When asked last December if he’d seen the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, George Lucas said he hadn’t – yet. He stated that he was going to wait till he could see the movie in a theater. It seemed he wasn’t a big fan of trailers, or perhaps he as wishing to stay spoiler-free now that he’s no longer personally invested in the film. Circumstances have changed, however.
While attending the premiere of his new animated film Strange Magic this past Saturday, Lucas was asked once again if he’d seen the teaser. This time, the answer was affirmative! The creator of Star Wars told Page Six:
“I saw the trailer. I saw it in a theater because I don’t watch movies online.”
When asked if he liked it, he smiled. “Yeah, it was intriguing.”
Well, there you have it! The Maker has finally seen the teaser that the rest of us haven’t been able to get enough of since its release last November.
Now, the question is — Has he caved in and watched it online? It’s not likely he’d say, even if he did. 😉
