With STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER now behind us, the STAR WARS Sequel Trilogy is full, however many people are still questioning what George Lucas’ unique plans for the Skywalker Saga had been before he bought the franchise to Disney. We’ve heard bits and items of Lucas’ plans through the years, however an excerpt from “The Star Wars Archives: 1999-2005,” a lately launched book that covers the making of the Prequel Trilogy, has dropped just a few additional particulars.
One main aspect revealed by George Lucas within the book is that Darth Maul (Ray Park) would have returned as the primary villain of the trilogy alongside Darth Talon, a Sith Lord who first appeared within the Star Wars: Legacy comedian series. Maul would have skilled Talon as his apprentice, together with her taking over the Darth Vader position whereas Maul would ultimately turn into “the godfather of crime” because the Empire crumbles. Maul wound up having one thing of an identical arc as seen in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY, however because it stands now, Maul met his final demise by the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Rebels.
Additionally, George Lucas said that the Sequel Trilogy would have put the deal with Leia (Carrie Fisher) as she tried to construct the New Republic, all whereas battling gangsters and former Imperials who had arrange their very own planets following the collapse of the Empire. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) can be tasked with rebuilding the Jedi Order from scratch and coaching a new technology of Jedi. “By the tip of the trilogy Luke would have rebuilt a lot of the Jedi,” Lucas stated, “and we might have the renewal of the New Republic, with Leia, Senator Organa, turning into the Supreme Chancellor in control of all the pieces. So she ended up being the Chosen One.” Author Paul Duncan said on Twitter that these concepts had been what George Lucas was creating in 2012 (before Disney acquired Lucasfilm), which is why they appear somewhat distinct than the outlines he wound up presenting to Disney once they purchased the franchise.
