J.J. Abrams Hears 'Star Wars' Ideas from William Shatner, Billy Dee Williams
Director takes fan suggestions in 'Kimmel' appearance

Although J.J. Abrams stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote his latest effort, Star Trek: Into Darkness, he unsurprisingly ended up talking about his other big sci-fi project: The upcoming Star Wars reboot. Admitting he and the writers had hit something of a wall with the script, Kimmel encouraged Abrams to take some suggestions from a few Star Wars superfans in the audience.

New 'Star Wars' Films Could Arrive Every Summer

While two costumed nerds voiced their support of a Princess Leia and Chewbacca hook-up, Billy Dee Williams showed up to advocate a smooth two-hour movie with only Lando Calrissian making sweet, galactic love to a bunch of ladies. William Shatner also stopped by to add his own ideas to the pot: Forget Han Solo and Lando when you could have Captain Kirk taking the road trip of a lifetime (plus, he's already written the script)! And Shatner wants to see Leia and Chewie do it too – he's even made sketches.
