    He might not know everything but, I am pretty sure he knows at least a little something. As he said " kind of a different story" .. He must know some of the differences. He wants to be surprised, though.

    IF the rumour is true that jj Wanted to include the "big 3" more & Lucas script focused more on the offspring/next generation then i am not unhappy, but IT Would be interesting IF they at some point published Lucas original script, Maybe as à comic like they did with the first draft of the first film...

    well the very old Hamill interview that is floating around gives us a sneak peak of Lucas' vision. Hamill said lucas "wanted him to hand down Excalibur" in an obi-wan style. Yet but the looks of it, JJ and Kasdan are making luke important for VII in the sense that Rey has to find him, and then he seems to have a much bigger impact in VIII

    IMO, JJ/Kasdan have made han more like obi-wan, and luke like yoda.

    Yeah , i read somewhere that Lucas intended Lukes role to be minor, having an obi Wan type role "passing the torch" to the next generation & that jj Wanted to give the fans one final adventure/goodbye with the beloved original Cast before the next generation takes over

    i don't know if you have been following all the spoilers and rumours, so i'll keep this cryptic, but that "last goodbye" stuff does not seem to be playing out in the leaks for at least 2 of the 3 OT characters.

    I have read all there is out there and yes IT seems like Harrison is the obi type Role & that he got his Will to let han sacrifice himself & that Luke Will not have an important roll until the next act & that makes me wonder: maybe Luke played out his role already in EP.7 in Lucas script? I think IT Would be really cool IF the "big 3" got the Main focus in one film each, so EP.7 focus on Han Solo, EP.8 focus on Luke & EP.9 focus on Leia

    i actually like that concept but i just doubt they would do that for leia. I get this feeling EP. 7 is going to confirm she is just very heavily involved in the politics and not that broader force story, hence the term "resistance" and not rebels. Resistance places Leia in a position on power, whereas before they were the rebellion aka."power-less"

    There is hardly Any rumours at all about Leia, so either is her role just à background role, or They wait to reveal her importance until the very end , so i hope My theory is right :) & maybe her force Also "awakens" after Luke comes out of hiding (probably EP.8) & that the last film Will be about the QUEEN & that the rebel alliance wins beacause she finaly uses the force as à Leader , wich would mirror what palpatine managed to do in EP.3 but as the good leader & what à surprise that would be, that IT is Leia & not Luke wh o saved the day in the end . Almost like when Aragorn is crowned king in lord of the rings/return of the King & after that there is really no more stories to tell ..... (Sorry for the capitalization of IT and other words, but i have autocorrect in swedish on My iPad so i get à lot of Weird suggestions When writing in english :D :)

    But apparently it was an ILM employee who pitched the idea of Rogue One. Are they throwing most of, if not all of Lucas's ideas out the window? We may not get what we thought in terms of the Anthology movies.

    Lucas would probably not want the new Jedi hero to be a girl at all. He would rather have the son of Luke or Leia be the new Jedi champion. It is good that Disney decide to completely discard Lucas altogether and make a white girl the main Jedi hero in the ST. We are living in the era of complete female empowerment and domination and the great emasculation and the decline of men. This world will be a much better place lead and controlled by strong and powerful women with weak men under them.

    I like you theories! But I'm still holding out for Liea to be suduced by the dark side and become an evil queen! That, for me, sets up a lot of cool things to happen in a galaxy far far away...

    We are living in an age where girls are empowered to be better than men and that men are in serious decline.

    i think the new idea is to have a transgendered Jedi :rolleyes:

    Rupaul's Pod Race! (sebulba)

    seriously though, i thought they discarded Lucas' idea of having kids star again, not anything to do with men over women, or gender politics. i get that Jedi are supposed to start young and all, but kid characters can be really challenging to get right; i think it was the right call to shoot a little older.
