Disney wants nothing to do with George Lucas's ideas for Star Wars 7



From Esquire, George Lucas has revealed that none of his ideas for future Star Wars episodes will be used by Disney.

Prior to Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm in 2012, the filmmaker had penned treatments for Episode VII with the intention of directing the movie himself.

However, Lucas revealed to CinemaBlend that JJ Abrams's Star Wars: The Force Awakens will depart from his ideas entirely.

"The ones that I sold to Disney, they came up to the decision that they didn't really want to do those," Lucas said. "So they made up their own. So it's not the ones that I originally wrote [on screen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens]."

Lucas is returning to movies with Strange Magic, an animated film he produced and conceived the storyline for. It will open in US cinemas on January 23.
