Podcast Stardust #179: George Lucas’s Vision of the Sequel Trilogy

by Podcast Stardust

George Lucas revealed his vision for the sequel trilogy and it diverges drastically from the last three episodes. Darth Maul plays a major role.

It is no secret that George Lucas had different plans for the sequel trilogy. However, the extent to which his plans differed from the product that Disney and Lucasfilm started releasing in 2015 have largely been unknown beyond the fact that Lucas was disappointed they didn’t use his story. Now, the story outline of Lucas’s vision have come to light. His story would have taken the saga in a very different direction. We discuss that and more on this edition of Podcast Stardust.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • George Lucas’s vision for the sequel trilogy,
  • How this would have changed the fate of Darth Maul,
  • The character of Darth Talon and her origins,
  • Luke and Leia’s roles in this alternate trilogy,
  • A release date for John Powell’s Solo: A Star Wars Story Deluxe Edition soundtrack release,
  • The new trailer for the LEGO Star Wars Life Day trailer,
  • The release of From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back,
  • A new excerpt from Star Wars: The High RepublicLight of the Jedi,
  • Characters from The Mandalorian in Disney Magic Kingdoms, and
  • The final HasLab Razor Crest update.
