J.J. Abrams To Direct ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

At long last, Disney’s “Star Wars” sequel has found its director — and it’s a bold choice, to say the least.  “Star Trek” filmmaker J.J. Abrams is Disney’s choice to helm “Star Wars: Episode VII,” according to reports published by TheWrap.com and Deadline.com. MTV News has reached out to Disney and Bad Robot representatives for confirmation; inquiries were not immediately returned.

Abrams was frequently cited as a fan-favorite pick for the “Star Wars” job, but his connection to the “Star Trek” series seemingly took him out of the running. Abrams even clarified in a December interview that he was approached by Lucasfilm to direct the new “Star Wars” movie, but he passed out of loyalty to “Trek.”

I don’t know about you guys but I dug Star Trek and I’m sure the follow up will be awesome.  Still though, there’s one thing that I find really really weird about this whole thing.  The line “Disney’s Star Wars.”  How crazy does that sound?  Honestly there’s just no way I ever get used to that.

Anywho.  Good luck J.J.  I’m sure you’ll kill it.
