Steven Spielberg may never have directed a Star Wars film (though he did direct some pre-viz work for Revenge of the Sith) but he's connected to the franchise through his friends since the beginning. He's close friends with creator George Lucas, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, and The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams. Through connections he's always had a unique insight into the franchise, and he's one of the few people who have seen The Force Awakens (three times!) He spoke with the French news website RTL about the new film, saying,
"I think The Force Awakens could be the biggest movie of all time."
That's pretty high praise from one of the greatest directors today. Spielberg has always been excited about Star Wars, so if he likes fans will probably be pretty happy with it.
