LAS VEGAS (AP) — If the force is with die-hard fans Wednesday, J.J. Abrams will give away a few clues to his vision for the seventh live-action "Star Wars" film.

The acclaimed science-fiction filmmaker is expected to give an opening talk at an annual video game industry conference in Las Vegas.

He is expected to discuss multiplatform storytelling with Valve president Gabe Newell at the Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain Summit at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Abrams has become a trusted steward of beloved fantasy universes with well-received additions to the "Star Trek" and "Mission: Impossible" franchises.

"Star Wars" creator George Lucas facilitated the latest round of spin-offs when he sold his Lucasfilm empire The Walt Disney Co. for $4.05 billion last fall.

"Episode VII" is due out in the summer of 2015.
