John Boyega slams ‘Star Wars’ fans for harassing costars

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”. In the book James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction, which accompanied the AMC TV special, Lucas offered hints at what he had hoped to explore with the series of films, which would have tied more directly into The Phantom Menace than the original trilogy. I call them the Whills. One user, who said he had a YouTube channel and faced harassment, told Boyega to "stop crying and playing the victim". "You're not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude".

For fans who are still wondering what a George Lucas Star Wars sequel trilogy would have looked like, we now have some insight into what the filmmaker had planned. Direct mentions of the “Whills” and the “Shamans of the Whills” would appear in novels and Star Wars encyclopedias and was even in the original screenplay for 2005's Revenge of the Sith at one point. But for now, fans can at least start theorizing with this little peek into the Star Wars that could have been.

Lucas is confidant that had he kept his company, the Whills-focused films "would have been done". And the conduit is the midi-chlorians. "The Whills, in a general sense, they are the Force". Rogue One featured references to the Whills, as Chirrut Îmwe was described as being a former Guardian of the Whills who protected the Temple of the Kyber. He's attempting to explain the origins and objective of the sci-fi world he created by giving the universe its own creation myth. "And you know which of those two we're talking about here".

"All the way back to - with the Force and the Jedi and everything - the whole concept of how things happen was laid out completely from [the beginning] to the end". I never got to tell people about it.

"If I'd held onto the company I could've done it [seen the story through to its end], and then it would have been done".

The actor - who played Stormtrooper Finn - took to Twitter this week to air his grievances towards the pests in the wake of Kelly Marie Tran being forced off social media by a bunch of harassers who apparently didn't like the direction her character, Rose, went in on The Last Jedi.
