J.J Abrams Has The Maker's Approval

By: Benjamin Hart

George Lucas is in the news once again, this time talking about Episode VII director J.J Abrams. Access Hollywood reports that the Maker himself had some very positive things to say about J.J:
"Yeah, [I'm excited]. J.J.'s a great director and we're friends," George told Access Hollywood at the 2013 Crystal + Lucy Awards, when asked if he's looking forward to J.J.'s films. "I think he understands the whole thing and how it works.... And if he doesn't, [Lucasfilms president] Kathy [Kennedy] will keep it straight," he added with a laugh.
As for his own involvement in the next three films, George said he won’t be doing “much.” “If they need help or anything, they’ll give me a call,” he said. “Otherwise, I’m off on my own.”

George also had this to say about critics:

“No matter how you do it, it’s a complicated cultural icon. Therefore you’re always going to be in trouble no matter what you do. So, the best thing you can do is just plow forward and try to do the best story you can.”

With GL's approval do you have more faith in Episode VII? Let us know why, or why not, in the comments below!
