At the Produced by conference on the Fox lot, J.J. Abram said:“Most likely we are going to be moving to London at the end of the year for the Star Wars movie,” Abrams also said that overseas shoots “drives him crazy” but plans were already in play by Disney to shoot in the UK before he came on board. J.J. Abrams also gave his thoughts of the pressure of directing such a huge franchise of Star Wars, “I think that the thing is so big and so massive to so many people that the key to moving forward is honoring but not revering what went before,”
I don’t know about you Poppers but getting J.J. Abram to at least do one of the new line of Star Wars movies is one of the best moves Disney could of done. The mans track record speaks for itself but I think his love of the franchise will me he will treat the matter with respect. Abram has not be shy about saying that he loves the franchise. J.J. Abrams could be the person to bring back some of the creditability to the franchise. No disrespect to George Lucas but the last three efforts were not the greatest for us of the original three. Lets hope the man that help reboot the Star Trek universe can so the same for Star Wars.
Also does he look like Larry Fine with glass in the picture? Just saying.
