With hungry fans waiting to devour every miniscule morsel of information coming out about Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens, there's a lot of superheated debate about how true the latest chapter in the story will stay to creator 's original vision.
Director just did an interview with Playboy in which he talks about Episode VII and his most recent project heading into theaters, Star Trek Into Darkness. Obviously, the thread of the conversation was about taking on the mantle of two historically rich and well-loved franchises. So far, it would seem that in Star Trek's case, Abrams has proven that he has what it takes to bring something fresh to the table, while still making box office bank and backing up his creative choices with an eye to the fans.
With Star Wars: Episode VII, however, a big concern has been the level of Lucas's potential involvement. Would Abrams even consult Lucas? Abrams spoke out on this topic, saying:
The advantage here is that we still have George Lucas with us to go to and ask questions and get his feedback on things, which I certainly will do.
See? You can stop holding your breath now. Honestly, did we ever doubt that he would somehow have Lucas on board? Check out the lengthy interview to see just how much of a Star Wars fan he really is. Do it. It will put your mind at ease.
