George Lucas Was Working On A New 'Star Wars' Trilogy Before Disney Purchased Lucasfilm


From Business Insider

When Disney purchased Lucasfilm for $4 billion last fall, one of the most exciting bits of news was that we would be getting a new "Star Wars" trilogy.

And fans were even more excited about getting episodes VII, VIII, and IX because George Lucas wouldn't be behind the new movies.

Instead, his title on the new projects is a vague "creative consultant" role.

However, it turns out we may very well be seeing Lucas' visions (in some form) for the trilogy on the big screen.

A new Bloomberg BusinessWeek article reveals Lucas was working on treatments for new films before inking a deal with Disney in October.

Basically, Lucas laid the foundation for the future "Star Wars" films out for Disney before any negotiations.

Prior to Iger and Lucas discussing the Disney deal, Lucas already had talks with Kathleen Kennedy to head Lucasfilm, "The Empire Strikes Back" screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan was called upon as a consultant, and preliminary talks with the original cast to appear in the future films took place.

Yes, it's looking more and more likely that all of those rumors about the original cast of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford joining the new trilogy is indeed true.

Lucas let a little bit slip in his interview:

“We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison—or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation," said Lucas. "So I called them to say, ‘Look, this is what’s going on.’ … Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them.”
