Ahhh, sometimes it’s wonderful when worlds collide. J. J. Abrams and Simon Pegg, director of and star of Abrams’ Star Trek films, respectively, here discuss the new Star Wars film that Abrams will be directing in the near future.
It’s a fascinating look at two examples of shared fandom between franchises that have had a long reputation as being at odds with one another. As a life-long fan of both franchises, it’s enough to warm my heart. I do feel I should warn you though; towards the end of the short video, Pegg does offer a potential spoiler about the name* of the new film.
The video was released by Sky Films, and apparently is an excerpt from an interview they were doing on the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness film. Do you feel as I do, that it’s only fine and natural to be loyal to both franchises? Or do you subscribe to “Star ____ is WAY better than Star ____!” instead? Let us know in the comments!
*Not really. He was kidding. I hope.
