JJ Abrams, who is known for films such as the Star Trek reboot and Super 8, as well as the hit television show Lost, is set to direct the newest Star Wars. Disney confirmed the news late Friday night, and George Lucas officially passed on the franchise saying, "I’ve consistently been impressed with J.J. as a filmmaker and storyteller. He’s an ideal choice to direct the new Star Wars film and the legacy couldn’t be in better hands."
Fans will be happy to hear that scribe Lawrence Kasdan, who penned Empire Strikes Back, is in talks to write Star Wars Episode VII.
What do you think? Is JJ Abrams a good choice?
