Heard about this recently. I love Star Wars and JJ Abrams. I don’t know what he has in mind yet, but I’d like to see him take on the New Jedi Order series, which is set about 20 years after Return of the Jedi. The galaxy is invaded by warrior aliens from another galaxy who are totally immune to “Jedi mind tricks”. They’re like Attila the Hun and his armies invading Europe, and make you long for the good old days when the Empire was in power. The books in the series are too ponderous—and there are like 20 of them—written more for super duper geeks who are spellbound by all the technical jargon (the same kind of people who learn how to speak Vulcan). I could only stand reading a few of them. But the storyline would great for a film series if they could shorten it, though a TV series would probably be a better format.
