When news broke that J.J. Abrams will reportedly be helming the Star Wars sequel, fans of the franchise — and the Internet — responded chaotically, naturally. Would Abrams’ voice help or harm the film already being held to extremely high standards? Though it won’t be released until 2015, speculation of a Star Wars flick directed by the man behind such cult classics as Star Trek, Alias, and Super 8 Lost, is already running rampant.
But one thing is for certain: Felicity will be a driving force. The opening crawl will probably start with: “Here’s the thing…”. There will likely be an ominous box left unopened. Of course, there will be leather. Suspect hair choices? Check. And angst. (There’s always angst.) J.J. Abrams ALSO has the opportunity to lure new fans to the franchise. Like fans of the WB. And rom-dramedies. Anyway, there’s no way he won’t be double-dipping in the Star Wars sequel, right? Right. So, let’s just go ahead and start calling our dear Princess Leilicity from now on. Slips right off the tongue, doesn’t it?
