And STAR WARS EPISODE VII will be directed by... J.J. Abrams!

Get ready for it peeps...

My head hurts just thinking about what a lightsaber battle is going to look like after Abrams gets finished with all his lens flare plug-ins.

The biggest news of this hour is that J.J. Abrams will be directing Star Wars Episode VII. This will be his next project after the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness.

Hmmmm... Star Wars and Star Trek together at last. Sorta like those old commercials for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, when you think about it...

Seriously though, this is abundawonderfully great news!! Star Wars is in very, very good hands :-)

I think we can all breathe a bit more easily now. Any chance we can get a prequel reboot? :)

A *LOT* of people have been suggesting... nay DEMANDING... ever since the Disney deal was announced that the Mouse House should kick the prequel trilogy to the curb and start all over with Episode I.

I'm still in the camp that believes the prequels have significant problems but in terms of story and metaphor, they are just fine. In some ways better (yeah I said it) than the original trilogy was.

That said, I very much have faith that with Abrams at the helm, what is now a six film series is going to overcome its existing flaws... and become something that could not be denied is truly a timeless, classic epic.
