With just about everybody on the planet glued to their chairs the Friday the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer was released, guess who wasn’t interested in watching it?
Star Wars creator George Lucas.
Lucas sold Star Wars and LucasFilm to Disney for the hefty sum of $4 billion and has remained on board as a creative consultant; however, it is learned that George Lucas knows nothing about the trailer.
“I don’t know anything about it. I haven’t seen it yet,” Lucas told Page Six.
Lucas continues with mention of why he hasn’t seen the Force Awakens trailer.
“Because it’s not in the movie theaters,” Lucas explained. “I like going to the movies and watching the whole thing there. I plan to see it when it’s released.”
