London: JJ Abrams has revealed that he is hoping to make his upcoming sci-fi film `Star Wars Episode 7` as "authentic" as possible.

Abrams told Entertainment Weekly that the people involved in the film are keen to capture the spirit of previous Star Wars outings, Metro.co.uk reported.

The 47-year-old director said that it is going to be an evolving thing and everyone is working really hard to make a movie that feels as emotional and authentic, and exciting as possible.

Abrams added that it was important to be reminded that the saga holds a lot of importance to people as George Lucas`s dream became almost a religion to some fans.

The ` Star Wars Episode 7 `, which is due to begin filming in early 2014, will hit the box office in 2015.
