If you thought fans were mad at Rian Johnson, just imagine how they may have felt about George Lucas's direction for the Star Wars sequel trilogy. The clue comes from the companion book to AMC's 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 have done it, and then it would have been done", he said. Initially, Star Wars was meant to be a story that was told as if it was contained in a collection of stories called The Journal of the Whills.

In the book, George Lucas is quoted talking about his ideas for the films, saying that they, "were going to get into a microbiotic world".

He continued: "But there's this world of creatures that operate differently than we do".

"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. Lucasfilm though has other issues to worry about at the moment because thanks to Solo's recent box office owes, the studio is no longer guaranteed of box office success and needs to return to the drawing board on exactly how they can keep people dedicated to the Star Wars universe. Given how people have reacted to changes regarding the Force in the new movies, as well as the midi-chlorians in the prequels, Lucas' assumptions were probably correct. "The feed off the force".

We've heard bits and pieces of the Star Wars trilogy Lucas wanted to make over the years. 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.

The midi-chlorians comment is mentioned as part of a larger conversation about AI and religion within the context of Star Wars.

Taking advantage of the uptake in traffic on his page, Boyega took the opportunity to let his fans know he's now filming another instalment, which is sure to excite the lot of you.
