J.J. Abrams Hints At The Possible Tone For His Take On STAR WARS EPISODE VII

Star Wars Episode VII director J.J. Abrams responds to a recent video featuring "4 Rules to Make Star Wars Great Again", hinting that his take on the seventh instalment in the franchise will go back to basics. However, he adds that he appreciates many younger fans identify with the prequels...



"I would say that [the video conveys] a feeling that we share very much," J.J. Abrams told The Times when they asked him about the "4 Rules to Make Star Wars Great Again" featured above. As for his take on the iconic franchise, Abrams went on to talk more about what he loved about the original trilogies, perhaps giving us an idea at the tone he wil be striving for. "I loved how Star Wars had that sense of a world far beyond the borders of what you can see and have been told," he said. "It's one of the things it did so brilliantly. If you watch the first movie, you don't actually know exactly what the Empire is trying to do. They're going to rule by fear - but you don't know what their end game is. The beauty of that movie was that it was an unfamiliar world, and yet you wanted to see it expand and to see where it went." However, Abrams can also relate to the younger generation of Star Wars fans whose first exposure to a Galaxy Far, Far Away may have been with the prequels. "A lot of kids who saw all the prequels when they were young really do identify with those movies as much as my generation identified with the originals." Hopefully Abrams manages to strike a perfect balance between both trilogies.
