  • John Boyega gives ‘rude’ Star Wars fans a piece of his mind

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

"Be careful there son - the last time I let a fan put themself in my shoes, they just took off running & sold them on Ebay", Hamill wrote. I've got to say that it's probably a good thing the films didn't get made then because based on fan hatred for The Phantom Menace's midichlorians, which tried to provide a scientific explanation for The Force, it appears people don't want to know the inner working of the Force and just want to see the Jedi do insane things. The prequels were mostly rejected by Star Wars fans, although opinion has shifted slightly in the years since they were released, and the saga looked dead until Disney came along. 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". 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”.

As for what would've been in the trilogy, Lucas reveals in the interview that he was "figuring out a way to explain [the Force] that didn't piss people off" after the reaction to midi-chlorians in the prequels.

Would you have liked to have seen Lucas' sequel trilogy? Last week, Tran deleted all the photos from her account as reports surfaced saying that online harassment was to blame - mostly because certain "Star Wars" fans don't like her character from "The Last Jedi", Rose Tico. The trilogy may have potentially included a Jedi temple that had Lucas' seal of approval, showed Leia Organa using the Force (which we ended up getting in The Last Jedi) and training with her brother Luke Skywalker, and Luke dying at the end of Episode IX.

FactCheck: What happened to Brexit in Parliament yesterday?
This is where Conservative rebels like Nicky Morgan, Anna Soubry and Ken Clark are expected to make their biggest move on customs. The Lords' amendment, which MPs rejected, went further in requiring the withdrawal agreement to be placed on a statutory footing.

Lucas' vision of what he wanted to do with Star Wars will never make it to the big screen the way he wanted to-although there may be more instances of certain aspects trickling in there.

Now, with The Classic Star Wars Gamer Bundle, you can celebrate the fandom even more for the low price of $6.60 ($US5).

And Lucas may be right in how fans would receive his larger focus on midi-chlorians, especially considering how some fans have reacted to what has appeared in the new movies.
