J.J. Abrams set to direct “Star Wars: Episode VII”!
News broke last night on all news channels about J.J. Abrams (creator of Lost, Fringe and Director of Star Trek (2009), Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), Mission: Impossible III and Super 8) has signed to direct Star Wars: Episode VII.
This is huge news. I honestly didn’t think he would sign to direct another “Star” themed film. When I first read the title to the first article I saw, I figured Paramount had signed Abrams to a third Star Trek feature and then realized it was Star Wars!
In all honesty, if you look at the themes in his first Star Trek movie, they are very reminiscent of Star Wars, so this is a no brainer. I just want to see something from Star Wars Episode VII now!
