Perhaps Barack Obama and Donald Trump can see Star Wars: The Force Awakens together.

Asked during Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live if he will see the new film, Trump said he “might.” Not that the Republican presidential hopeful is caught up on the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Organa.

“I watched maybe one or two [of the previous films],” Trump told Kimmel. “I’m so busy, I don’t have a lot of time for this to be honest.”

Despite not seeing all six Star Wars movies, Trump praised the franchise as “great stuff” and singled out creator George Lucas. “The job he’s done is fantastic,” Trump said of Lucas, who was not heavily involved in making The Force Awakens.

Trump’s comments came just after White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters he was confident that President Obama would see the new film “at some point.”

The Force Awakens opens Friday.
