I didn't mean they'd know the name of the battle specifically. That's not important. But you mention the battle at the end of ROTJ, the one with the fuzzy teddy bears, and I guarantee you most people would instantly know what you're talking about.

Re: Impact on Star Trek as Disney reboot Star Wars.

If they don't know this something is wrong with their education.

And yeah, general public type people (lol) don't know the word "Endor" or Tatooine for that matter. But they remember broad story elements and names of characters.

Re: Impact on Star Trek as Disney reboot Star Wars.

I was thinking, with JJ's lack of interest in committing to do a minimum of 3 Star Trek films. This based on his reluctance to say he would direct what is now title Into Darkness until the last minute last year. Who thinks JJ might jump ship and try to direct one of the Star Wars sequels? It is a dream for the man and all. Now he has the opportunity to do it.

But who actually wants to see a lens flare eclipse a Star Destroyer? Or for that matter, C-3PO generating a lens flare everytime he moves?

I see what you did there, I just don't see why. The Clone Wars is at least as bad as Phantom Menace.

That's TREASON.

Or at least, very depressing.

Re: Impact on Star Trek as Disney reboot Star Wars.

I knew it....I saw this comming from a mile.Many people thought that I was been hateful and foolish.

I knew there will be some sort of impact....if JJ directs Star Wars then that means he wont direct Star Trek 3...or Star Trek 13

Re: Impact on Star Trek as Disney reboot Star Wars.

WHAT.

GODDAMNIT.

This is complete crap! He's going to OF COURSE direct his beloved SW and Trek will either be on the back burner, endlessly put off or delayed or at the very best passed on to someone else who makes a hatchet job of it or recasts the whole lot or reboots it again or..

I feel like this is war.

Eh...There's no reason JJ can't pass it off to one of his boys, and serve as Executive Producer for the 3rd film.

Re: Impact on Star Trek as Disney reboot Star Wars.

I never expected Abrams to direct a third Trek film and I'm surprised he's even directing Into Darkness. He has a long history of setting things up and then moving on so that others can take over.

Personally I don't think it's a big deal and in his shoes, I'd probably do the same thing. Who in their right mind would pass up the opportunity to direct films in two of the biggest sci-fi franchises to have ever existed. Unless he has some sort of burning desire to direct a third Trek Film, I say if they make the offer than he should most certainly take it.

Personally, I think that's going to happen anyway. Star Wars or no Star Wars.
