Sorry if you don’t like J.J. Abrams. You must be having a rough time of it right now.
First things first, the rumor that he’s directing “Star Wars: Episode VII” is no longer a rumor: Disney has confirmed it.
In a press release sent out by the Mouse House, LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy sung her praises of Abrams, saying:
“It’s very exciting to have J.J. aboard leading the charge as we set off to make a new Star Wars movie. J.J. is the perfect director to helm this. Beyond having such great instincts as a filmmaker, he has an intuitive understanding of this franchise. He understands the essence of the Star Wars experience, and will bring that talent to create an unforgettable motion picture.”
