Star Wars SHOCK: George Lucas ‘Fans would have HATED my sequel trilogy’

14 June 2018

For some fans who did not take too well to the director's prequel trilogy (which, for the record, I actually enjoyed, even though they weren't perfect), that is probably a huge sigh of relief, but for many it leaves them wondering just what could've been, especially given the controversies around Rian Johnson's Episode VIII, which many fans did not like.

The actor, who plays Finn, tweeted: "If you don't like Star Wars or the characters, understand that there are decisions makers [sic] and harassing the actors/actresses will do nothing".

Before George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to The Walt Disney Company for billions of dollars, the creator of Star Wars was slowly developing what would have been a sequel trilogy to follow the events of Return of the Jedi.

The London-born actor, who appeared in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, told followers: "You're not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude". It's a fascinating conversation worth reading, even if you would hate what Lucas had in mind.

Star Wars fans will now be thrilled to know that the veil has been partially lifted on Lucas' ideas for the episodes. Tran's co-star John Boyega was the latest to voice his thoughts on the state of harassment and fan entitlement in the entertainment industry.

He later stressed that the vast majority of fans supported the cast and thanked them for "putting yourselves in our shoes", adding: "You understand that there is a process, so much appreciated".

Boyega isn't the only one who has spoken out in defense of Tran. "People weren't nice about how I looked". "We like & dislike stuff but we do it with humor, love & respect". The post purge was spotted by the fan site Star Wars Facts, which claimed "months of harassment" was the reason behind Tran's social media shutdown.

But while some are celebrating this breakthrough, a horde of trolls in social media and internet forums have taken it upon themselves to abuse Tran for basically not being a white male - harassing her online and ultimately hounding her off social media.
