As we soar down the calendar toward the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's opening in December, some fans still cling to thoughts of just what the last Star Wars installment, The Force Awakens, might have looked like in the hands of the sci-fi galaxy's creator, George Lucas. It's intriguing grist for the debate mill, of course, and unless we can discover a parallel dimension where the prequels were beloved and Lucas continued into the final trilogy, we will never know. But it's still fun as hell to speculate (this is speculative fiction, after all), and there is some evidence that Lucas might have abandoned the corporate juggernaut of major tentpole features and returned to his maverick days of independent filmmaking as seen in earlier works like THX-1138 and American Graffiti to resume the soap opera saga of the Force-sensitive Skywalker family.
YouTube cinephile Mr. Sunday Movies has compiled a provocative new video breakdown delving into the Lucas mythos and reveals some interesting history on what the mastermind had planned for the Star Wars franchise in the aftermath of Return of the Jedi and before selling the empire to Disney in 2012. Have a look and tell us if you'd be willing to watch a George Lucas-directed Star Wars episode in this lifetime.
