movie-going audience much in the intervening three decades, whatever way you want to slice it. I think Abrams was smart to jump ship.
Is he really jumping ship (has it been stated he won't direct?) though if it's his company that is making the third installment and he's a producer?
If he left to direct some no-name film, I'd agree that he may think the franchise doesn't have room for much growth. But he's leaving to direct something that he loves.
