With the most massive nerd and geek announcement of this decade, all that’s needed is the facts. JJ Abrams is directing Star Wars Episode VII. Now I know I’m not alone in having his mind blown the eff out at this epic news. Its like a Nerd Four Loko tallboy of excitement, confusion, and a slight taste of Ho Lee Shit and a finish of skepticism. First, I believe that Disney must have promised JJ his own theme park or his own country, because he recently said that he wanted no parts of this project. Not because he wasn’t a fan of the Force, he was such a fanboy that he didn’t want to screw it up. That excuse now appears to be thrown out of the window. Secondly, its so strange that he would land the job, right after he just did Star Trek, which kinda felt like a Star Wars movie. Is this shit even legal? Apparently it is. I’m sure the nerd public opinion will be very polarized on this, so let the frenzy begin.
