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

An excerpt from the companion book has now gone viral thanks to a tweet from illustrator Livio Ramondelli, who shared two quotes from Lucas that don't seem to feature in the show. This is by no means the actor's first dalliance with Internet trolls, either, after he was forced to defend his role as a black Stormtrooper on the eve of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. "There's this world of creatures that operate differently than we do".

Star Wars fans have had a lot to celebrate recently: between May the Fourth and the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, this month has been jam-packed with Force energy.

Audiences may never know what Lucas planned - and Disney rejected - but fans now know it would have centered on the midi-chlorians. Nevertheless, the concept of the Whills didn't entirely die when Lucas gave up control of his company.

If Disney and LucasFilm continue their approach to make one Star Wars film a year, indefinitely, it would be interesting to see if they eventually come back and agree to make George Lucas' trilogy at some point in time, but that seems highly unlikely at this moment. Daisy Ridley, who played Jedi-in-training Rey, has been MIA since 2016 after fans took her comment about gun control the wrong way. Abrams and and Co. made a decision to take the story of the Star Wars sequels in a very different direction than Lucas had intended. Lucas had a sequel trilogy idea, one that he told Lucasfilm's new team, but that they opted not to follow-up on and went their own way instead. "The feed off the force". But for now, fans can at least start theorizing with this little peek into the Star Wars that could have been.

So not only was Luke supposed to die at very end of the Skywalker saga, but he was going to train Leia to be a Jedi.

And Lucas may be right in how fans would receive his larger focus on midi-chlorians, especially considering how some fans have reacted to what has appeared in the new movies.
