J.J. Abrams wants Episode VII to feel “authentic”

J. J. Abrams on the set of Star Trek Into Darkness

Well, it’s not a J.J. Abrams quote about Star Wars if it’s not super-vague… The Episode VII director tells Entertainment Weekly that he wants the film to feel “as emotional and authentic and exciting as possible.” Naturally.

“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.”

Alrightly then. I feel like we’ve all learned something here. Or not.

    Well, let’s look on the bright side: It’s only between 21 and 27 more months of Abrams type platitudes and Latino Review style “rumors”. Plus: There’s Rebels to look forward to. Not even to mention the possibility that Lucasfilm might (although they probably won’t) announce something/anything on the upcoming first anniversary of the new era.

    Honestly, though, Lucasfilm: Give us one lousy bit of concept art. By now, I would take the back of a stormtrooper helmet. Or a photo of a director’s chair. Or… anything! #Mildnervousbreakdown

    I am thrilled to hear this. I absolutely want to see the
    vague and mystical Force get an authentic feel ….
