As to J.J. Abrams being high on himself ... Welcome to Hollywood! I hope the next movie is as fresh and different to the past two as EMPIRE was to STAR WARS. Another director, other than J.J. might just accomplish that. I loved that J.J. brought a "no rules" aspect to the reboot and though I would like this, very much, to continue ... it would be great to see the series take a surprise turn! It's nice to add to the pot, you know?
