Thanks to a new book written by Lucasfilm Star Wars fact extraordinaire Pablo Hidalgo, we have a lot of interesting new information about the galaxy far, far away. And it turns out George Lucas’s original plans for a sequel trilogy bore some interesting resemblances to what actually happened.
Star Wars fans are still getting their heads around the game-changing choices Rian Johnson made for the franchise in The Last Jedi. However, it seems as though George Lucas would have made similarly massive decisions if he’d made the sequel trilogy. He just would have waited a bit longer.
We all can’t be as lucky as Jim Lee, apparently — who, aside from being a famous and extremely talented comics artist, also got Mark Hamill to do his finest Joker bit for Lee’s voicemail inbox. It’s amazing.
