Nerd explosion! Only in space, so technically silent…
The upcoming Star Wars sequel has finally found a director- Star Trek's!
J.J. Abrams, who previously said he was too excited to watch a new Star Wars film to actually get involved, was using a Jedi mind trick on us the whole time!
The director will be jumping ship from the Star Trek franchise into the much larger world! All he needed was a little force push from Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy!
Speaking of "push", J.J. will go straight from the helm of Star Trek: Into Darkness into pre-production on the as-yet-untitled Star Wars 7 as Disney wants to get it out in 2015!
Activate warp drive! Wait, we mean make the jump to hyperspace!
