Star Wars SHOCK: George Lucas ‘Fans would have HATED my sequel trilogy’

John Boyega has a message for online trolls harassing his co-stars

John Boyega slams 'Star Wars' trolls after co-star left Instagram due to nasty comments

Disney's new Star Wars movies are proving incredibly divisive among fans, in particular The Last Jedi, but things apparently wouldn't have been much different had George Lucas held on to Lucasfilm.

James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction-a six-part series that aired on AMC in late April and May-explored different factions of science fiction and pop culture staples as Cameron interviewed numerous men who created those films.

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.

Stephen Colbert Made a Star Wars Episode IX Trailer to Stick It to Racist, Sexist Trolls

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. And in 2016's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the character of Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen) once was a devoted Guardian of the Whills.

"[The next three "Star Wars" films] were going to get into a microbiotic world", he told Cameron.

He continued: "But there's this world of creatures that operate differently than we do".

Spain sack national coach Julen Lopetegui before start of World Cup
Guillem Balague says Julen Lopetegui's appointment as Real Madrid manager came as a surprise, but insists fans will be happy. The Spanish Football Association have sacked Julen Lopetegui just a day after he was named the new Real Madrid manager.

Now, to rile up those nasty, close-minded idiots, Stephen Colbert has "partnered with Lucasfilm" to remix a unique, brand-new Star Wars trailer for Episode IX, created to rile these trolls who think the franchise exists only for them.

So, George Lucas wanted to explore the role of the creatures called Whills and how they feed off the Force and control it. I've got to say that it's probably a good thing the films didn't get made then because based on fan hatred for The Phantom Menace's midichlorians, which tried to provide a scientific explanation for The Force, it appears people don't want to know the inner working of the Force and just want to see the Jedi do insane things. But for now, fans can at least start theorizing with this little peek into the Star Wars that could have been.

While I admit I'm curious as to how Lucas planned to wrap up the storylines of the Original Trilogy characters, this idea of further explaining how the Force work sounds kind of awful.

Fed raises interest rates, says two more hikes likely in 2018
The Fed's new projection for the pace of rate hikes shows four this year , three in 2019 and one in 2020. They see another three rate increases next year , a pace unchanged from their projections in March.

The midi-chlorians comment is mentioned as part of a larger conversation about AI and religion within the context of Star Wars. How well that would have played on screen is another matter and something I guess we'll never know.
