He later stressed that the vast majority of fans supported the cast and thanked them for "putting yourselves in our shoes", adding: "You understand that there is a process, so much appreciated".
The two-time best director Oscar nominee confided his vision to none other than James Cameron, who interviewed Lucas for "Space", the second episode of his recent six-part AMC series "James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction". One of the people he spoke with was George Lucas who discussed at length about the publics fascination with the science fiction genre and how it led to the success of Star Wars.
The British actor, who plays Flinn in the franchise's new trilogy, has had enough of supposed fans criticising new characters from the last film, Star Wars:The Last Jedi, so he let them have it on Twitter. If I held onto the company, I could have done it, and then it would have been done.
Most recently, the idea would make an appearance in 2016s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story where two characters from that film were part of the Guardians of the Whills, protectors of the Temple of Kyber and its pilgrims on the planet Jeddha.
"The next three Star Wars films were going to get into a micro biotic world".
He continued: "But there's this world of creatures that operate differently than we do". One user, who said he had a YouTube channel and faced harassment, told Boyega to "stop crying and playing the victim".More news: Mohamed Salah shrugs off injury to join Egypt training

So, George Lucas wanted to explore the role of the creatures called Whills and how they feed off the Force and control it.
These games are sure to please even the most discerning Star Wars fans. J.J. Abrams has agreed to direct Star Wars 9, which is likely a big reason this petition was started in the first place.
Would you have liked to have seen Lucas' sequel trilogy? The midi-chlorians are the ones that communicate with the Whills.
And Lucas may be right in how fans would receive his larger focus on midi-chlorians, especially considering how some fans have reacted to what has appeared in the new movies.
Taking advantage of the uptake in traffic on his page, Boyega took the opportunity to let his fans know he's now filming another instalment, which is sure to excite the lot of you.
