Lucas has confirmed numerous times in the past that he had been secretly developing his own sequel trilogy, although it became quite clear early on that Disney did not want Lucas to be involved in any way shape or form, but now new details have surfaced regarding Lucas' plans for this trilogy.

In the AMC TV special “James Camerons Story of Science Fiction”, the longtime director speaks with many experts in the field of science fiction from directors to writers to actual scientists.

Lucas says that his vision for the next three Star Wars films - Episodes VII to IX - "were going to get into a microbiotic world". But there's this world of creatures that operate differently than we do.

"I call them the Whills". Daisy Ridley, who played Jedi-in-training Rey, has been MIA since 2016 after fans took her comment about gun control the wrong way. "The feed off the force".

In a series of tweets, the 26-year-old actor asked Star Wars fans that he doesn't care if they bought a ticket to see the movie or not, stop harassing his castmates. They are essentially a bunch of tiny creatures who happen to have control over the entire universe by tapping into the largest force there is, so large it's literally called THE force; what a bizzare contradiction. 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. Here's the second part of Lucas' quote, where he talks about how the fans may have reacted to this story. If I held onto the company, I could have done it, and then it would have been done.

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.

Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney back in 2012 for $4.05bn (£2.5bn). One of the people he spoke with was George Lucas who discussed at length about the publics fascination with the science fiction genre and how it led to the success of Star Wars.

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. Take a look at the tweet from Livio Ramondelli Twitter below.
