POLL: What Do You Think Of Our New STAR WARS Director?
Yesterday the news finally hit: Star Trek director J.J. Abrams will be turning his hand to another massive sci-fi franchise when he steps in to helm Star Wars Episode VII for Disney. How do you feel about this? Click on to have your say..
The news (though not actually confirmed by Disney or Abrams yet we should point out) seems to have gone down well enough with fans, but there are those that think it's a bad idea to have one man in charge of both Trek AND Wars. Despite both being huge sci-fi franchises and having "Star" in their titles, Star Trek and Star Wars have actually always been quite different. Trek was much more serious and grounded, and dealt with some weighty issues, while Wars always had a more fun, Sunday matinee adventure feel to it. The thing is when Abrams rebooted Star Trek a few years back, you could say he brought more of a Star Wars tone to his take on the exploits of the US Enterprise and her crew - so what can we expect when he steps into a galaxy far far away? A more serious Star Wars? I loved his Star Trek myself, and am looking forward to the sequel, but I admit to being a bit apprehensive that Trek and Wars might become a bit too close tonally now that one man is overseeing both. Anyway, that's just my take, what's yours?
