Nice! I'm really trying to not to boil over in excitement of this, but I'm stoked that Andy Serkis is on board.

Ew. J.J. Abrams. I'm also concerned that the elder versions of the OG cast will influence my enjoyment of the originals.

That said...I'd be lying if I said I was less than hyped. >_>

I don't really known of recent J.J. Abram's movies that have disappointed me. What comes to mind is Star Trek and Super 8 knocking my socks off.


Literally. I was sitting in the theaters, and suddenly I was sockless. However, my pants remained intact, if soiled.

I'm betting he plays Obi-Wan's Jedi Apparition. (Since Sir Alec Guiness is dead.)
