“And That’s How I Got To Be Rich”: George Lucas and Stephen Colbert on the New ‘Star Wars,’ Critics, and Those Special Editions
Okay, first things first: George Lucas has not yet seen the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer that we all lost our minds over this week. But, as with that brief tempest-in-a-teapot over not seeing the last one, it’s not a question of snubbing, but of trailer-viewing preference. “I just saw it on CBS, but I’m gonna try to look at it,” he told Stephen Colbert at a Tribeca Film Festival “Tribeca Talks” conversation Friday afternoon, explaining, “I want to see it on the big screen.”
“I’ve got it on my phone,” Colbert interjected, taking out his device helpfully.
