J.J. Abrams is set to direct the upcoming Star Wars film, which is quite astonishing since Abrams already directs the critically-acclaimed Star Trek series.  Abrams also produced ABC series Lost and 2011 blockbuster Super 8. Reps for Disney haven’t confirmed the report but it is rumored to be coming soon. Star Wars Episode VII will be the first movie in the series that will be produced by Disney as it bought LucasFilm last year. Episode VII will premiere in 2015 with Disney planning to release two more films in the series afterwards.
