J.J. Abrams Set to Direct Star Wars Episode VII: Twitter Reacts

Sci-fi mastermind J.J. Abrams is adding one more geek badge to his already robust directing career. The man behind Star Trek and Lost is reportedly set to spearhead the next film in the Star Wars saga for Disney and Lucasfilm. After announcing the acquisition of the studio George Lucas built in late October 2012, Disney then noted Star Wars: Episode VII is slated for 2015.

The director has produced, directed, and wrote for countless films and TV shows (seriously, when does he rest?!) over the course of his 20-something year career — including Armageddon, Cloverfield, Alias, and Fringe. It looks like J.J. is well qualified to take on the Star Wars universe: but what do you think? We've rounded up some Twitter reactions from across the web to find out what fans think of Episode VII's new director.
