The Star Wars creator apparently spoke to The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson after a recent screening of the film, which has received (mostly) rave reviews across the board.
After seeing the flick, George thought it was ‘beautifully made,’ Connie Wethington, a rep for Lucas told Heat Vision.
‘And, in speaking with director Rian Johnson after viewing, was complimentary.’
George Lucas criticised previous instalment The Force Awakens for being a ‘retro movie’, so it seems like he’s definitely happier with Rian Johnson’s direction for the franchise.

Lucas spearheaded the world of Star Wars and directed the first film, A New Hope, which launched the franchise in 1977.
He also wrote and directed the much-maligned prequel trilogy, which has slightly tainted his ‘father’ figure hold over Star Wars ever since.
The film’s premiere also saw a wealth of stars in attendance, including Prince Harry and Prince William.
