How various Hollywood directors would approach the new Star Wars movies

Recently, Disney announced that it bought Lucasfilm and that it plans on making more Star Wars movies.

Conan O'Brien had a particular funny bit on his show on how the movies would look if director Wes Anderson had helmed the Star Wars movies, which you can watch above.

This, of course, got me thinking about how other famous directors might take on the Star Wars movies:

Michael Bay: Explosions! Explosions! We need more explosions! And a Transformer! More than meets the Jedi!

Quentin Tarantino: No, no, no. Not explosions. Chainsaw lightsaber guns.  And Danny Trejo.

Woody Allen: Maybe the Jedi don't really won't to be Jedi? I mean maybe they just want to be who they want to be. And those lightsabers. Who wants to swings those around? I mean, you could burn someone's eye out.

M. Night Shyamalan: The first one should be great, but then all the rest of the sequels should be horrendous, I mean, just absolutely terrible and unwatchable.

Steven Soderbergh: I agree with M. Night, but we should keep adding to the cast so that they becomes particularly unwatchable.

Michael Moore: Somebody needs to figure out how the Jedi are secretly ruining our water supply! How has no one researched this yet?

George Romero: Zombies. Jedi zombies. Game over, George Lucas. Game over.
