It is now known that Star Wars Episode VII, the first Star Wars film to be made since Disney purchased the rights to Star Wars from George Lucas, will involve time travel and an attempt to rewrite the earlier history depicted in the prequels.
Whether the time travelers will be seeking to prevent Anakin Skywalker from turning to the dark side, or just eliminate Jar Jar Binks, remains to be seen.
My guess is that Abrams will find it tedious to keep his two projects seperate, and so what will happen is that the descendants of the Skywalker family will travel to the distant future and a galaxy far, far away, to enlist the help of StarFleet.
At which point, the longstanding feud between fans of Star Wars and Star Trek will finally end, as both unite in dislike of this mash-up.
Are you excited or worried at the prospect of J. J. Abrams making the next Star Wars movie? And could you envisage a scenario that brought Star Trek and Star Wars together in a way that fans of both – or of either – would like?
