(AP) Another universe of sci-fi fans has been put in the hands of J.J. Abrams.


According to multiple trade reports, Abrams is set to direct the next installment of Star Wars, which Disney has said will be Episode 7 and due out in 2015. Disney bought Star Wars maker Lucasfilm last month for $4.06 billion.


The Emmy-award-winning director has also captained the reboot of Star Trek for rival studio Paramount Pictures, with the next installment in that series, Star Trek: Into Darkness, set to hit theaters May 17.


Citing unnamed sources, the news was reported earlier by Hollywood trade outlets The Wrap, The Hollywood Reporter and Daily Variety.


Messages left by The Associated Press for Abrams' representatives as well as Disney and Lucasfilm were not immediately returned.
