It was announced that Disney has bought Lucasfilm for 4.05 billion dollars. Not only that, but they have also stated that they will begin making new Star Wars films starting with Episode 7 that will be released in 2015, with new films being released every 1-3 years.

Since Lucas will no longer be attached as director for the new series it opens the door for some amazing opportunities. Who would be your favorite choice to direct the new Star Wars movies? Vote up your favorites and add any that have been missed.
