While was out hawking Almost Human, his new futuristic badass cop drama coming to FOX in a few weeks, he spoke about plans for his delicate vision for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens:
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.
The director also noted that the new flick, written by Michael Arndt, is a work-in-progress, so the ultimate look and feel will be an organic, evolutionary process:
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.
True: let's not try to judge what should or shouldn't be done based on what we think the franchise should or shouldn't look like. Just let Abrams do his thing. We all have our favourites, so let's get ready for the new generation. I mean, The Phantom Menace anyone? Thought so.
