Star Wars, Disney style.

Figured this needed a thread, now that a certain bit of information has come to light....

the whole idea that JJ Abrams is going to direct this makes me worried that this will just be a Lens Flared Explosion Fest that won't do justice to the story from the original trilogy

Id rather they give it to Michael Bay because at least that way we'll get a lot of hot chicks in the film along with the explosions and lens flares

Michael Bay can go fuck himself. JJ Abrams is the best choice for sci fi imo.

You have got to be kidding. Michael Bay is quite literally the WORST possible director they could have chosen. Well maybe he'd be better than Uwe Boll but that's about it.

Best choice of all IMO would be Joss Whedon

haven't watched that but I lost count of how many of his shows end up involving time travel and/or an alternate universe.

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.

Forgot about Whedon, he's pretty good too. Star Trek really sold me on JJ Abrams though. If they go with different directors for each movie they should try to lock in Whedon for one of them.

lol their styles are the same, lens flares, explosions, and weak stories; except you could say Bay has weaker stories + hotter chicks (im speaking of films he's directed btw)

although i quite liked Super 8, it was filled with lens flares and the story, while i enjoyed it, wasn't amazing/unique

you guys forget the director is only part of the movie.

there are the people that write the script too.

the cinematographer.

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.

seriously

If you dislike their work equally that is one thing. But to think that they are similar? What the fuck?!

Star Trek and Transformers were both reboots helmed by Bay and Abrams. Fans new and old loved Star Trek. Fans new and old were at best yeah-I-guess-it's-not-bad-ed with Transformers.

Bay uses the story for the sake of explosions. Abrams puts explosions in his story.

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.

it's official

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:

Quote:
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.'
Disney Officially Confirms J.J. Abrams for Star Wars: Episode VII

The screenwriter is fairly new too but little miss sunshine was good

old? eh disputable, n let's not forget all the lens flares

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.
