(AP) It's official. The force is with J.J. Abrams.


The Walt Disney Co. issued a statement Friday night confirming reports that had been circulating for two days that Abrams, creator of TV's Lost and director of 2009's Star Trek movie, has been pegged to direct the seventh installment of the Star Wars franchise.


Disney said the movie will have a script from Toy Story 3 writer Michael Arndt and a 2015 release.


Lawrence Kasdan, who wrote two of the movies in the original trilogy, will work as a consultant on the new project.


Disney bought Star Wars maker Lucasfilm last month for $4.06 billion.


Star Wars creator George Lucas said in the statement that Abrams is the ideal choice of director and his legacy couldn't be in better hands.
