Access Hollywood caught up with Lucas on the red carpet, who had just been handed his award by Carrie Fisher. Talk very quickly turned to Star Wars: Episode VII, where the retiree revealed how relieved he is not to have to worry about the sequel.
He then revealed that director J.J. Abrams has been too busy to speak with him about the hugely anticipate project.
George Lucas is notorious for imposing his views on other creative artists, and getting his way when it comes to Star Wars. It sounds like J.J. Abrams might be staying away to keep his own artistic integrity on Star Wars: Episode VII in check.
Star Wars: Episode VII comes to theaters December 18th, 2015 and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.
