Cool Videos: J.J. Abrams says he has hit a wall writing Star Wars and asks for fan help

May. 16, 2013by: Alex Maidy

Much like Harrison Ford a few weeks ago, J.J. Abrams appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to plug his latest movie, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, only to be asked about the status of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Unlike Ford, Abrams shared the fact that he and screenwriter Michael Arndt have come down with a case of writer's block to which Kimmel suggested taking some ideas from the audience.

What followed included suggestions from some costumed fans as well as Lando himself, Billy Dee Williams. Hell, even William Shatner had some ideas! Check out the video below.

Yeah, it is all a joke, but I like that Harrison Ford and Abrams are able to play along with this stage in the process. It makes the wait a little more tolerable for us fans.

Billy Dee looks like he just worked his way through a case of Colt 45.

Shatner was the best part.

"But I agree with those weird people that Leia and Chewie should do it. They should do it, J. J.! I made some sketches here..."

Jimmy Kimmel has some great bits, the Harrison Ford vs Chewie thing in the same vein was really funny too.

It's a REBOOT!

Yes, JJ Abrams is like a reboot of Steven Spielberg.

Other than that, the video was really cool.

The new movies are sequels to the original trilogy. The Old Republic would be prequels to the prequels.

If JJ Abrams grows his hair a little longer and grows a full beard, he will literally transform into Steven Spielberg.

funny video, but I was disapointed to find out it was only a joke. I think he should take some SERIOUS ideas from the fans!
