Until we get confirmation from Disney, this is strictly in the rumor category, despite what other movie news outlets would have you think. So don’t get your panties in a bunch if it turns out to be false. There’s my disclaimer, so on to the story . . .
The Wrap broke the news that J. J. Abrams will be directing the next Star Wars film I am not going any farther with this until there is a press release from Disney and Kathleen Kennedy. I have tried to avoid posting rumors and gossip and fanboy speculation regarding the next Star Wars film because it simply takes up too much time that I don’t have. It seems everyday there is new speculation from people who have no clue or inside information.
The only reason I am posting this is because I have a small feeling it might be true. If it turns out to be true, I will go into more detail and how I feel about it. Until that time, regard this as a rumor. You can click on over to The Wrap or any other movie news outlet to see what they have to say about it. I will post more when we have confirmation, which if this is true, will be soon I would expect.
