The first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been viewed 72 million times since its release more than a week ago, but there’s one person who still hasn’t seen it: George Lucas.
The franchise’s creator, as well as director of four of the previous six installments, revealed to Page Six he’s managed to avoid the 88-second teaser watched ’round the world. “I don’t know anything about it,” Lucas admitted. “I haven’t seen it yet.”
He said he intends to see The Force Awakens footage when it’s complete and part of a finished film. “I like going to the movies and watching the whole thing there,” Lucas said. “I plan to see it when it’s released.”
The seventh installment in the Star Wars franchise marks the first time Lucas hasn’t been directly involved in a storytelling role; he serves as consultant to the J.J. Abrams directed film. Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012 for $4.06 billion.
Lucas also admitted he’s “not really” curious to see what Abrams and co-writer Lawrence Kasdan have created for the film. Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens on Dec. 18, 2015.
