"A new report says that the director for Star Wars: Episode VII has been found and it’s none other than J.J. Abrams. The Wrap is reporting the huge news, saying that Abrams has agreed to direct the highly-anticipated film (to say the least) after months of being courted by new Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy. Back in November, Abrams specifically said he was not going to do the film (indicating he had been asked), but as The Wrap puts it, “The lure of the Jedi was too strong.”

More to come..."

So, how does everyone feel about this?

I for one am excited. Although, how can he hope to do both Star Trek AND Star Wars. This makes my brain hurt.

I kind of wish he'd only done Star Wars and not touched Star Trek. It seems more like his style.

Will his endings be as worthless and dumb as Lost, where people wasted also a decade of their lives watching

To be fair, he had very little to do with the show after the pilot episode.

Not to mention the show only went 6 seasons. This just looks like the kind of thing you say because you've seen other people say it on the internet...not because you actually watched the show.

What's next? He's going to direct the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special? This does make me want to cry out like Charlie Brown.

Maybe one should not put their name/reputation on something one do not have any creative insight or work in it.

Maybe we could get a Cloverfield like Star Wars...


I don't understand why they can't just let a franchise end properly and be regulated to history as a "masterpiece" or whatnot

Not that Star Wars was ever that great, but its time to just let it go and come up with new ideas..

Whats next?
Clone Vader, Ghost Vader, Vader X,

This is pretty much perfect. I thought the new Star Trek felt way more like a Star Wars movie than a Star Trek.

I watched it as it aired and it was definitely a colossal waste of time.

Why do they have to make Episode VII? Can't they just start over with something new in the Star Wars universe? They can still use characters from those movies but lets move on to a different storyline.

That said, Count Dookahn!!!

Doesn't every image search eventually lead to titties? If not, it should. Hmmm... start-up idea... www.booble.com?

To play Russian Roulette at work, you turn off Safe Search and type in phrases and see what doesn't bring up porn.

"Panda glue" worked for me the last time I tried it, but that was a while ago and I can't currently confirm either way right now.

Also I want in on your startup.

I'll believe it when J.J. himself or his reps confirm it. Like the IGN article stated, Abrams had already been approached for the role and seemed pretty vehement in not wanting it.

Wow - Booble is "the best adult porn search engine and sex search directory online"- and they even use boobs for the "oo" in the logo. Why are all of the great ideas taken?

Yep...my thoughts exactly. Not to mention dust and fast moving shaky cams of the ships. :(

So I take it someone else will be doing the 3rd (and final)star trek movie?

I'd rather have someone with a track record like Abrams then the original rumor awhile back of Zack Snyder making a Star Wars film with constant slow motion, zoom-in and out action scenes. In the very least it'll be a good popcorn flick, so it'd be stupid to hate on this in anyway.
