George Lucas had another plan for the sequel trilogy prior to selling Lucas Film to Disney.
A Saga untold...
After hearing the buzz of the net that George Lucas had another plan for the sequel trilogy prior to selling Lucas Film to Disney. More info on this will be in Star Wars Archives 1999-2005 Ep I-III made by Paul Duncan who interviewed George Lucas for this book.
Here is a short summary from Star Wars Archives 1999-2005 author:
“George Lucas' plan for the sequel trilogy included: Darth Maul and Darth Talon as the villains; Luke rebuilding the Jedi Order from survivors of Order 66; Leia forming the New Republic, becoming the Chosen One.” -Paul Duncan.
This would have been the initial plan post Return of the Jedi that George was planning to do early 2000s prior to when he revamped the story that would have involved the new script he had given Disney; which they scrapped. As intrigued as I am by the idea behind this I think “The Chosen One” concept should have been put to bed since Anakin redeemed himself, brought balance to the force thus fulfilling his destiny. Not saying I wouldn’t back the idea of Leia being the actual chosen one, but ending prophecy with Anakin is a poetic wrap-up to his arc. However, since the prequels were about Anakin’s backstory and how he became Darth Vader, and the initial Star Wars films being about his son, it would have been appropriate to have the initial sequel trilogy focus on Leia.
Unfortunately, we won't get this story as awesome as it probably would have been, if properly executed with the right director to temper and guide Georges’ wild imagination and ideas. For now my fellow nerds and nerdettes we can only add this to the archives of fan fiction.a blog is a great way to position yourself as an authority in your field and captivate your readers’ attention.
