J.J. Abrams named as STAR WARS Episode VII Director

Well this is sure to cause some controversy and spark some heated debates between fanboys everywhere, J.J. Abrams, the man responsible for the successful 2009 Star Trek reboot will helm the latest entry into the Star Wars universe!

Only a few months after saying that despite his love for Star Wars he wouldn’t direct the much anticipated Episode VII due to his allegiance to Star Trek he has done a bit of a U-turn and decided to rule epic sci-fi movie for years to come…. hey at least now when your girlfriend gets the two confused and says “whatever they’re the same thing anyway” she’s a little bit closer to the truth.

What do you guys think? Excited for Abrams take on the biggest sci-fi saga of all or worried he’s gonna ruin the lightsabers with too much lens flare?

I know one little guy who’s really excited…
