Abrams: Please don't mess this up. Love, Everyone." You can see the short animation below, which gives four steps for restoring Star Wars to greatness--what they boil down to, though, is returning to the sense of Star Wars as a Western, where danger and violence can be around every corner and the characters are morally gray in spite of the whole "light side/dark side" thing. Check it out below.
