Of course I am so geeked up to see Star Wars Episode VII. First finding out that it will be directed bys none other than JJ Abrams. Abrams has quite the resume and will hopefully be the person to get the Star Wars franchise back on track, with a bit of a lack luster set of prequel movies the Star Wars franchise took a bit of a tumble and lost a bit of its luster with that said Abrams has a big job ahead of him.Abrams is quite familiar with the Sci-Fi/Action genre having produced the 2009 Star Trek movie and the upcoming 2013 Star Trek Into Darkness. I realize Star Wars and Star Trek are different, they are still somewhat the same being in the Sci-Fi field and having a base to work with is better than someone coming in without any kind of background in the genre. I for one am excited about this news and am looking forward to 2015 and seeing if JJ Abrams can restore the luster to a great movie franchise.
Now we have a release date!!! Star Wars: Episode VII to Open December 18, 2015!!!
