The teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens launched ten days ago and has been watched millions of times in that short span, but one person who hasn’t watched it is the creator of the franchise, George Lucas. Speaking with Page Six, Lucas revealed he hasn’t seen the trailer just yet, but he will see the whole movie eventually.
“I don’t know anything about it. I haven’t seen it yet.” When asked why, Lucas replied: “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.”
Lucas was also asked if he was curious to see what director J.J. Abrams has done with the series for it’s seventh chapter, to which he reportedly replied: “Not really.”
Though Lucas may not be curious about what Abrams is doing, the rest of the planet clearly is as “The Force Awakens” trailer has brought in over 100 million views in one week. Check it out one more time in the player below along with SNL’s parody from this week!
