"J.J. [Abrams] [is] a very good director, he really is", said Burton." He directed the hell out of the first movie. I'm really interested to see what he wants to talk about in his upcoming movie....[But] I'm disappointed, quite frankly, that his timeline negates the existence of Next Gen. I think that's silly."
And now, for no particularly good reason, a video of Burton singing the "Reading Rainbow" theme at a Star Trek convention.
