J.J. Abrams was at Jimmy Kimmel’s show last night promoting his new movie Star Trek Into Darkness. Things got pretty hilarious when members from the audience had some weird suggestions to make about the upcoming Star Wars movie.

In other news, The Incredibles and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol director Brad Bird shared why he had to turn down Lucasfilm’s offer to direct Episode 7:
I’ve known Kathy [Kennedy] for a while and I know George [Lucas]. And they did come to me. But the problem was, the schedule they had in mind made it impossible to do…unless I dropped Tomorrowland. And I was just really deeply into this film at that point. It’s easy to say, “Just put it on hold.” But you’re moving now; you don’t know if you’re going to be able to move later. Maybe it’s true of filmmakers like Cameron or Spielberg, but I have to act on momentum. We had reached a critical mass where it would’ve thrown the furniture around from the train stopping. I really want to see this movie. I love the Star Wars films, and I can’t wait to see what J.J. does, but it meant I’d have to shut down one dream to participate in another. I feel like [with Tomorrowland] we’re making something that’s really special and unique.
