The smoke has cleared and it looks like the new Star Wars movie slated for 2015 finally has a director – and it turns out that it’s going to be J.J. Abrams after all.
I know, I know – “bullshit,” you’re saying. “That was just a rumor and Abrams put it to bed back in November.” Well it’s true he said a few months ago that he wasn’t going to take the job, but something’s changed because now not one, not two, but three different outlets for entertainment news media are all over the story like stink on a tauntaun.
And besides, it’s got to be true. You read it on the internet didn’t you?
So let the fanwanking and/or backbiting commence, everyone! What do you think? Will Abrams “ruin” Star Wars the same way he did with the Star Trek reboot? Will there finally be a decisive victory in the internecine war between Trekkies and Star Wars fans? Will Bill Shatner and Carrie Fisher finally just get a room? I guess we’ll have to wait until 2015 to find out. See you Monday when the dust settles!
Let’s be honest, a J.J. Abrams Star Wars can’t be any worse than Phantom Menace, right?
