George Lucas Gives High Praise To ‘The Last Jedi’

The Maker himself, Mr. George Lucas, has seen Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi and spoke with the director afterwards to offer his opinion of the film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lucas came away very impressed with the eighth theatrical film in the Skywalker saga that he created.

Lucas gave J.J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens a thumbs-up after seeing the final cut of that film and also enjoyed the first Star Wars standalone film, Rogue One, directed by Gareth Edwards.

George Lucas has seen The Last Jedi, and he was highly impressed.

The Star Wars creator recently screened the highly anticipated upcoming installment and thought it was “beautifully made,” Connie Wethington, a rep for Lucas, told Heat Vision.

“And in speaking with director Rian Johnson after viewing was complimentary,” she added.

It’s great to see Lucas giving his stamp of approval on these new films. Whether he is giving them such high praise because he truly feels they deserve it, or if he is just doing so to “play the PC game” is not ours to determine. Here’s hoping the final film in the Sequel Trilogy (also being directed by Abrams) is met with the same level of satisfaction from The Maker.
