George Lucas Renders His Verdict on “The Force Awakens”
First, he was “divorced” from Star Wars. Now, George Lucas, the “godfather” of the franchise, has seen the first film he wasn’t involved in and given his blessing.
At the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington on Sunday, where Lucas was being honored for his lifetime achievements in arts and culture, he stopped on the red carpet just long enough to confirm he has indeed seen Episode VII, which was directed by J.J. Abrams and in which Lucas had zero involvement.
“I think the fans are going to love it,” he said. “It’s very much the kind of movie they’ve been looking for.”
Please note that he didn’t say HE liked it, but that the fans would like it. Considering that it was some of “the fans” that helped drive him away from Star Wars, one wonders what his full review might look like.
