John Boyega slams 'Star Wars' trolls after co-star left Instagram due to nasty comments

John Boyega has a message for online trolls harassing his co-stars

George Lucas has admitted that Star Wars fans would have likely hated his Sequel Trilogy.

Where Lucas' story would have gone has thus far been kept pretty much under wraps.

A Twitter user posted info from James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction series on AMC revealing what George Lucas originally intended.

The British actor, who plays Flinn in the franchise's new trilogy, has had enough of supposed fans criticising new characters from the last film, Star Wars:The Last Jedi, so he let them have it on Twitter. "There's this world of creatures that operate differently than we do". I call them the Whills. "The feed off the force". I've got to say that it's probably a good thing the films didn't get made then because based on fan hatred for The Phantom Menace's midichlorians, which tried to provide a scientific explanation for The Force, it appears people don't want to know the inner working of the Force and just want to see the Jedi do insane things. Disney eventually went in another direction with Star Wars: The Force Awakens and scrapped Lucas' treatments. Ron Howard, for instance, told the Kermode & Mayo Film Review Programme the other week that Lucas was on the set of Solo one day, and helped Howard get a small detail about Han Solo right. This was his design for the conclusion of the Star Wars saga that he began in 1977, and that he returned to for the prequel trilogy starting with 1999's The Phantom Menace.

Illustrator Livio Ramondelli shared a tweet with insights from Lucas' vision for Star Wars episodes 7, 8 and 9.

He says he could have made the films had he kept onto the company.

John Boyega and Mark Hamill aren't just forces for good in the Star Wars universe, you know. "Even if you paid for a ticket!" the 26-year-old tweeted. The Journal of the Whills, a record of all events that transpired throughout the galaxy, was actually first used in George Lucas' earliest drafts of the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope.
