Here's What George Lucas's Episode VII Would Have Looked Like (VIDEO)
Even though Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens made more money than any movie ever (in North America, at least), not everyone loved it. Most fans and critics seemed to enjoy the film quite a bit, but there were others who found it derivative of the first Star Wars film; and they didn't like how the movie negated decades of canon Star Wars lore from the Expanded Universe. These fans wondered what the Episode VII version that George Lucas wanted would have looked like, and now they can get a better idea of what he wanted thanks to a new video.

Mr. Sunday Movies has put together an extensive video detailing the version of Episode VII Lucas had envisioned prior to Disney's takeover. And actually, some of it doesn't sound that different. For example, Luke Skywalker was going to be an older, Obi-Wan type of character - which he appears to set up to be at the end of TFA. But the rest of Lucas's ideas, which he transferred over to Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm when he sold the property to Disney, were discarded. Lucas wanted the main focus of the new trilogy to be on young characters, but Disney was worried about comparisons to the loathed kid-centric prequels and ditched his idea. Lucas also didn't want to do a retro, retread of his original trilogy - which is exactly what Disney wanted.

So check out the video below, and see if you can piece together what George Lucas's Episode VII would have looked like.
