Simon Pegg: 'I don't have a great wish to be in Star Wars'

From Digital Spy

Simon Pegg has revealed that he is not pursuing a role in Jj Abrams's Star Wars: Episode VII.

The actor reprises his role as Scotty in Abrams's Star Trek Into Darkness, but says he has no particular desire to collaborate with the director on Disney's new Star Wars films.

"It's not one of my great wishes to be in Star Wars," Pegg told Industria magazine. "I'd love to go to the cinema and just watch it."

He went on to express relief that George Lucas will be involved with the new films only as a creative consultant.

"I'll always have a soft spot for George Lucas because he made the original films, but those prequels were dreadful and if he were making more Star Wars films, I'd be worried."

Pegg recently suggested that Abrams will save the Star Wars franchise by "bringing the fun back" to it.
