"To the majority of Star Wars fans thank you for supporting and putting yourselves in our shoes".
James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction-a six-part series that aired on AMC in late April and May-explored different factions of science fiction and pop culture staples as Cameron interviewed numerous men who created those films. Some people make a case for Yoda being a Whill, though the Star Wars Wikia reports Lucas has denied it.
Hardcore Star Wars fans may be familiar with the director's concept of the Whills, immortal beings that were kind of an early version of the Force itself.
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.
While we may have recently got an episode VII and VIII in the current episodic trilogy that is closing out with J.J. Abrams' Episode IX in December next year, these stories actually had nothing to do with George Lucas. But there's this world of creatures that operate differently than we do. One user, who said he had a YouTube channel and faced harassment, told Boyega to "stop crying and playing the victim".
Star Wars fans will now be thrilled to know that the veil has been partially lifted on Lucas' ideas for the episodes. "The feed off the force". LucasFilm has already brought back The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson to develop a brand new trilogy focusing on new characters that aren't connected to the Skywalker saga at all, but if that isn't successful, it will be interesting to see if LucasFilm ever circles back to its original creator.
For those who don't know, the idea of the Whills is something George Lucas had always meant to be a larger part of Star Wars. 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. How well that would have played on screen is another matter and something I guess we'll never know.
