James Cameron really wasn’t a fan of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Speaking in an interview with Hannah Litchfield, theTitanic filmmaker claimed that George Lucas’s original films “had more innovative visual imagination” than JJ Abrams’s follow-up.
Cameron noted that Star Wars creator Lucas “is a friend of mine”, adding: “I don’t want to say too much about [The Force Awakens] because I also have a lot of respect for JJ Abrams and I want to see where they’re taking it next.”
He added: “I have to say that I felt that George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before.
“And it took a few baby steps forward with new characters. So for me the jury’s out. I want to see where they go with it.”
