Oookay everybody. We all know that Michael Arndt is writing the script now. We have a whole thread discussing it. But the more interesting part is what happened BEFORE that. Here is what we know from various interviews and announcements. Lucas had given Disney 3 finished treatments for Episode VII - IX The Original plan was for The Emperor to not appear in TESB or ROTJ but only in Episode VII and to die in EP IX on Hadd Abbadon which is orbited by two death stars. The Sequel trilogy would have had Luke's Sister(not Leia) show up. Also, no Death Star II in ROTJ and Han Solo dies. But one of the good guys who's not from the Big 3 comes back in the ST. The writer of Lucas' biography saw treatments of 12 star wars movies(so if we assume that the OT is among these 12 we are one trilogy short) EP VII was at one point called Shadows of the Sith(a very good one for the first appearance of Palps) This raises a couple of questions. 1. Where is the other trilogy? Well it was probably intended to be a sequel. Why? Because the movies tell the story of the Skywalkers. With Anakin being born without a father to a non-Force sensitive woman, there is no point to make a prequel for TPM. Most likely it was merged with the ST. 2. Were the 3 treatments given to Disney the original ST treatments? Most likely not. With the way TESB and ROTJ played out practically the entire sequel trilogy became obsolete. 3. So what happend with the original idea? For me the most likely scenario is that the SST was rewritten with the ST cast. Instead of Ben passing on the torch for the grand children to fight some kind of post-Palpatine threat, Luke will pass the torch to Ben. 4. So which version of Episode VII was titled Shadows of the Sith? Most likely the second. I doubt Lucas was thinking of making acceptable tie-in games for Ep VII BEFORE Ep V even had a finished script. So we will have Sith. Or something related to them anyway. 5. Who's the good-guy who comes back? Well either Anakin gets resurrected or Lando. Really hope it is Lando. 6. Is the current script any different from Lucas'? I certainly hope it is. But with everyone aging a lot, and the EU appearing and making Star Wars much cooler than the PT in all likelihood a lot was added to the original treatments. 7. Will Han die? Since Harrison Ford really wanted Han to bite it in ROTJ I doubt the original plan changed much. But he is now among the biggest A list stars. He wouldn't be brought back to die in the first 10 minutes. He will have a lot to do in the movies. Anyway this is how I see it. I might be wrong in some of the cases. Perhaps all of them but seeing that these make the most sense logically, I highly doubt it. We of course cannot see the 6 old treatments that didn't get a movie(yet) but I hope you will all join me and help figure out most of what we are going to see two years from now.
