New details of George Lucas' unused take on Star Wars Episode VII through to IX have come to light...

It’s well known that George Lucas, has he not sold his company to Disney, had plans for more Star Wars stories. That he 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.

Where Lucas’ story would have gone has thus far been kept pretty much under wraps. But an eagle-eyed Twitter user, Livio Ramdondelli, has spotted real clues in the companion book for the TV show James Cameron’s Story Of Science Fiction (that's playing on AMC in the US).

'Star Wars' Actress Kelly Marie Tran Leaves Social Media Following Months of Harassment

  'Star Wars' Actress Kelly Marie Tran Leaves Social Media Following Months of Harassment Tran is not the first 'Star Wars' actress to leave social media due to abuse. Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey in the new installments, deleted her account in 2016 after facing criticism after she posted on gun control. In an interview with Glamour in early December, Ridley said, "I posted a thing about gun regulations, because I was at an event in tribute to the Orlando shooting at Pulse. People weren't nice about how I looked. And I was like, 'I'm out.' Simple as that. That is not what I signed up for.

It’s well-known that George Lucas , has he not offered his firm to Disney, had plans for extra Star Wars tales. Nonetheless, the total story of Lucas ’ Star Wars sequels stays more likely to be untold. Whills and all…

George Lucas had a backup plan. It might not seem like such a bold move today – in the era of blockbuster franchises – to be planning for a sequel before the first movie has even been released. But not only did Lucas have a plan for a ' Star Wars ' sequel , he had two plans.

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”.

Lucas, though, added that he could have done the films “if I’d held onto the company”, but added 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 be told”.

NBA Free Agency Rumors: LeBron James, Paul George will talk about teaming up on Lakers, per Woj

  NBA Free Agency Rumors: LeBron James, Paul George will talk about teaming up on Lakers, per Woj This is what the Lakers cleared all this cap space for — just in case LeBron James wants to team up with another superstar, like Paul George. When Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka made the D’Angelo Russell trade it was with one goal in mind: To make themselves available in case LeBron James and/or another superstar wanted to team up with their Los Angeles Lakers. Well, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, this could very well play out in the coming months. Here’s how he puts it: “The most intriguing scenario remains him partnering with LeBron James on Los Angeles because Paul George alone doesn’t make them a championship contender, but partnering with LeBron there’s a fairly easy pathway for the Lakers to get that salary cap space. That’s going to be a conversation or conversations those guys are going to have once we get toward July.” Frankly, George and LeBron have probably had a conversation like this already. I have beachfront property in Arizona to sell anyone who honestly believes players wait until the end of their final season under contract to start figuring out who they want to play with and how best to make that happen. This is no different. George’s season in Oklahoma City did not live up to his or fans’ expectations. A team with an MVP, another star and a fading one like Carmelo Anthony had higher aspirations than a first-round exit at the hand of the Utah Jazz.

Plus, Lucas seemed enthusiastic about the prospect of more Star Wars films, saying that it was time for him to allow a new generation of filmmakers play in his sandbox. Furthermore, despite his claim that the core story is finished, Lucas did spend a year developing the sequel trilogy prior to the Disney

Mark Hamill reveals some details about George Lucas ' Star Wars : Episode IX, including the plan to While there are some similarities between Lucas ' sequels and Lucasfilm's movies, the two trilogies have some key differences. Which is another thread that was never played upon [in The Last Jedi]."

Lucas no longer has any direct creative input into the Star Wars films, although he has been around them. Ron Howard, for instance, told the Kermode & Mayo Film Review Programme the other week that Lucas was on the set of Solo one day, and helped Howard get a small detail about Han Solo right.

Still, the full story of Lucas’ Star Wars sequels remains likely to be untold. Whills and all…
