It isn’t news that series creator George Lucas didn’t see the trailer for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ until a full month after it was released, and now we’ve found out that a snub by Disney could even be the reason why. What kind of snub did the Mouse give George? It sounds as if Lucas had some ideas that he felt would be great for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and those ideas were left in a galaxy far far away instead of being included in the film.
Many wondered if Lucas would have any say in the upcoming movie or if Disney would be taking full control of the franchise moving forward. Well, it seems that they are quite enjoying taking full creative control of the films. This will be good news to quite a few fans out there as many have been quite displeased with Lucas and his constant need to re-release the original trilogy and general disdain that many also felt towards the second trilogy.
In a recent interview it seems that Lucas already had an idea for a seventh ‘Star Wars’ film when Disney purchased Lucasfilm and while he had suggested it, none were used. What happened with them? Well..
“The ones that I sold to Disney, they came up to the decision that they didn’t really want to do those. So they made up their own. So it’s not the ones that I originally wrote [on screen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens].”
Lucas wasn’t willing to share his ideas for a seventh film or his replacement for Jar Jar which clearly was in the cards but it looks as if the Force (and a lot of money from Disney) will prevent that idea from ever reaching the big screen.

Are you happy to hear that Lucas’ ideas were shot down or would you have preferred that he remained on board to take us on another adventure?
