George Lucas Says Fans Will Love The Force Awakens


george-lucasWe learned last week that George Lucas has seen The Force Awakens and really liked it, and now he’s commented more on the first Star Wars movie he’s not involved in.

Vulture got this quote from Lucas when he was collecting his honor from the Kennedy Center this weekend:

“I think the fans are going to love it,” he said. “It’s very much the kind of movie they’ve been looking for.”

It almost sounds like he’s surrendering to the internet bullying that scared him away from Star Wars by saying what the fans want isn’t exactly what he’d make himself…
