Lucas ran out if ideas & fell out with most of the original cast members, what could & should have been an excellent prequel trilogy Lucas went all CGI & poor script.
JJ should make Star Wars rock again, done wonders with the Star Trek franchise.
Like most I can't wait for to see this movie.
Yea he completely abandoned everything that made the originals great with crappy CG instead of practical effects, zero humour, terrible acting, lame dialogue, boring characters. Episode 3 was ok only because he connected it to Episode 4 pretty well but overall the prequels were a monumental disappointment.
I'm not a Star Trek fan but enjoyed JJ's take on them for what they were. I think he'll do a much better job with Star Wars though.
