So, I am beginning to feel like a kid again with the news of J.J. Abrams joining the Star Wars franchise. It appears he will be directing Star Wars VII. To be honest, if anyone could make us like Star Wars like we did with the original series, I do believe it is J.J. Abrams.
This is the man who brought us Alias, Lost, and Fringe to our tv screens and Cloverfield, Star Trek, and Super 8 to the big screen. One of my favorite films of 2011 was Super 8. It was a shot in such a way that made you think back to all those classic adventure films such as the Goonies, E.T., or Jaws. It had enough suspense, comedy, and action. I remember laughing at all the one-liners and walking out knowing I would be watching it again.
He brought Star Trek to a new generation of kids and kept Mission Impossible alive. So, yeah, if anyone has a chance at doing a great job with Star Wars, I do believe it is J.J. Abrams. I look forward to what he brings to the table.
