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

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

We see George Lucas mentions delving into the "microbiotic world" of Star Wars, which is a reference to the prequels and the Midichlorians, which Lucas says are the creatures responsible for The Force.

Lucas no longer has any direct creative input into the Star Wars films, although he has been around them.

Back before he sold the company to the Mouse House in 2012, Lucas was drawing up plans for his own sequel trilogy, which would've involved both the old heroes, including a love interest for Luke Skywalker, and a new wave of characters that were set to be teenagers.

For those who missed the often-criticized prequel film "The Phantom Menace", midi-chlorians are intelligent microscopic life forms that resides within all living cells and channel the Force.

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.

While we may have recently got an episode VII and VIII in the current episodic trilogy that is closing out with J.J. Abrams' Episode IX in December next year, these stories actually had nothing to do with George Lucas. One user, who said he had a YouTube channel and faced harassment, told Boyega to "stop crying and playing the victim". "The feed off the force".

"If I'd held onto the company I could have done it, and then it would have been done", he continues.

Boyega followed that tweet up with another thanking the "majority of Star Wars fans" who "understand that there is a process".

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?

Would Lucas' sequel trilogy have been more controversial than Star Wars: The Last Jedi?
