James Cameron Throws Shade at J.J. Abrams & 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'
“I have to say that I felt that George [Lucas]‘s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before,” James said about the new film. “It took a few baby steps forward with new characters. So, for me, the jury is out. I want to see where they go with it.”
Star Wars: The Force Awakens happens to be the third grossing film of all time, behind two of James‘ films (Titanic and Avatar).
