George Lucas Wanted Midi-Chlorians In His Scrapped 'Star Wars' Trilogy

James Cameron's Stories of Science Fiction  AMC

With production starting this summer on Star Wars 9, this new sequel trilogy will come to a close, but there are still fans who will wonder what might have happened if George Lucas hadn't sold his LucasFilm company to Disney. But an eagle-eyed Twitter user, Livio Ramdondelli, has spotted real clues in the companion book for the AMC TV show James Cameron's Story Of Science Fiction. When Disney acquired Lucasfilm with the intention of making a lot more Star Wars movies, Lucas opted out of having creative control over the films and chose to rather instead just take the many billions and not do much.

"If I'd held onto the company I could have done it, and then it would have been done".

However, I do feel like we did miss out on a large part of the universe that is still sitting in Lucas' head and getting to explore larger parts of Star Wars lore might have been a better use of the episodic films with other standalone films filling in the narrative gaps the way Rogue One and Solo have.

Now, to rile up those nasty, close-minded idiots, Stephen Colbert has "partnered with Lucasfilm" to remix a unique, brand-new Star Wars trailer for Episode IX, created to rile these trolls who think the franchise exists only for them.

"[The next three "Star Wars" films] were going to get into a microbiotic world", he told Cameron. But there's this world of creatures that operate different than we do. And the Whills are the ones that actually control the universe. "The feed off the force". Direct mentions of the “Whills” and the “Shamans of the Whills” would appear in novels and Star Wars encyclopedias and was even in the original screenplay for 2005's Revenge of the Sith at one point.

While I admit I'm curious as to how Lucas planned to wrap up the storylines of the Original Trilogy characters, this idea of further explaining how the Force work sounds kind of bad. 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.

"Back in the day, I used to say ultimately what this means is we were just cars, vehicles, for the Whills to travel around in", continued Lucas.
