JJ Abrams of the current Star Trek movie franchise will direct the next Star Wars movie. I don't know what to make of it so I cant prejudge but I wonder what kind of styling will be involved in the camera angles and the designs of the ships or how the storyline will go since the Dearth Vader is dead and his ghost is now in the good side. Perhaps like Star Trek this episode of Star Wars will be in an "alternate reality."

In establishing the New Republic there are a lot of loose ends to tie up. There would still be many loyal Imperial troops (they were mostly clones, right?) and all sorts of internal backstabbing that can be used to spin a new story.

Many of the actors from the original trilogy are still available (albeit old), so there is certainly room for a "Star Wars: The Next Generation" with some continuity.

My ideas - The story picks up 20 years later.

Luke found a young potential Jedi, and some other Jedi in hiding and reestablished the Jedi to protect the New Republic.

His son is a young headstrong Jedi in training to one of Luke's earliest new Jedi.

Princess Leia was named to head the New Republic. The daughter of Leia and Hans is learning the political process, but find that there is a conspiracy sponsored by an unknown Sith Lord to return to the Empire.

The daughter is attracted to her first cousin, Luke's son - but as that is a forbidden love - she finds help from a handsome young starship owner/ pilot who operates on the slightly shady side of the law.

Star Wars VII - The new princess has to find help to rescue her cousin who has apparently been kidnapped by the Sith. Her mother, Leia, is killed as a Empire faction, takes control of the Senate leadership.

Star Wars VIII - Luke's son takes over the new Jedi Council, even though his father thinks he is not ready and puts down a Sith led rebellion. Leia's daughter returns to the Senate and ousts the Empire supporters.

Star Wars IX - Luke is killed by the Sith, who also kill several of the new Jedi Council. Luke's son and Leia's daughter fight the Sith to the death. Hopefully forever ridding the stars of their influence.

Not really anymore. The Kaminoans (Creators of the clones) attempted to create a new batch of clones only loyal to them (or along those lines) Vader found out, sent troops to steal the DNA the Kaminoans were using (Jango's), and destroyed it. Shortly after he realized there was a threat to have a clone-only army, so be brought humans into the fold.

There are dozens of books to go off of for ideas. There is no way there will be an alternate reality. They existed in Trek lore, but not Star Wars lore. 110% no to that one.

Hammel will be back as Grand Master of the Jedi. Either he will be in the early stages of developing the New Order, or it'll be established already.

All in all I cant wait!! Happy Abrams took the plunge, after denying it.



So we beat on against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

I don't know if I like the idea of Abrams directing this after he has done Star Trek. Star wars and Star Trek are two seperate franchises, that I am not sure I want to see painted together in any way. Oh well, I guess the dye is cast. We will have to see what comes of it. lotsa story lines in a Galaxy far far away.


Older than I just was ,and younger than I will soo be.

Publicly, Disney has said it will be a new story altogether. Now, there might be some borrowing from novels and whatnot, but I'm not sure they'll do a derivative of any set track of books or even borrow from many of them to mash them up. After the horrid prequels, it HAS to be a new story.

I was skeptical too, but the guy really did a good job of bringing in the essence of Star Trek and, most importantly, the characters. The challenge he'll have with Star Wars is that the primary characters are not going to be in it, as we know them now. Little to tie Episode VI to as a bridge which, for many SW fans, is good and bad.

I'm ambivalent.

But I am happy as hell Lucas won't be around for it.

So it'll be titled Star Wars VII: Attack of the Klingons

It will open with some kids filming the crash of the enterprise. Shot down by and imperial star cruiser. Khan will rise from the ashes and Luke Skywalker will cut him in half with his lightsaber.

The End

Seriously though. If it doesn't go into lens effect overload he's a good choice.

Not so fast. He will be around it as creative consultant, and I would wager will have a hand in it. Not only that, but he's already wrote the outline story for VII, VIII & IX.

Is this canon?
