When George Lucas was talking about the sale of Lucasfilm in those slightly odd hostage-style videos, it was revealed that he’d passed onto Disney the nucleus of an idea for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and beyond.
It seems JJ Abrams and co have opted to move on without it.
“The [sequel ideas] that I sold to Disney, they came up to the decision that they didn’t really want to do those,” Lucas told CinemaBlend.
“So they made up their own. So it’s not the ones that I originally wrote [on screen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens].”
To be honest, that’s kinda for the best…
Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released on 18 December 2015. For the latest Star Wars: Episode VII news, subscribe to SciFiNow and save 30% off the cover price.
