J.J Abrams wants 'authentic' Star Wars

Filmmaker J.J Abrams has admitted his only ambition for the new Star Wars movie is to make it as ''authentic'' as possible.

The 47-year-old producer and director, who is set to helm the highly anticipated seventh instalment in the space saga, said that he understands there is a lot of pressure on him from hardcore sci-fi fans to make a good movie.

Abrams said: ''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.

ContactMusic further quote J.J as saying: ''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.''

Star Wars Episode VII is due for release in May 2015.
