It looks like Star Trek reboot director J.J. Abrams will direct Star Wars: Episode VII for Disney. It had been rumored for a while that Kathleen Kennedy was interested in Abrams, who is not only one of the most financially successful producer and directors today, but he’ll bring a lot of fanboy loyalty as well. His Bad Robot production company produced some the most popular TV shows -Lost, Fringe and Alias- along with helming the hugely successful films Mission: Impossible III and Super 8, along with the first two films in the Star Trek franchise reboot.

It has been noted that while as a producer, his plate is full, beyond finishing Star Trek Into Darkness, Abrams had not lined up another film to direct.

The next trilogy is due in May 2015, with a script by Michael Arndy (Toy Story 3, Little Miss Sunshine, Brave).
