It’s been almost 10 days since the teaser trailer for the most anticipated movie in the Galaxy has been released. It appears that Star Wars creator George Lucas is amongst the few who still hasn’t seen the teaser. Find out why, after the jump…
Lucas spoke to PageSix at Bloomberg Businessweek’s 85th anniversary, which he attended with his wife, DreamWorks Animation chairwoman Mellody Hobson.
The original “Star Wars” creator astonishingly told Page Six when we asked him what he thought of Abrams’ 88-second teaser that’s managed to dominated popular culture, “I don’t know anything about it. I haven’t seen it yet.”
When we further asked Lucas why he hasn’t seen the clip, he explained, “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.”
A year ago, Lucas’ son, Jett Lucas, said in an interview that his dad, who’s credited as a creative consultant on the new film, was “constantly talking to J.J.,” and that “J.J. was handpicked.” But when we asked Lucas if he was curious to see what Abrams has done with the new “Star Wars,” Lucas said, “Not really.”
Well, Mr. Lucas might have not seen the teaser but it doesn’t hurt us to watch it again for the thousandth time. 🙂
