it's hard to say who would be the best choice is, but Joss Whedon would definitely be up there. I think JJ Abrams is an excellent choice. he always finds ways to put intricate story pieces together and make existing ideas/stories feel fresh.
you guys forget the director is only part of the movie.
there are the people that write the script too.
and a shit load of other things.
right now it's just like captain america transferring from the avengers over to the Xmen.... or whatever.
he's just a part of a whole.
and i can assure you, disney will make sure he keeps in line. they wont risk the entire franchise on one man's ego, if he so chooses to spin things his way. especially the biggest movie franchise ever.
lots of money on the line man. talking multi billions.

Bay would have been a terrible choice. Disney would have been idiots to consider him. Bay makes popcorn movies meant for 14 year old boys. I mean, he's got his niche, and good for him for doing it well, but it definitely would have been a poor choice for SW, because Star Wars is a cultural phenomenon.
I'll believe it when an official announcement is made. Right now its all speculation. Disney is keeping a tight lid on everything.
Disney has issued an official press release confirming filmmaker J.J. Abrams (Star Trek Into Darkness, Super 8) will direct the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII, from a script written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story 3).
The press release reads as follows:
J.J. Abrams will direct 'Star Wars: Episode VII,' the first of a new series of Star Wars films to come from Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy. Abrams will be directing and Academy Award-winning writer Michael Arndt will write the screenplay.
"It's very exciting to have J.J. aboard leading the charge as we set off to make a new Star Wars movie," said Kennedy. "J.J. is the perfect director to helm this. Beyond having such great instincts as a filmmaker, he has an intuitive understanding of this franchise. He understands the essence of the Star Wars experience, and will bring that talent to create an unforgettable motion picture."
George Lucas went on to say "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."
"To be a part of the next chapter of the Star Wars saga, to collaborate with Kathy Kennedy and this remarkable group of people, is an absolute honor," J.J. Abrams said. "I may be even more grateful to George Lucas now than I was as a kid."
J.J., his longtime producing partner Bryan Burk, and Bad Robot are on board to produce along with Kathleen Kennedy under the Disney | Lucasfilm banner.
Also consulting on the project are Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg. Kasdan has a long history with Lucasfilm, as screenwriter on 'The Empire Strikes Back,' 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' and 'Return of the Jedi.' Kinberg was writer on 'Sherlock Holmes' and 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith.'
Abrams and his production company Bad Robot have a proven track record of blockbuster movies that feature complex action, heartfelt drama, iconic heroes and fantastic production values with such credits as 'Star Trek,' 'Super 8,' 'Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol,' and this year's 'Star Trek Into Darkness.' Abrams has worked with Lucasfilm's preeminent postproduction facilities, Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound, on all of the feature films he has directed, beginning with 'Mission: Impossible III.' He also created or co-created such acclaimed television series as 'Felicity,' 'Alias,' 'Lost' and 'Fringe.'
ill admit between the 2 Abrams has a much better chance of churning out a good movie compared with Bay but still wish someone else got it :/
any ideas on who else could have taken on the role? I think for the new Star Wars sequels to become successful, you need someone "geeky" to know the Star Wars lore to not screw up the world that George Lucas created. a director that won't get geeky would probably do things in his own way and screw things up.
good example is Michael Bay and Transformers. he tried to geek out and learn about Transformers, but ultimately he still did his own thing and just sprinkled some old school G1 references into the movies.
