Says the guy who wasn't a fan until he got a hold of the franchise and only did it because "space movies are cool" http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/12/...rs-episode-vii

Wasn't sure if this would go here or the Star Trek XI+ topic. Move if necessary.
I can relate to the guy. He's a fan of Wars, so he doesn't want to spoil it by making it.

But that's the season mystery, no? That's nothing more than Bad Wolf or Torchwood. You don't need to watch last season, even, in order to understand it.
I suppose so, though traditionally Christmas specials have been left out of the season arcs, with minor exceptions like a Torchwood reference in The Christmas Invasion and a mention of Mr Saxon in The Runaway Bride.
Traditionally, the Christmas story wasn't in the middle of the season, though. The season started with Asylum of the Daleks, which is where Clara's mystery started.

It's now being reported that Abrams may be directing Episode VII after all.

The hell? Need more details!

Likely means he's done with Trek.

He's finished ruining Star Trek so he can now move on to Star Wars and make the prequels look like masterpieces.

Please, if you think that any of Abrams films have reached the bullshit level that the prequels established, I think you need to watch more movies. This movie will be AT WORST far better then the prequels.

So, the Jedi will now wield Lensflaresabers? I'm guessing that's any Star Trek 3 buggered

Well see, still not compeletly convinced it's true.

“Look, Star Wars is one of my favorite movies of all time,” J.J. gushed. He added, “I frankly feel that – I almost feel that, in a weird way, the opportunity for whomever it is to direct that movie, it comes with the burden of being that kind of iconic movie and series. I was never a big Star Trek fan growing up, so for me, working on Star Trek didn’t have any of that, you know, almost fatal sacrilege, and so, I am looking forward more then anyone to the next iterations of Star Wars, but I believe I will be going as a paying moviegoer!”

He couldn't drag Trek lower than The Final Frontier and Insurrection, both nearly killing the franchise.

I hope it's true. It would be nice to have some fun, dynamic characters in a SW movie again.

Hell, Abram's movie was arguably better than Generations, Nemesis, TMP, and The Search For Spock as well, not to mention much of Voyager and Enterprise.

He did a good job with Mission: Impossible, too, so I bet he could make a fun STAR WARS movie, assuming this isn't just another crazy internet rumor.

(Yeah, I know. So much for "backing away.")

(Sigh. So much for backing away.)
