In spite of everyone’s spastic reactions to the news that J.J. Abrams might be directing the next Star Wars film, the world continued to turn this morning. Frankly, I’m a little surprised by the news though. I don’t want to get into a Star Trek versus Star Wars argument because they aren’t remotely similar to one another so why can’t you just like both? (Many people do.) With that said, I’m a little surprised that they would go with him only because I don’t remember much time travel in the Star Wars movies. I haven’t read any of the books, though, so I can’t confirm that the whole franchise is free of it. Time travel is really J.J.’s thing. He’s done it well in Fringe, and I guess the latest Star Trek movie isn’t the worst thing that could have happened to that franchise. So, let’s try to be positive about this.
