J.J. Abrams Is Jumping Starships

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Star Trek director J.J. Abrams is in final negotiations to helm Star Wars: Episode VII. Though neither Abrams nor Disney have confirmed the news, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that J.J. gets the job. After all, if he can do for Wars, what he did for Trek, we may have less of a disturbance and more of a celebration in the Force. Is it too early to hope for at least one LGBT jedi?

UPDATE: Looks like it’s official. J.J. will be directing Star Wars Ep. 7.
