Here’s a story you’re likely to see spun by the George Lucas haters who infest the internet. You know, the ones who believe that Lucas is so hated that they have to make flimsy documentaries without any supporting evidence to back up their displeasure that Star Wars didn’t grow up with them, but remained a kids movie with the Prequels. This poor, messed up, crowd is so delusional that they’ll try to twist any Lucas quote or bit of news to fit their agenda, and this story is one you’ll see them try to do it to this week.
â€œI donâ€™t know anything about it. I havenâ€™t seen it yet.â€ says Lucas.
â€œBecause itâ€™s not in the movie theater. I like going to the movies and watching the whole thing there. I plan to see it when itâ€™s released.â€
Here’s going to be the narrative about this from the nutbars in the “F George Lucas” crowd: “Episode VII is so much better than the Prequels that George Lucas refuses to watch it!”
The reality is that’s not what he says at all. He says he’s waiting to see the whole movie in theaters, as opposed to just 88 seconds in a short teaser. But Star Wars fans need to brace themselves for a whole new round of Lucas bashing from assholes on the internet today.
