW about his much anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII which is currently on track for a 2015 release date.

“It’s been nice seeing how important [STAR WARS] is and to be reminded how important it is to so many people. We all know that [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 was real. And to me, that is exactly right.” 


Abrams also says it’s hard to name a specific tone for the film 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.” 


The film features a script by Michael Arndt and is rumored to focus on a new generation of heroes and could feature appearances by Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford in older incarnations of their beloved characters from the original film trilogy.
