J.J. Abrams may well be out of the race to direct Star Wars VII admitting that he want to see the film as a moviegoer.

The Star Trek director has, along with a whole host of others, being linked to the seventh movie in the Star Wars franchise.

But it seems that the director is keen to seen the film with the rest of the Star Wars fans rather than be a part of it.

Speaking to Hollywood Life the director said: "Star Wars is one of my favourite movies of all time.

"I frankly feel that - I almost feel that, in a weird way, the opportunity for whomever it is to direct that movie, it comes with the burden of being that kind of iconic movie and series."

"I was never a big Star Trek fan growing up, so for me, working on Star Trek didn't have any of that, you know, almost fatal sacrilege, and so, I am looking forward more then anyone to the next iterations of Star Wars, but I believe I will be going as a paying moviegoer!"

Abrams is the second director in as many days to rule himself out of the job as Steven Spielberg has also said that he will not be in the director's chair for the movie.

Star War VII will be the first movie in the series since Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith.

Disney bought LucasFilm last month and announced that there were three more movies on the horizon.
