|This guy will probably get punched in Star Trek. Not by Chewie though. That would be stupid.|
Want proof that JJ Abrams loves Star Wars? Check out the new Star Trek trailer where Captain Kirk orders "punch it" to get the Enterprise out of whatever jeopardy she's found herself in:
Star Wars fans will of course recognise "Punch it, Chewie" as a line from the original Star Wars movie.
Given JJ put that in the movie, clearly as a nod to fandom everywhere, I'm taking it as a sign JJ is a suitable pair of hands to direct the new Star Wars movie.
