George Lucas Star Wars: The Force Awakens Stephen Colbert

Tribeca Film interview

18 Apr, 2015

Lucas is asked about Star Wars trailers by Colbert at the Tribeca Film Festival.

I have seen the first one. I just saw what was on CBS but I’m going to try to look at it. I want to see it on the big screen.

About the film:

Well, you know, I hope it’s successful. I hope they do a great job. I’m excited…I have no idea what they’re doing.

In turn Lucas asks Colbert why he did not take over The Daily Show:

Trevor Noah is a very funny guy. I don’t want to be the guy to take over for Jon Stewart. I worked for Jon Stewart at that show and my memories will always be of him being the keenest, most intelligent . . . the clearest thinker I have ever worked with before and I just don’t want to. I would never get underneath his shadow. For me, someone who doesn’t know him as well . . . might have a better time on that show than I ever would.
