It always seemed to me that his "I was more of a Star Wars fan" was orchestrated as part of that distancing.
So the excercise of making the nuTrek movies was rather a vehicle to show off that Abrams would be an able director for the Star Wars sequels? What a thought!

The reality was that Trek was trying to reinvent itself to appeal to new audiences after years of mismanagement; I wouldn't be surprised if Abrams had been specifically asked to make his indifference to the old franchise and its fans a talking-point as a way of playing that up.
I concur, the marketing of ST'09 went out of it's way to distance itself from what came before, which had to have been a studio mandate as they believed that Star Trek had become too insular - it always seemed to me that his "I was more of a Star Wars fan" was orchestrated as part of that distancing.
He also has been quoted as saying "I was NEVER a Star Trek fan."

Re: I Like Abrams

Since this thread seems to have become solely about Abrams and his films, it is not suited for this forum.

For discussions about the Abrams Trek movies, please post in Star Trek Movies XI+.

For discussions about Abrams other SF films, please post in Science Fiction and Fantasy.
