George Lucas Thinks Fans Would've Hated His Star Wars Sequels


"To the majority of Star Wars fans thank you for supporting and putting yourselves in our shoes", he added. But an eagle-eyed Twitter user, Livio Ramdondelli, has spotted real clues in the companion book for the AMC TV show James Cameron's Story Of Science Fiction.

For fans who are still wondering what a George Lucas Star Wars sequel trilogy would have looked like, we now have some insight into what the filmmaker had planned. In a 2015 Vanity Fair cover story that previewed The Force Awakens, director J.J. Abrams said that Lucas' Star Wars sequel trilogy would have focused on "very young characters" (with Lucasfilm saying that the characters would've been teenagers), but Disney and Lucasfilm distanced from that vision and ended up with older protagonists. If I held onto the company, I could have done it, and then it would have been done. The Journal of the Whills, a record of all events that transpired throughout the galaxy, was actually first used in George Lucas' earliest drafts of the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope.

The Star Wars fandom has been making waves in the news lately, and not due to their Han Solo-related takes.

"[The next three Star Wars films] were going to get into a microbiotic world". But there's this world of creatures that operate differently than we do. Daisy Ridley, who played Jedi-in-training Rey, has been MIA since 2016 after fans took her comment about gun control the wrong way.

Boyega's most recent post reads: "EP 9 loading. see ya!" - referring to the fact he's working on the new Star Wars film.

Lucas went on to state that, "of course, a lot of the fans would have hated it, just like they did Phantom Menace and everything, but at least the whole story from beginning to end would have been told".

John Boyega joins Mark Hamill and director Rian Johnson in calling out the toxic Star Wars fans who some feel bullied Kelly Marie Tran into straight-up deleting her entire Instagram feed.

We don't want to spoil things too much, but basically, Rose Tico is now the central protagonist, white men have been totally cut (in more ways than one), and there's a pretty massive spoiler headed your way about Chewie, but hey - we kind of always knew that was a possibility, right?
