Star Wars Episode VII will feature more mystery according to J.J. Abrams.

Abrams will take over the director's chair when Star Wars returns to the big screen, and Abrams admits that he is inspired by some of the mystery that exists in the original trilogy.

Speaking to The Times newspaper Abrams said: "I loved how 'Star Wars' had that sense of a world far beyond the borders of what you can see and have been told - it's one of the things it did so brilliantly.

"If you watch the first movie ['Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope'], you don't actually know exactly what the Empire is trying to do. They're going to rule by fear, but you don't know what their end game is.

"The beauty of that movie was that it was an unfamiliar world, and yet you wanted to see it expand and to see where it went."

Star Wars VII was due to hit the big screen in 2015, but it was announced last week that the film may be pushed back twelve months to 2016.

There has been no announcement so far as to who will be on the cast list for the film, the likes of Saoirse Ronan, Ryan Gosling, benedict Cumberbatch and Simon Pegg have all linked to the film at one time or another.

The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' filmmaker and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan recently took over scriptwriting duties on the seventh 'Star Wars' instalment after 'Toy Story 3' writer Michael Arndt left the project.
