Hyperchannel 38: To Be Takei

Star Wars VIII director Rian Johnson reviews J.J. Abrams Star Trek

While J.J. Abrams is behind the camera of Star Wars Episode VII, he will not be directing the eighth installment of the franchise. That honor goes to Rian Johnson, who will also be calling the shots on Episode IX. So it's looking like the new Star Wars trilogy might be more of a "Johnson Joint" than an Abrams one. Back in May 2009, Johnson guested on the /Filmcast to review J.J.'s first Star Trek outing. Slashfilm has brought the episode back to the surface now that the two directors will share a franchise, and it's an interesting look back at when Star Trek was first rebooted.
