• J.J. Abrams Says He Has No Idea What He's Doing With 'Star Wars'

      With three new "Star Wars" in the works, we've heard plenty of casting rumors from Carrie Fisher's jokes to the return of Harrison Ford, but we haven't heard nearly as much about the plot of the film.


      That's probably because director J.J. Abrams isn't sure what direction the new trilogy is taking just yet.

      In an interview with Empire magazine, Abrams admitted he's not sure how he's approaching the film, comparing his work on the next "Star Wars" to his "Star Trek" series.

        I thought the story ideas were already in existence from the original story that Lucas wrote.

        I think Lucas just said that to get Disney to buy it, now he's like "Suckers!"

        Seriously, though, it's a long, long, long, long way from a loose outline of a story to a finished movie, so I can see how it might be difficult for Abrams to be able to actually wrap his head around a project of this magnitude. Especially since he's really just interpreting someone else's ideas.

        People thankfully gave up within a day or two after he was announced, so try again.

        You say that as if I made a lens flare joke. But, no, I made a lens flare joke joke, as in a joke about lens flare jokes.

        I see your point, and I understood it when I made my comment, and my comment still stands, so try again again.

        You need to post that is a spoiler alert.

        If there are going to be lens flares some people want to be surprised!

        I hope there is a lens flare during the opening crawl.

      I'm not sure if it occurred to me before, but last night I realized how similar the the phrase is to Brennan's "I don't know what that means."

      Just as the credits were to go, I wondered if there'd be a voice-over that said "Oh, THAT'S what that means!"

      Well, I've pointed at the screen while guy says, "What's that mean?" for the last time.

      So his name isn't really Han Solo...

      I can see the tagline now... twice the smuggler, twice the scoundrel, twice the pilot... meet... Han Duo!

      His name is Hans Olo. They spelled it wrong on his driver's license and he didn't think it was worth fussing over.

      Maybe he's related to Boba Fett! I'm sure someone would think that was neat..

      He's an Organa, so his name should be Han Organa Solo Organa; and he's Leia's step-brother husband. It's meant to explain Kylo's messed-up attitude?

      I didn't see a thread for the new Han Solo movie, and I couldn't find a post about this.
