JJ Abrams on The Daily Show

By: Dominic Jones

Star Wars Episode VII director JJ Abrams, made an appearance on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart to promote his new film Star Trek: Into Darkness.  Naturally, with Stewart being a big Star Wars fan, the conversation turned to Star Wars multiple times.  Some of the Star Wars highlights include:

  • Stewart telling Abrams that now, since Abarams is directing both franchises, he will no longer be attending Star Wars or Star Trek conventions but will instead just be sitting on Abrams lap
  • Stewart requesting a role in Episode VII
  • Abrams using a Jedi mind trick on Stewart saying jokingly "You don't want to be in Star Wars"
