Latest Star Wars rumours seem to have been focused on who would direct the latest in the franchise. Now it has been chosen (Imagine I said that in the style of Yoda….) JJ Abrams!

Well, I would have to agree that it would seem one of the better choices of director, I’m no fan of Trek, but the reboot was pretty cool. He admits that growing up he was more of a Star Wars fan than Star Trek, so hopefully he’ll kick ass!

Trust me, it could have been worse, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating, as they say. This will either make or break him in legendary terms in movie history.

we will see….

    Some will always not like it, I’m quite looking forward to an new addition to the franchise.

      I think he should do good, he did good with Trek, so he should come good with Wars, Hopefully!

    Still wish they could have roped Joss Whedon for the spot. He knows Star Wars, he practically lifted the whole rebels and evil empire theme for Firefly.

      Yeah he did a great job with the Avengers and I agree he would have done well heading the new film.
      With the Disney ownership of both Marvel and Lucasfilm, you never know, he might get a go at one of the later movies if Abrams fails to deliver on number 7!
