    There is but one all-important question.

    Who's doing the score? :)

    No, after he reboots The Facts of Life. His version of Tootie is going to revolutionize American cinema.

    Christensen was very good in Shattered Glass.

    He's doing Firefly back to back with Buffy.

    Warner Bros approached his agent about Babylon 5, but the poor guy injured himself laughing.

    Oh, he's better under other directors' tutelage and instructions. Life as a House was probably his best acting work in a film to date and Jumper was a serviceable performance. But under Lucas he was like a First Aid dummy with a lightsaber.

    Abrams running Star Trek and directing Star Wars?

    This could very well be the next "Golden Age" of sci-fi cinema a la the late 70s/early 80s.

    Love it!

    It's dead on target if you're a curmudgeonly Trek fan who laughably feels they've been betrayed since JJ Abrams took the helm of the franchise, and can't stand the thought of his continued success and remarkable rise to prominence.

    Being able to take on two of the most recognizable sci-fi franchises in history is quite an astounding and significant accomplishment, no matter how you cut it.

    I envy JJ Abrams. Creative control over Star Trek and Star Wars? He just won the nerd lottery.

    Congratulations to him.

    It's all for naught if he uses CG in his movies; only plastic models are pure.

    Skywalker Ranch won't do anymore. We must locate the Abrams residence.

    This board has taken a turn towards the ironic lately.

    It's a Gamorrean Guard reference. Probably the best use of animatronic masks in the Saga. I imagine if we get revisits of the classic OT species in the new Trilogy the makeup will be updated (they did so with the Gran and Rodians). It would be cool to see more Gamorreans and what 30 years of advances in makeup technology could do for the race.

    Yeah, I knew that.

    I'd advise you that Gamorrean is increasingly resistant to antibiotic treatment. Watch where you wave the old lightsaber, okay?

    It's Disney. They'll use Muppets. And part of Abrams' contract agreement to direct SW was also to reboot "Pigs in Space".
