The Star Wars Sequel Trilogy concluded this year with The Rise of Skywalker. This was the only trilogy in the nine-part series that didn’t have George Lucas’ involvement. Here are 4 ways we could one day get his version of these films.
The Star Wars saga is now complete as all nine episodes have been released.
Opinions vary widely on all the films, with some fans loving some episodes while others hate them. It is a true balance. Episodes VII-IX are the only episodes that weren’t written at least in part by George Lucas.
He had no say in the story, and in fact, his story wasn’t used at all. It was a surprising move on Disney’s part to not use any ideas from Lucas’ original draft since he had an outline ready at the time he sold the rights.
This creates all kinds of conundrums. Fans could, rightly so, not include the Sequel Trilogy as canon since it wasn’t created by Lucas. For all intents and purposes, in their minds, the saga ends with Return of the Jedi. This movement hasn’t picked up a lot of steam but it could in the future.
If it does, Disney could feel pressured to release some version of Lucas’ Sequel Trilogy. It would never be a series of feature films but there are other ways we could someday see the creators version of the final trilogy of Star Wars. Here are four possibilities.
