According to reports after Lucas films and star wars was sold to disney, George Lucas also sold his three new story outlines he made for the new sequel trilogy, which was said to be way different than the one we're getting now in theaters thanks to Disney. Anyways, Disney and Bob Eiger bought the three scripts from George Lucas, BUT they did so with the understanding that Disney was under no legal obligation to use said scripts for any future star wars movies. It was also reported that Bob Eiger even tried to get George to sign a contract that would forbid him from ever speaking bad about any of the new Disney Star Wars movies publicly. George didn't sign the contract, as he felt it was unnecessary seeing as how he was under the assumption that Disney was going to use his new scripts after they took over the franchise.
And thus far it seems, none of the new scripts that George gave to Disney are being used at all by Disney. In fact, they practically threw that in the trash and did their own thing, so Lucas feels betrayed by Disney. What are your thoughts on this? Who's in the wrong here? George for naively thinking that Disney was going to use his new scripts even though they weren't contractually obligated to? Or Disney for manipulating poor George Lucas and trying to shut him up? Please discuss.
As for me personally, I feel guilty about everything I said about George Lucas. Don't get me wrong, i stand by what I said about the prequels in the past, and i stand by not liking the changes he kept making to the original trilogy. However, I do think when I originally celebrated on hubpages forum that Lucas would be gone that was uncalled for. Yes, Lucas did a terrible job on the prequels, but he deserved far more respect.
And to be honest, the heart of Star Wars is gone without Lucas involvement in it, as I can say I was a 100 percent wrong for liking the decision for Disney to run Star Wars, as I predict "Rise of Skywalker" is going to under perform. No, I'm not saying it's going flop, but it won't make a billion dollars, nor make as much money as disney wants. Book it.

The story being told in 'Star Wars' is a classic one. Every few hundred years, the story is retold because we have a tendency to do the same things over and over again. Power corrupts, and when you're in charge, you start doing things that you think are right, but they're actually not. --George...
