John Boyega tells Star Wars fans to stop harassing cast

Star Wars fans will now be thrilled to know that the veil has been partially lifted on Lucas' ideas for the episodes. In those excerpted quotes, Lucas discussed his plans for the sequel Star Wars trilogy he wanted to make before selling Lucasfilm to Disney (who then abandoned his pitch for its own story).

In another tweet. Boyega wrote, "To the majority of Star Wars fans, thank you for supporting and putting yourselves in our shoes". But for now, fans can at least start theorizing with this little peek into the Star Wars that could have been. Abrams and and Co. chose to take the story of the Star Wars sequels in a very different direction than Lucas had intended. At one point, that was even the working title for Star Wars (you can find out more about that over here). So in George Lucas' mind, the stories of Star Wars have always been tales relayed to us by these creatures called the Whills. While most of us like starting projects, it takes a lot more effort to finish them off, but that feeling is instantly more rewarding. 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. They are essentially a bunch of tiny creatures who happen to have control over the entire universe by tapping into the largest force there is, so large it's literally called THE force; what a bizzare contradiction. He's attempting to explain the origins and goal of the sci-fi world he created by giving the universe its own creation myth. Giving the events trajectory of the Star Wars saga over to the Whills as something they control through midi-chlorians and the Force doesn't seem to add much significance to the proceedings. Let us know down in the comments. I never got to tell people about it.
