JJ Abrams on why he wont direct another Star Wars Movie

JJ restarted 2 franchises, one of them completely, deserves a break

JJ Abrams too an incredibly hot offer and extremely dangerous job by agreeing to direct and produce Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. He did a great job with Star Trek a few years ago, now he proved to be both a great director and a serious Star Wars fan. While Episode VII received some small negative feedback because of the plot being too similar to “A New Hope”, I believe we can all agree that this movie almost completely fixed the things that some of us believed to be wrong with the sequels (the new trilogy).

Without too much editorial stuff as this is supposed to be a news segment, here’s the quote from JJ you came to read:

It was a wonderful way to visit a place that meant so much to me and obviously so many,” Abrams said. “I knew that if it worked, it was the perfect time to step down – and if it didn’t, no one would want me to do it anyway.

He’s not taking a complete break from movies, not at all. Just the burden of working on Star Wars, simply because of the weight of this title, is too much and nobody can take it. He’s to stay as executive producer of Episode VII and IX.

I’m very happy to be where I am,” he says. “Rian Johnson [who is currently directing Episode Eight] is brilliant and needs no help from me. As executive producer, I’ve been collaborating with them, but they are obviously doing all of the heavy lifting and it’s very exciting to see what’s going on.

There’s an upcoming full documentary about “The Force Awakens”. Don’t miss it. A lot more secrets and interesting facts are hidden in it.
