Disney’s Star Wars: Episode VII is easily one of the most highly-anticipated movies of all time, and no one understands this pressure more than director J.J. Abrams. He just got Star Trek back on its feet, and now he is in charge of a multi-billion dollar franchise at a new studio with a new direction. There is a lot riding on this movie, and it’s his job as a director to make sure that he gets the most out of his entire cast and crew. And to thank them for their efforts, Abrams wrote everyone involved a heartfelt note that puts his passion for this film on full display.

While it’s easy to think about the suits at Disney treating Star Wars like another notch on their proverbial headboards, Abrams realizes he’s making a film with the best talent in the world as a rabid fanbase watches their every move. This note is more than just a nice gesture; it’s a pep talk to his cast and crew as one of the most scrutinized projects ever gets underway. You can take a look at a picture of the note below (via Screen Crush) and the text copy below that.

Dearest Cast and Crew, What an honor it is to work beside all of you, on Star Wars Ep VII. I can’t thank you enough, for all work past and future. Let’s take good care of not just ourselves, but of each other. Amazing, but true: the world awaits this film. Let’s give ‘em something GREAT. xo JJ
