George Lucas reveals details about what his sequel trilogy would’ve been about

Any longtime Star Wars fan will recognize the “Whills” reference as it was a major part of Lucas first Star Wars draft, which was originally titled, “Journal of the Whills”.

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. 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.

Star Wars actor John Boyega has urged fans of the franchise to stop harassing the cast on social media.

The name Whills has appeared in Star Wars before, although not in the form of alien creatures - instead, we saw the Guardians of the Whills in Rogue One, while Lucas' original title for Star Wars was Adventures of Luke Starkiller, as taken from the Journal of the Whills, Saga I: The Star Wars.

"(The next three Star Wars films) were going to get into the microbiotic world.


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

For some fans who did not take too well to the director's prequel trilogy (which, for the record, I actually enjoyed, even though they weren't perfect), that is probably a huge sigh of relief, but for many it leaves them wondering just what could've been, especially given the controversies around Rian Johnson's Episode VIII, which many fans did not like. Lucasfilm though has other issues to worry about at the moment because thanks to Solo's recent box office owes, the studio is no longer guaranteed of box office success and needs to return to the drawing board on exactly how they can keep people dedicated to the Star Wars universe. They feed off the Force.

For those who don't know, the idea of the Whills is something George Lucas had always meant to be a larger part of Star Wars.

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". And the conduit is the midi-chlorians. "And you know which of those two we're talking about here".
