The galaxy has spoken, J.J. Abrams to direct ‘Star Wars’

Posted: January 24, 2013 in Movies

After months of speculation and rumor, it looks like two mega-science fiction franchises will not be too large for J.J. Abrams.   While Disney has not made an official announcement yet, several publications have cited more than one source that the Abrams is the man.

No other details were made clear, but Abrams has long been the front runner for the Star Wars gig even though he recently turned down interest, saying he was “flattered” but was focused on his upcoming Star Trek films.

Abrams makes the most sense for the new Star Wars films.  He’s a sci-fi director through and through and his experience handling sacred material – such as Star Trek – is second to none.

It will be interesting to find out if he’s the director for the long haul or just for Star Wars Episode VII.  I’ll attempt to keep you guys updated.
