One concern regarding Williams (although the man hasn't seemed to slow down yet) - He is 81.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

I won't be shocked in the least if Lucas has the right connections within the industry to keep 20th Century Fox as the distributor of the third Trilogy. I know Disney now owns Lucasfilm and the Disney folks would carve their name and logos on Mount Rushmore if they had the legal leeway to do so, but as CC said the opening Fox fanfares of the first six Star Wars films are some of the most legendary and iconic opening sequences of any movies in the entire history of cinema. I don't see Lucas giving up on a Fox distribution deal without the biggest fight he and Kathleen Kennedy can muster.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Since the 20th logo is so iconic to the SW brand, something like this could work swapping the order of 20th and Disney (and dropping the Pixar)

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

That opening isn't iconic, it's just familiar.

Frankly, Star Wars did more to boost the status of the 20th logo than the logo does for Star Wars. A Disney logo there will do just as well.

Disney does a lot of variants, tailoring their logo to individual films.





I'd like to see their Star Wars variant.

I suspect it will be something like having an X-Wing squad fly through the fireworks akin to the added bit at the end of RotJ SE.

Everyone was in the running. But Abrams seems to have been selected even if no actual official announcement has been made. Hell, news on TV and radio is even running with this news. If this turns out to be a hoax, a lot of people are going to be embarassed.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Affleck's a talented director. He's not shown real interest in fantasy films, but I'd certainly not be alarmed if he were directing a Star Trek movie.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

And, here we go courtesy of the L.A. Times:

According to Paramount Vice Chairman Rob Moore, Abrams — who directed both 2009′s “Star Trek” and the upcoming sequel “Star Trek Into Darkness” — will still be involved in some capacity with a possible third “Trek” movie, at the minimum as a producer, if not also directing the film.

Moore also pointed out that Abrams will continue to play a role in another of the studio’s most valuable franchises, “Mission: Impossible.”

“J.J. will continue to develop projects for us including a new ‘Mission: Impossible,’ and he is committed to produce another ‘Star Trek,’” Moore said Friday afternoon.

With 2009′s big-screen reboot of the beloved television and movie series, Abrams won over a new generation of audiences with a broadly entertaining and accessible take on Gene Roddenberry’s venerable cast of characters — and satisfied hard-core fans by creating a place for Leonard Nimoy to appear as Spock alongside Zachary Quinto’s new take on the beloved Vulcan.

Anticipation for the May 17 sequel is astronomically high. Paramount wisely began stoking interest in “Star Trek Into Darkness” starting late last year, with the release of a plot synopsis, a poster, a teaser, a trailer and then rolling out nine minutes of footage before Imax 3-D showings of Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”
.
.
.
If Abrams does not direct, that could leave either Lindelof or Kurtzman and Orci in the director’s chair, or perhaps another Abrams associate such as filmmaker Matt Reeves, who helmed the Abrams-produced monster movie “Cloverfield”...

It seems for now Abrams’ relationship with Paramount remains strong — every film Abrams has directed or produced since 2006′s “Mission: Impossible III” has been for the studio, where Bad Robot enjoys a lucrative first-look deal.
So, for folks who thought maybe this was going to produce a change in the direction of the Star Trek films and franchise:

Tough shit.

Maybe JJ will spike the punch and things will get interesting.

I doubt anyone was expecting that. Cultural degeneration doesn't change overnight. Anyway JJ seems OK. The writers are probably the bulk of the problem. But thanks for caring.
