Disney didn't want any of George Lucas' ideas for the new Star Wars movie! As surprising as it sounds, that's what the creator and director of the multi-billion dollar Star Wars film franchise recently revealed.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens will not include any of the ideas put forward by Lucas for the new trilogy. "The ones that I sold to Disney, they came up to the decision that they didn't really want to do those," he told Cinema Blend during a recent interview. "So they made up their own. So it's not the ones that I originally wrote." (via ComicBookResources)
Earlier this month, Lucas revealed that he had started developing a new Star Wars trilogy and intended to finish Episode 7 for release in May 2015 post which he would sell Lucasfilm to Disney.
But Disney came along in 2012 with a $4.06bn (£3bn) and its own plan. "It's better for me to get out at the beginning of a new thing and I can just remove myself," the filmmaker - who also realised a new trilogy would require at least a 10-year commitment - stated.
Lucas, however, didn't say what his ideas for the film were. Directed by JJ Abrams, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is slated for release on 18 December, 2015.
