For fans hoping to hear more news on the upcoming “Star Wars” movie, you’re in luck.
“We are working really hard to make a movie that feels as emotional and authentic and exciting as possible,” says Abrams.
As a big “Star Wars” fan himself, Abrams knows how big of a task he has ahead of him.
If he screws it up, there will be a ton of angry fanboys.
“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,” says Abrams. “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.”
It sounds like he has the right mindset about the direction he wants to take the new series.
The new “Star Wars” is currently set for an unspecified 2015 release date.
