    Maybe because I'm not exactly a fan of the franchise, but this at least sounds fun anf better than the rehash garbage Disney has churned out.

    Thoughts?

    The Whills were originally defined as a group of higher order beings who chronicled the history of the Star Wars galaxy. How he was going to tie them into this "microbiotic" world and define them as the ones who control the universe and "feed off the Force"...

    Well, midichlorians weren't regarded well by those who watched the Prequel Trilogy, to say the least.

    Say what you will about Lucas, the man has some creative ideas.

    I would say he is like Akira Toriyama. He just needs other people to reign him in.

    Execution.

    Anyone can pitch a good story or suggest one from the history books.

    Recent trends suggest otherwise.

    I don't mind a lot of Lucas's ideas. Even the midichlorians (probably not spelling that right) don't bother me like it bothers everyone else. He's just too much in love with the green-screen and isn't very good when it comes to directing his actors.

    Did the prquels have truly impressive sequences when the actors were not talking besides the Darth Maul fight?

    "Revenge of the Sith" had its moments. Also, I made a typo. Meant to say "Green Screen", not "Screen Screen".

    midichlorians are the absolute worst shit in SW


    a full movie trilogy about them would have been the worst trilogy of all time

    It'd be more accurate to say it was a necessary gamble that did not pay off in the eyes of the fans.

    I'll refer to Part 2 of "The Hermit's Journey" at the 11:20 mark:



    A ubiquitous Force generated by all life, yet how do you explain why such a small, small fraction of a galactic population of 100 quadrillion are Force-Sensitive, with most of that fraction being Jedi (the ratio is 10 trillion to one)? How do you have Anakin be an exception to the rules of the Jedi Order despite being "too old", and how do you have them convinced to allow Anakin to be trained despite it being against their wishes?

    You need more than a "he's strong with the Force" to make an entire council of Jedi Masters change their minds. As contentious as the midi-chlorians are, their conception was out of necessity: Anakin's unnaturally high midi-chlorian count was the physical evidence needed to push the Council to allow Anakin to be trained, despite their misgivings; the indicator that Anakin was the Chosen One of prophecy.

    But while all the above may be the case, fans hated it because the midi-chlorians "de-mystified" the Force, devalued its spiritual nature, and made it more "scientific".

    At the end of the day, however, it is not something that intrinsically changes the Force itself; they are just the physical conduit for a spiritual force.

    “Back in the day, I used to say ultimately what this means is we were just cars, vehicles for the Whills to travel around in….We’re vessels for them. And the conduit is the midichlorians. The midichlorians are the ones that communicate with the Whills. The Whills, in a general sense, they are the Force… All the way back to—with the Force and the Jedi and everything—the whole concept of how things happen was laid out completely from [the beginning] to the end. But I never got to finish. I never got to tell people about it.”

    But this would have directly affected the nature of the Force itself. The Force was defined as a energy field created by life; a spiritual, fundamental force of the Star Wars universe that permeates and surrounds everything - matter, space-time, life.

    Lucas' vision would have drastically reshaped what the Force, given he suggests the Whills are the Force (in a general sense). Perhaps his idea for the Sequel Trilogy villain was a Dark Side user who found a way to corrupt the Whills, tainting the Force to darkness forever, but we don't know.

    Seems to me that George's trilogy would have been more cosmic and spiritual and delved into the lore of the Force. And no dead Luke more importantly.

    Luke most certainly would've died. Because as Lucas says, "It's like poetry, it rhymes" and everyone- even before anyone knew a thing about "The Force Awakens", knew Luke would be the new Obi Wan.

    Now granted, I don't think he would've died in the 2nd movie of the trilogy. A large part of me wonders if this trilogy ended with Luke staring into the sunset as he faded away, if fans would've been warmer to the idea. I still think it was a masterful way to end the character, but maybe they should've held back until Episode 9.

    No disrespect to Carrie Fisher or anything, but the idea of her being the last of the old guard helping to carry the story is a lot less exciting than Han or Luke. Now, without her, they don't even have that...although we all know Luke is going to appear as a force ghost. I also suspect Harrison Ford will cameo in some capacity, maybe a dream sequence or a hallucination by Kylo Ren. Disney will have to come up with something after suffering a box office disappointment and an outright flop.

    But either way, Luke's days would've been numbered.
