Someone posted on IGN that the J.J. in Abrams name may as well stand for Jar Jar if he screws this up.

Mixed feelings about this. I think Abrams gets good performances out of actors (something prequels sorely lacked), but all of his stuff looks too clean and fake. Star Wars should look gritty and lived in, that was its original charm and was something I hoped would return to the new films.

Also if there is shacky cam I won't be able to see the film as it makes me massively ill, it is just stupid.

This guy is the worst choice to direct the next Star Wars film....he made Star Trek the movie...wow dang Trek fans are everywhere nowadays. Star Wars must be directed by someone who respects the entire saga of Star Wars. And let that Abrams stick with Star Trek because he would destroy the new Star Wars movie given the chance. Trek directors like him needs to stay away from the WARS ( Any Star Wars Based Franchise )!!!

Opportunity of a life time.

I saw Conan awhile back, and if I'm not mistaken, could have sworn he was asked about directing one of these, and at the time, he wasn't interested. It doesn't get any bigger than this for a director. If successful, this will catapult this guy into the upper echelon of directors, a door in which he's already knocking on.

Love him or hate him, it is what it is, he will be directing the next Star Wars, lets hope he's successful.

I don't think he don't have to screw it up to get much hate. Star Wars fans tend to be horrible people, who hate just about everything.

Well people put too much weight on a director like he is the one that defines most of the film. In fact writers are far more important here. Writers basically define the storyline, scenes, characters and drama. While the director is crucial for the acting performances I think Star Wars was never really about great acting.

My guess is everyone who hated episodes 1-3 will also hate 7-9. And apparently it's mandatory to hate the prequels if you're a "true" fan... I'm glad I am not. I like all 6 movies.

What a ridiculous conclusion - The prequels were hated every bit as much by the mainstream audience as they were by the hardcore fans. The only difference being the mainstream flock such as yourself moved on...
... the search continues for an actual Star Wars MMO - your stories are weak old man... not to mention races, bugs, quests, features, pvp and on and on and on
