I don't know for sure if it is going to be that great but JJ can make a good action movie. However the science in his movies so far hasn't been great. Look at the new Star Trek great action scenes and setups but the science in that movie was god awful. I mean everyone knows you can watch a planet get sucked into a black hole from another planet not even in the same solar system.

Oh no...

It wasn't just the science in the Star Trek film that was terrible. The plot itself was also awful, and half the time seemed there to contrive weak excuses to have action scenes.

You need to be a director first and a fan second when it comes to making a movie from a huge franchise. I just hope Abrams fan side, won't overshadow his director side.

Yeah, like how you can't actually see lasers in flight or dodge them, and hear anything in space. Or how crowded asteroid fields are, or how a beam of light has a set amount and is able to cut anything.... Great science. If you want science stay AWAY from Star Wars.

1. Abrams won't be writing this film only directing it.
2. he is really good at directing action so thats a plus
3. For Star Trek he refused to use CGI sets he would only use real world sets. Lets hope he does this as well.

Did someone put something in your oatmeal this morning? At any rate in something like Star Wars there are scifi elements that have to be made up you know like lightsabers and lazer blasters. Then there are science elements like no oxygen in space or planets in other solar systems can't be seen with the naked eye like they are as close as the moon.

Until Abrams or a spokesperson for Abrams actually confirms this, all you have is a (usually reliable, admittedly) third party website, quoting an unnamed source. AND he's already denied it once before.

It could still be true, but remember it's not official yet, it could be another Zack Snyder moment.
