Via Insight Editions’ publication James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction, which ties into the AMC series of the same name, Star Wars creator George Lucas revealed a few details on how he would have approached Episodes VII-IX if he was still running Lucasfilm. There have been several reports/theories over the years about this topic of conversation, but here we get some real concrete information directly from Lucas himself. Lucas was prepared to take the franchise to a new “microbiotic world” featuring creatures called the Whills (a name Star Wars fans are familiar with) that were exceptionally powerful based off their ability to harness the power of the Force.
The book Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi contains a few bits of information on Lucas’ vision for the Sequel Trilogy as well, specifically Episode VII.
Sounds like the Sequel Trilogy would have been a very different animal had Lucas continued on with the franchise.
As far as I've seen, these are the first specifics George Lucas has shared about what his vision of Episodes 7-9 would have been. This comes from @insighteditions awesome companion book to "James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction series" on AMC: pic.twitter.com/Wtlw8zlrqv
