There are many things that rile up Star Wars fans about George Lucas' prequels, but perhaps the intense criticism can be summed up in five syllables: midi-chlorians. Speaking with James Cameron as part of a companion book for the AMC series James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction, George Lucas offered up some details on where he meant to take the Star Wars saga next.
It's well known that George Lucas, has he not sold his company to Disney, had plans for more Star Wars stories.
Star Wars fans have had a lot to celebrate recently: between May the Fourth and the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, this month has been jam-packed with Force energy.
"If I'd held onto the company I could have done it, and then it would have been done". But there's this world of creatures that operate different than we do. 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. One user, who said he had a YouTube channel and faced harassment, told Boyega to "stop crying and playing the victim". They feed off the Force.

The United Nations fears that a battle in Hodeidah could be devastating for the estimated 600,000 people still living in the city. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday called on all parties "to honour their commitments to work with the UN".
Haters gonna hate, but first Star Wars actor John Boyega's gonna put them in their place.
While I admit I'm curious as to how Lucas planned to wrap up the storylines of the Original Trilogy characters, this idea of further explaining how the Force work sounds kind of bad.
So not only was Luke supposed to die at very end of the Skywalker saga, but he was going to train Leia to be a Jedi.
Lucas' vision of what he wanted to do with Star Wars will never make it to the big screen the way he wanted to-although there may be more instances of certain aspects trickling in there. And the conduit is the midi-chlorians. In James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction (which is viewable on Google Books), Lucas compared the midi-chlorians to fuel that helped run a auto (aka humans and other creatures in the galaxy), which Cameron argued was Lucas trying to insert some science into a "creation myth". "Even if you paid for a ticket!" What his quotes do show is just how much was-and still remains-possible in the Star Wars universe.
