Well, it’s true to say that love it (we did) or hate it (we did not), the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer caused quite a stir with it already being the most watched trailer of all time but curiously, not everyone seemed that bothered…
The Maker himself, George Lucas, hasn’t bothered yet! Seriously. Talking to Page Six, Lucas was asked what he thought if the trailer and dropped a bombshell: “I don’t know anything about it. I haven’t seen it yet.”
However, he quickly made amends with this comeback: “Because it’s not in the movie theater. I like going to the movies and watching the whole thing there…..I plan to see it when it’s released.”
However, to add insult to injury, he was asked if he’s excited to see what JJ Abrams is doing with the franchise, to which he replied: “Not really.”
Ah well, we still love you uncle George…
