George Lucas is a friend of mine, and George and I had a good conversation about it. I don’t want to say too much about the film as I have a lot of respect for J.J. Abrams. I want to see where they’re taking it next, see what they’re doing with it. But I gotta say I think that George’s six films had more innovative visual imagination. And this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before. It took a few baby steps forward with new characters. But for me the jury is out, I want to see where they go with it.
