'Star Wars: Episode VII': George Lucas hasn't talked to JJ Abrams
We don't know just how involved retired "Star Wars" creator George Lucas will be with the upcoming Episode VII, directed by JJ Abrams and written by Michael Arndt, but Lucas himself has revealed he hasn't yet spoken with Abrams about the project.
Lucas attended the Daytime Emmys over the weekend to accept an Emmy for (the now canceled) "Star Wars: Clone Wars" in the category of Outstanding Special Class Animated Program. Access Hollywood asked him about the new "Star Wars" movie -- for which he's expected to act as "creative consultant" -- after the win.
You can check out the full interview above, but here's the key quote: "I have not spoken to J.J. He's been busy with 'Star Trek,' and I'm sure that he'll let me know when he's got some questions. So, you know, that's all going well. [Lucasfilm President] Kathy [Kennedy] tells me it's working out great."
