John Boyega has a message for online trolls harassing his co-stars

And when it comes to someone like George Lucas who had long ago planned a 9-episode story arc for his Star Wars films its perhaps even more frustrating because it was the director himself who made the decision to not complete the final three episodes of his vision. But an eagle-eyed Twitter user, Livio Ramdondelli, has spotted real clues in the companion book for the AMC TV show James Cameron's Story Of Science Fiction.

While Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a massive hit, both critically and commercially, there was a rather vocal cross-section of fans who spoke out against the movie, railing against director J.J. Abrams for making it too similar to themes and plot points in the iconic A New Hope.

"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".

Most recently, the idea would make an appearance in 2016s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story where two characters from that film were part of the “Guardians of the Whills”, protectors of the Temple of Kyber and its pilgrims on the planet Jeddha. 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.

He continued: "But there's this world of creatures that operate differently than we do". And the Whills are the ones that actually control the universe.

So, George Lucas wanted to explore the role of the creatures called Whills and how they feed off the Force and control it.

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.

Would you have liked to have seen Lucas' sequel trilogy? For one thing, The Last Jedi shied away from the midi-chlorian explanation of the Force and returned to the idea of it being a more spiritual essence, one that's present everywhere and in everything and won't die with the Jedi in Luke's first lesson to Rey. "Of course, a lot of 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." . The midi-chlorians are the ones that communicate with the Whills. How well that would have played on screen is another matter and something I guess we'll never know.
