J.J. Abrams Discusses the Importance of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII

2015 is going to be one epic year for film. While promoting his new Bad Robot series "Almost Human", we were lucky enough to get a little "Star Wars" tidbit from fanboy favorite J.J. Abrams. Leaving Captain Kirk and the "Star Trek" crew to reunite us with Han Solo and the galaxy far, far away, Abrams discusses his authentic approach and the the importance of introducing more films to fans the right way.

Abrams stated, "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 felt real. And to me, that is exactly right."

While Abrams wouldn't quite pinpoint a tone or vibe to his new installment, he did say "it’s going to be an evolving thing". He continued, "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."

As felt in his "Star Trek" films, it's clear that Abrams takes the material for "Star Wars" and the diehard built in fans, very seriously. He's exactly the kind of man we want at the helm to expand our beloved Universe. I hope.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
