J.J. Abrams Talks Star Wars.

J.J Abrams briefly spoke with Empire about his plans for Episode 7. Read what he said after the jump.

Empire: What’s the plan for Episode VII

Abrams: “I don’t know because we’re just getting started. So it’s a great question that I hope I’ll have a good answer to when I know what the answer is. There are infinitely more questions than answers right now, but to me, they’re not that dissimilar. Though I came at these both from very different places, where they both meet is a place of ‘Ooh, that’s really exciting.’ And even though I was never a Star Trek fan, I felt like there was a version of it that would make me excited, that I would think ‘that’s cool, that feels right, I actually would want to see that.
“How we were going to get there, what the choices were going to be, who was going to be in it – all of those things I knew would have to be figured out, but it was all based on a foundation of this indescribable, guttural passion for something that could be. It’s a similar feeling that I have with Star Wars. I feel like I can identify a hunger for what I would want to see again and that is an incredibly exciting place to begin a project. The movies, the worlds could not be more different but that feeling that there’s something amazing here is the thing that they share.”

Empire: What was your first reaction when asked to direct Episode 7?

Abrams: “My knee-jerk reaction was that I’m in the middle of working on the Star Trek movie and I can’t even consider it. But then time went by and I got further along working on the movie and getting to a place where I had done most of the heavy lifting. So when I met with Kathy Kennedy we just started discussing it and I was able to actually engage in the conversation. I went down to tell Katie, my wife and I said ‘I had just a very interesting conversation with Kathy.’ That was the beginning.
“I will say that Steven [Spielberg] was very encouraging of Star Wars. It’s funny because I talked to him about it and it turned out he knew all about what was going on.”

    Internet marketing has become a complicated discipline
    that involves a great deal of theoretical knowledge in combination with applied techniques.
    Make the process of ordering be stress-free to complete at all
    times as possible. On the other hand, someone driving a car
    who sees a billboard, will at best be interested
    and might decide to get more information at some time.

    No hug, even little hook shoulder continuously, is always a lots of silence, mostly lovers. Sometimes I think he expecting a lot of for me. For fear that his or her to his disappointment, makes the existing range farther. With such a mood to be friends with him carefully, to make me think very feelings towards your ex also become weak. As I reported sooner, I still love him or her, but I can’t think of doing nothing also let him alert to the behavior of really like.

    Recherche pour le fonctionnement des coupons en ligne peut 锚tre une t芒che difficile. Bien qu’il existe beaucoup de sites web promo autour, tr猫s peu d’entre eux offrent vraiment quelque chose de valeur. La grande majorit茅 est plein de bons plans qui ne fonctionnent plus. Bien s没r, ce sont g茅n茅ralement assez merdique. Ceux-ci peuvent 锚tre tr猫s frustrant quand vous cherchez un coupon qui fonctionne r茅ellement. Plusieurs fois, je peux recommander la position droite pour les plus grands sites de code promo. Cependant cela ne signifie pas que je re莽ois constamment ce que j’essaie de trouver. Quand on consid猫re les nombreux diff茅rents rabais qui sont recherch茅s par jour, il est vraiment tr猫s rare de trouver quelque chose qui fonctionne. L’une des nombreuses raisons pour cela est que la majorit茅 des vendeurs tout simplement ne fournit pas de codes de r茅duction en ce moment. Offres pour Hollister sont assez simples 脿 d茅couvrir si. Il vous suffit de visiter le site internet j’ai parl茅 avant de les d茅couvrir. J’esp猫re que cette 茅criture jusqu’脿 vous a vraiment aid茅!

    Black Friday has turned into Black Thursday for many Philadelphia area retailers, and some local employees aren very happy about it. While some retail workers across the country have even started petitions in the hopes of keeping their stores closed on the Thanksgiving holiday, for many local retailers it business as usual on Nov. 22.
