We now know the direction George Lucas would have gone if he had the reigns for the Star Wars sequel trilogy.
Thank the Maker! The response Star Wars fans should have in regards to George Lucas and the fantastic gift that his galaxy far, far away indeed is for us all.
Instead, much of the fandom is not appreciative of his efforts, and those he passed the lightsaber to at Lucasfilm once he retired. Honestly, it’s well beyond a lack of gratefulness. Instead, it’s now escalating to pure hatred and bullying — ultimately leading to the early retirement of George Lucas himself.
It’s a shame because we will never know what Geoge Lucas would’ve come up with if he still held the reigns to the Star Wars story. Lucky for us, George Lucas told AMC’s, James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction television series his sequel trilogy plans, which was recorded in the Insight Editions companion book for the series.

The Lost Missions story arc revealed these celestial Force beings, guiding Master Yoda to a path of enlightenment.
The original title for Star Wars: A New Hope was indeed, Adventures of the Starkiller as taken from the Journal of the Whills, Saga I. The Whills have always been apart of the Force and long term plan of George Lucas.

In fact, people would have complained about it, just like everything else — the Special Additions. The prequels. Midichlorians. Everything.
George Lucas admits that he retired due to the fan hatred he received. He was overwhelmed with grief, and it’s the fans that burnt him out, “Forcing” him into an early retirement. The Maker, George Lucas reveals more of that truth during this particular interview.
"“If I held on to the company, I could have done it, and then it would have been done. Of course, a lot of the fans would have really hated it, just like they did the Phantom Menace and everything, but at least the whole story would have been told.”"
For those of you “fans” complaining about the current regime under Kathleen Kennedy, you only have yourselves to blame for running George Lucas into exile on Dagobah.
It’s funny how many of people begging George Lucas to come back, are the ones that ran him out. Ironic, isn’t it?
I say silly things sometimes. My bad. George Lucas is not coming back, and we can thank many of you bullies for his departure.
