George Lucas hasn't seen the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens — and he wants to keep it that way. In a sit-down interview with Stephen Colbert at the Tribeca Film Festival, Lucas said he does not want to see any footage of the new installment in the Star Wars franchise until he can see it on the big screen. (Which isn't the first time we've heard that.)
Variety reports that Lucas will wait until "he can watch on it on something other than a phone or a computer." Handheld devices might be too pedestrian for the director, who helmed the four previous Star Wars movies — but apparently, so is actually going to the movies. According to Variety, Lucas might skip the lines altogether and watch it at home: "He mentioned the possibility of streaming it to his own bigscreen."
Movie stars: they're just like us. Watching The Force Awakens, though, will be an exciting experience for Lucas — he said his only regret that he's never had the chance to watch Star Wars without knowing everything that went into it.
"I don’t know anything about it," he told Colbert. "This time it’ll be very thrilling." So shhh, you heard the man — no spoilers!
