J.J. Abrams says 'Star Wars' hopes are too high

Since it was first announced, anticipation has been building and building for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", but with expectations so high, can it live up to the hype?

"No. How can anything live up any expectation like that? But what it can do is, I think, introduce unbelievable actors turning incredible performances in a world that has visually the most incredible effects I've ever seen with music written by John Williams which breaks your heart and soars. I've always felt like what George did and the first time it ever happened, there's no way that I can imagine anything touching the magic of what he did and yet we all did the best we could to make that happen," Star Wars director, J.J. Abrams said.

The big secret surrounding the film at present is 'where is Luke Skywalker?'?

"This question is part of the story as well and it's something that feels appropriate given the movie but it's not set up as a mystery, it's just what our narrative is, so if it's driving anyone crazy, apologies, but it's mostly about wanting to protect the experience for the people who might go see the movie. They get to see something that's not a confirmation but rather an actual experience," Abrams added.

With even some of the key cast having not seen the film yet, secrecy abounds until 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' hits cinemas.
