If the latest Star Trek is good, I'll have more hope. But MI-3 was generic, Super 8 was more Spielberg than Abrams (and lame).
I'll remain skeptical until I hear more.
Star Wars is right in his wheelhouse, though.
He tried to turn Star Trek into Star Wars and mostly succeeded.
To be honest just about anyone with some decent directorial chops is going to be a lot better than Lucas.
