JJ Abrams on STAR WARS: EPISODE VII: 'I Want to Do the Fans Proud'

In a recent interview with E! Online, newly-appointed STAR WARS: EPISODE VII director J.J. Abrams spoke about what it meant to him to take on the upcoming project. "It really is an incredible thing, It's wildly surreal," he shared. "It's obviously way too early to talk specifics, but I'm excited to actually start it."

Speaking with The Huffington Post, the director spoke about his goals for the highly-anticipated sequel. "I can just say what I want to do: I want to do the fans proud. I want to make sure the story is something that touches people. And we're just getting started. I'm very excited."

Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled to hit theaters sometime in 2015 with a script by Michael Arndt. Disney and Lucasfilm plan to release a new installment of the trilogy every other year.

J.J. Abrams is well known for his work in the genres of action, drama, and science fiction. He wrote and produced feature films before co-creating the television series Felicity (1998-2002). He also created Alias (2001-2006) and co-created Lost (2004-2010), Fringe (2008-present), Undercovers (2010) and produced the television series Person of Interest (2011-present), Alcatraz (2012) and Revolution (2012-present).

He directed the films Mission: Impossible III (2006), Star Trek (2009), and Super 8 (2011), and produced the films Cloverfield (2008), Morning Glory (2010) and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011). Many of the films he directed/produced are by Paramount, while his television series were co-produced by either Warner Bros. or ABC Studios.
