It's about stormtroopers versus T-rex, but it's all in the family.

The creator of the "Star Wars" saga, George Lucas, is absolutely confident that the seventh episode of the franchise, "The Force Awakens," will be an unprecedented success at the box office.

He is also willing to bet that it will crush the most successful tape of 2015: "Jurassic World".

During the premiere, he said so to the producer of the dinosaurs movie, Frank Marshall.

"You're not going to beat my movie, are you?" Marshall asked Lucas, jokingly. "Jurassic is No. 1. Remember that."

Lucas responded: "The job is they have to crush you like a bug."

The two embraced and walked out of the shot.

Jurassic World opened at $208.8 million at the domestic box office, a record. Many box-office experts predict that "The Force Awakens" will break that record. 

It is worth mentioning that Marshall and Lucas are very close, since the producer is the husband of the President of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy.
