J.J. Abrams did an interview with the BBC as part of the promotional tour for Star Trek Into Darkness, and he naturally had something to say about Star Wars along the way. Here's a snippet from the BBC article:
A self-confessed Star Wars fan, Abrams said he would have to try to mitigate his "geeky fan-boy" feelings about his forthcoming project.
"It's just about about approaching it from as authentic a place as possible, and not trying to apply what you believe or think, as much as trying to filter everything and get at it from the core of the characters.
"[It should be] what you deeply want to see, never what you assume the fans might like."
