There are a lot of questions floating around about Star Wars Episode VII, and Director, JJ Abrams isn’t giving up many details. Still, he did sit down with EW to talk a little bit about the feel of the movie.
First, on how his film will compare to the previous six:
“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.”
On Advice that he’s received on making the movie:
“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.”
