With J.J. Abrams recent casting of Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie, the accusations of his cast lacking diversity seem to be wearing thin. Though if you knew where to look in his previous career, you'd be able to see that it really wasn't going to ever be a big problem in the first place.

Star Wars: Episode VII Behind The Scenes Photo Features J.J. Abrams With R2-D2
Because R2-D2 and C-3PO are droids, they have longer lifespans than every living thing in the universe, and as a result have found their way into the saga from beginning to end. Being familiar with this fact, we have always had every reason to believe that both C-3PO and R2-D2 would be coming back for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII.

J.J. Abrams Explains Why He Wants Star Wars To Stay So Secretive
In 1977, audiences were blessed with an ignorance of the universe BECAUSE they hadn’t yet seen a single frame of footage. But audiences who will be turning up for Episode VII when it opens in 2015 (or, you know, whenever) will have obsessed over every minute of six Star Wars films, and Abrams better start figuring out how to cater to THAT crowd.

J.J. Abrams Apologizes For Constant Use Of Lens Flares
"I was showing my wife an early cut of Star Trek Into Darkness," he said, "and there was this one scene where she was literally like, ‘I just can’t see what’s going on. I don’t understand what that is.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I went too nuts on this.’”

Star Wars: Episode VII May Be Shot On IMAX Cameras
With the 3D trend visibly dying out, movie theaters and studios are looking for even more ways to get people to actually leave their houses to go to the movies, and thus far the hippest new thing is IMAX. The large format that used to be limited to planetariums has been used to dazzling effect in films like The Dark Knight Rises and the upcoming Gravity, and more and more filmmakers are adopting it to make their big-budget spectacles all the more spectacular. Will J.J. Abrams be the next to jump on board?

David Oyelowo of Lee Daniel’s The Butler and Michael B. Jordan of Fruitvale Station have taken meetings about the film. Of course a meeting is far from a guarantee in casting, but Jordan is said to have met personally with Abrams, which is a bit more promising.

J.J. Abrams Wants Star Wars: Episode VII To Feel 'Real'
He throws the word “real” around a lot. Which is fine. It backs up this sentiment that Abrams is going to counter the digital chilliness of Lucas’ prequel trilogy with the promise of practical effects.

The director of Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness is locked in and ready to start in January on Star Wars: Episode VII, and we've assumed since he first signed on that it meant he wouldn't be able to direct Star Trek 3

Abrams. This teaser trailer, which popped up today at Entertainment Weekly, is not for Episode VII… probably

When it was announced that J.J. Abrams was chosen to helm the next entry in the still sprawling Star Wars franchise, it was largely assumed he would be too busy to continue on with the Star Trek franchise he'd successfully rebooted. However, Star Trek into Darkness's Mr. Spock says we shouldn't count Abrams out just yet.

George Lucas Has Yet To Speak With J.J. Abrams About Star Wars
This begs the question, though: How much insight would you want Lucas to have at this stage? We’ve seen the prequels. Many did not like the prequels.

Star Trek Into Darkness: Will There Be A Sequel, And Who Should Make It?
Star Trek Into Darkness is a hit. Not a giant hit, and not the kind of thing that has studios calling all of their rivals and screaming "Suck it!" while guzzling champagne at 8 a.m. (at least , that's how we picture it), but a big enough hit all the same. Especially when you account for its huge improvement with global audiences, Star Trek Into Darkness has done well enough to keep the franchise alive… which means, inevitably, it's time to start talking about sequels
