Film industry analysts are cautiously optimistic that the choice of J.J. Abrams (Lost, Mission Impossible III, Star Trek into Darkness) to direct the next Star Wars film is a solid pick which can breathe fresh life into the weathering franchise. Though the film is still over two years out, expect Disney (DIS) to slowly integrate the Star Wars brand into its other segments as it looks to start cashing in on what some call a massive merchandising and content opportunity.

    Jedi Spock! coming soon to a theater near you! Give Disney a few years, and I predict the Star Wars franchise will be even less recognizable than it is now after years of having George Lucas abuse it the name of marketing/toy sales and his increasing eccentricity.

    The last Star Trek film by JJ Abrams was real crap (how the heck a billion dollars production can't hire a scientist just to stop you just from the most stupid things; and a real fan to stop you from multiple assassinations to the tradition..... grrrrrr!&%%$$$%%##), so he is going to destroy Star Wars too... great... dam&%%$$££@@&&... :(
