    [Star Wars] JJ Abrams to direct new Star Wars Movie!

    Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-21214040

    There has been a lot of discussion over the last few months, about how Disney & LucasFilms have killed off a great story, but this move fills me with a lot more hope then I previously had.

    I've loved the last few films Disney has managed to push out (Tron Legacy & Avengers) and I love what JJ Abrams did with Lost & Star Trek.

    Question; Do you have faith in the next Star Wars Film being awesome, now that JJ Abrams is directing it?

    Don't forget to mention <Fringe> , another one of his succesful series which just ended (with a real ending, not a cliffhanger ;p) after 5 seasons!

    So yea you could say i'm quite stoked to hear this news! I was never really fussed about the new star wars movies anyways, it's great and I never got the qq around it!

    I've never watched Fringe myself, so I just included what I knew.

    I've always loved the Star Wars franchise, and although I did prefer the Episode 4, 5 & 6 more, I still loved Episodes 1, 2 & 3.

    Sorry! Didn't see the other thread about this. I did a quick scan, but nothing prolonged.

    Once it left Luca's hands, it could only get better. Bringing Abrams in will definitely push it in a positive direction.

    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hate, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    Other then the quality of a director's previous movies, I fail to understand how his previous work makes him the wrong person to direct a Star Wars movie. If anything considering the job he did at Star Trek you should be quite happy.
