“The next installment, which Abrams would direct, is targeting a 2015 release, with Disney seeing it as a launching point for a new trilogy.”[THR]

Heard the big news? J.J. Abrams has landed the biggest directing gig since The Ten Commandments – the nezt Star Wars. Is this a good idea? A bad idea? The greatest idea ever idea-ed?

Here’s what some prominent tweeters thought, some of which is surprising and all of which is hilarious:

Darth Vader @DepressedDarth – “JJ Abrams will direct the new Star Wars movie. If he doesn’t want to be force choked, he better not screw it up.”

BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS ✔ @BRIANMBENDIS – “I’m a huge JJ Abrams fan. I’m bummed out we’re not going to get any more Star Trek movies from him. the new one must be amazing”

Young Il Kim @theyoungilkim – “Comic-Con announced today it will be moving from San Diego to JJ Abrams’s backyard.”

Paul Scheer ✔ @paulscheer – “As long as JJ Abrams avoids Severe Blunt Force Trauma to the Head, these new Star Wars Films will be WAY better than the last ones.”

Elijah Wood ✔ @woodelijah – “The Flare is strong with this one.” (Is this a dig? Or a voice of support? I couldn’t tell).
