Wow! Not sure how to feel. Should be good.

RT @slashfilm Spielberg was a big component behind recommending JJ and having Kennedy push for him
if it turns to be true is AMAZING news, believe me. He have a great passion for star wars and is an amazing storyteller. Just hopes he doesn't mess with flare lens and time travel in the SW universe.
Wow, was not expecting that one... Interesting that Ben Affleck was also in the frame. Might we see him further on down the line?
Nice, wonder what changed his mind about directing it.
looking forward to seeing his take on Star Wars.
While he was not my first choice to direct Star Wars I don't plan on getting upset or cranky about any new developes because I have faith that KK and LFL know what they're doing more than I could ever hope to! I'm very happy that we finally know! Congrats to Abrams and I wish him good luck!
Hmm. I'll wait for the official announcement from Lucasfilm. Not great, but certainly very good. I liked his Star Trek, but I'm hoping he can gel his visual sensibilities with the rest of the saga.
After seeing Star Trek I thought JJ would be better suited for Star Wars instead.
What sucks is I have a feeling this news will just linger for the next few months without an official confirmation, much like the news about Kasdan's invovlement.
Please, no! I hope he can restrain himself!
WHAT!? Not sure how I feel!?!??!
Holy cow. Well guess this is a really good thing when we know he is a huge star wars fan.
I think this is great. Super 8 was cool
Not really sure how I feel about this. I guess I should go and watch his movies now. Still would have liked Brad Bird to direct it.
I was going to say...I just saw this cross my Facebook newsfeed and I was like "...what!?"
That said, I'm actually very optimistic about this news. I really enjoyed his Star Trek and Lost was outstanding. Hopefully he can bring good things to Star Wars.
Given there is no official confirmation on this I will take it with a pinch of salt.
Well, let's wait until it gets confirmed by LFL and/or Abram himself.
