Vulture reports, “George Lucas Delivered His Verdict on The Force Awakens“:
At the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington on Sunday, where Lucas was being honored for his lifetime achievements in arts and culture, he stopped on the red carpet just long enough to confirm he has indeed seen Episode VII, which was directed by J.J. Abrams and in which Lucas had zero involvement. Cue the John Williams music:
“I think the fans are going to love it,” he said. “It’s very much the kind of movie they’ve been looking for.”
Record scratch the John Williams music.
Is this an endorsement, or a condemnation? If a condemnation, a condemnation of who — Abrams, Disney, the fans, or all of the above?
