Who is your favorite character in starwars?
I think that across all six movies I’d have to say Obi-Wan. He’s definitely the best part of the prequels and is essential to the original trilogy. The right blend of a great cinematic role and a crucial part of the Star Wars universe as a whole.
May the 4th be with you all!
J.J. Abrams Set to Direct Next 'Star Wars' Film | The Wrap
J.J. Abrams will direct the next “Star Wars” film for Disney, taking stewardship of one of Hollywood’s most iconic and lucrative film franchises, an individual with knowledge of the production told TheWrap.
“Argo” director Ben Affleck was also in contention, another individual with knowledge of the talks told TheWrap.
Take this with a grain of salt for now.
Nikki Finke has corroborated The Wrap’s report with a source of her own.
More details per /Film, some of which back up the female-lead notion.
Our sources have been telling us for a while now that Steven Spielberg was really pushing Kennedy to hire Abrams. The story goes that Abrams was the first filmmaker approached after Spielberg, but was very hesitant. Kennedy talked to other directors including Ben Affleck and also Matthew Vaughn who may have pitched to have Chloë Grace Moretz in the lead role. Our sources say that Spielberg was instrumental in convincing Abrams and Kennedy to make it happen.
EW has confirmed the news.
I don’t usually reblog anything, but as Star Wars fans you may want to know.
