Some Star Trek fans weren't too pleased with the news that director J.J. Abrams was hand-picked to helm Star Wars Episode VII, especially after Abrams successfully rebooted the Trek franchise with 2009's Star Trek and its upcoming sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness. But no one seems to be angrier about the situation than the original Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner.
While being interviewed by Movie Fanatic about his part in the animated movie Escape From Planet Earth, which opens this week, Shatner called Abrams a "pig" for taking on both franchises, even though he considers Abrams "a buddy."
