JJ Abrams has made Star Trek cool. Lets hope he makes SW ultra cool!

True. My friend's son is 9, and he loves Star Wars, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, and superheroes. I suggested the new Star Trek movies to him and his mom on the phone one night, which I know he would absolutely love, and I got this skeptical, "Really? Star Trek is for nerds." from him.

I said, "Seriously? Dude, I've met you. You're one of us, whether you like it or not."

Lol though, I had a debate with an 8th grader on whether SW was cool or not.

Lol. At least Abrams' movies have attracted my friends, even though many think it's nerdy.

Yep, he'll probably line up too. 2 years is a long time to change a mind.

Yep, I'm not even going to deny that his Trek movies are infused with a ton of SW. Even Orci&Kurtzman said in order to adapt it to the big screen today they had to make it similar to Star Wars.

Jesus Christ, what happened to this thread? I go away for a couple of hours, come back, and it's all doom and gloom and "Disney is gonna ruin Star Wars!!" and "I was never excited about Episode VII anyway!! I swear!!"

Be patient.

Even though I was angry about today and think it was a massive mistake. I agree with you on this. As usual it escalates quickly to "Game over man game over".

You've both been here long enough to know that even the tiniest bump in the road means that the sky is falling. Best not to question it. Just lean back and ride it out. Let the kids get up in arms and work themselves into a nerd rage.

If the sky does fall tomorrow I'm totally blaming you.

I expect with each new thing that gets revealed there will be someone who will have a negative reaction to it. This is a passionate fan base and I expect there to be freak outs over a lot of things.

I got to be honest, summer 2015 still doesn't seem realistic to me. Especially since they had nothing this year.

Doesn't seem like Abrams is ready with the story to move forward with casting.

It will make 2015. Again Horn would have just said nothing about the date instead of re-iterate that point that it was summer 2015.

From a buisness standpoint not having any news is a complete disaster for disney.

It's almost a given that ford, hamill, and fisher will return.

All they would have needed would have been for J.J. to come out, say he wanted everyone to meet an old friend and have Ford walk out dressed as Han. The place would have went nuts. But instead nothing. It's just mind boggling.

People can say it's been a "disaster" all they want, and maybe it has been, but the second a trailer is released or even some stills or something like that no one is going to be thinking about how much of a "disaster" today was.
