[Movies] J.J. Abrams Officially Announced as Star Wars: Episode VII Director
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.26.2013



Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Pictures have officially announced that J.J. Abrams (Lost, Star Trek, Fringe) will direct Star Wars: Episode VII. Abrams will be directing the first of the new series of Star Wars films from a script by Michael Arndt; Abrams will also produce the film alongside Bryan Burk via Bad Robot under the Disney/Lucasfilm banner

George Lucas commented on the selection, saying, "I've consistently been impressed with J.J. as a filmmaker and storyteller. He's an ideal choice to direct the new Star Wars film and the legacy couldn't be in better hands."

Abrams also commented, saying, "To be a part of the next chapter of the Star Wars saga, to collaborate with Kathy Kennedy and this remarkable group of people, is an absolute honor. I may be even more grateful to George Lucas now than I was as a kid."
