Star Wars SHOCK: George Lucas ‘Fans would have HATED my sequel trilogy’
Back in 2012 Lucasfilm was sold to Disney for $4.05 billion, and we’re now two films into the official Star Wars sequel trilogy.
Of course Lucas himself almost directed Episodes VII, VIII and IX before he sold up, but not much has been known about his plans until now.
In a new interview, found in the companion book to James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction TV series, the Star Wars creator has spoken out on the details and claimed fans would have hated his sequel trilogy.
The 74-year-old billionaire said: “[The next three Star Wars film] were going to get into a macrobiotic world.”
He continued: “But there’s this world of creatures that operate differently than we do.
“I call them the Whills. And the Whills are the ones who actually control the universe. They feed off the Force.
“If I’d held onto the company I could have done it, and then it would have been done.
“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 be told.”
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.
Hamill continued: “George had an overall arc – if he didn’t have all the details, he had sort of an overall feel for where the [sequel trilogy was] going – but this one’s more like a relay race.
“You run and hand the torch off to the next guy, he picks it up and goes.”
Star Wars: Episode IX is released in UK cinemas on December 19, 2019.
