Quote from: Rico on January 24, 2013, 03:15:27 PMWell, that's an interesting turn of events. I'm actually pretty ok with it. JJ loves "Star Wars" and he knows the universe.
Quote from: Chris-El on January 24, 2013, 03:38:01 PMHis style is so different from what we have seen in all previous SW films. Personally, I would have liked to see Speilberg take a crack at it, but I guess they want to go "young and hot". I hope the story is there.

Well that's just it, I want STAR WARS, not STAR WARS as done by JJ. Spielberg would have been great but I think Joe Johnson would have been even better, as he respects the source maerial, was there during the filming of the OT, and doesn't have a "style" that will be all over the film. GL wasn't a great director, but he understood kinetic storytelling and editing.
Quote from: Bryancd on January 24, 2013, 03:45:46 PMKind of funny reading this now:"Speaking to Empire magazine, Abrams said he will be sticking to the "Star Trek" franchise. "I guess the franchises could go up against each other, but I'm not thinking that far ahead! I'm a huge fan of Star Wars, Empire and Jedi, and the idea of the world continuing is exciting and will be amazing. Kathy Kennedy is a friend and there are no smarter producers. It's in great hands."He added that "there were the very early conversations and I quickly said that because of my loyalty to Star Trek, and also just being a fan, I wouldn't even want to be involved in the next version of those things. I declined any involvement very early on. I'd rather be in the audience not knowing what was coming, rather than being involved in the minutiae of making them."
Quote from: Rico on January 24, 2013, 03:50:48 PMI think you guys are being a bit premature. JJ Abrams has done a lot of great stuff over the years and I find it quite different and exciting to watch most of the time. He is not developing "Star Wars" from the ground up like he did with many of his TV series and several film projects where his "style" was very evident. Most importantly, JJ knows how to direct actors. I'll debate anyone on this point. And that's what "Star Wars" will need - in my view.
