George Lucas hasn’t seen the new ‘Star Wars’ trailer and doesn’t plan on it

George Lucas must live somewhere amid the icy, remote Hoth system, because that’s the only way he could have possibly managed to avoid the trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” “I don’t know anything about it,” Lucas told the New York Post of the trailer. The billionaire-franchise mastermind, who sold Lucasfilm to Disney in 2012, is officially listed as a creative consultant on the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel, but evidently it’s a pretty loose title.

I like going to the movies and watching the whole thing there. I plan to see it when it’s released.
