As fans are waiting to see who will helm the new Star Wars film, some filmmakers have decided to give their reaction to this subject. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, below we have reactions from directors such as J.J. Abrams (Star Trek), Jon Favreau (Iron Man), Shawn Levy (Real Steel), George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau), Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) and Kevin Smith (Dogma). More below. Jon Favreau: "The idea of another trilogy that further shrouds the Force in mystery as its secrets are lost to time – that’s extremely compelling. I want so bad for it to be good. Can you imagine?" George Nolfi: "Star Wars literally defined ‘the magic of movies’ to me as a child. No other film had more impact on my subconscious desire to become a filmmaker. I can’t imagine a larger event-film for our generation than a sequel to Return of the Jedi. »
