It was just last month that George Lucas revealed he's one of the relatively few people who hadn't seen the 88-second teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, explaining, "I like going to the movies and watching the whole thing there. I plan to see it when it’s released.”
Well, now that's changed. “I saw the trailer," the filmmaker told the New York Post's Page Six. "I saw it in a theater because I don’t watch movies online.”
So? Did he like it? “Yeah, it was intriguing," he replied with a smile.
Arriving in theaters Dec. 18, The Force Awakens marks the first Star Wars film with which Lucas hasn't been directly involved. It was revealed just last week that he initially planned to develop the new trilogy himself, and release Episode VII in May 2015 before selling Lucasfilm. However, Disney had other plans, and bought the company in 2012 for $4.06 billion.
