John Boyega has a message for online trolls harassing his co-stars John Boyega slams 'Star Wars' trolls after co-star left Instagram due to nasty comments

'To the majority of Star Wars fans thank you for supporting and putting yourselves in our shoes.

In the AMC TV special “James Camerons Story of Science Fiction”, the longtime director speaks with many experts in the field of science fiction from directors to writers to actual scientists. 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.

This is far from the first run-in with harassment and trolling the Star Wars fan community has undergone since the launch of the new trilogy with The Force Awakens back in 2015, which garnered the vocal ire of fans after Twitter-based critics called main character Rey a "Mary Sue". If I held onto the company, I could have done it, and then it would have been done. But there's this world of creatures that operate different than we do.

John Boyega has a message for online trolls harassing his co-stars

"I call them the Whills".

For some fans who did not take too well to the director's prequel trilogy (which, for the record, I actually enjoyed, even though they weren't perfect), that is probably a huge sigh of relief, but for many it leaves them wondering just what could've been, especially given the controversies around Rian Johnson's Episode VIII, which many fans did not like. "The feed off the force".

Star Wars fans will now be thrilled to know that the veil has been partially lifted on Lucas' ideas for the episodes. I've got to say that it's probably a good thing the films didn't get made then because based on fan hatred for The Phantom Menace's midichlorians, which tried to provide a scientific explanation for The Force, it appears people don't want to know the inner working of the Force and just want to see the Jedi do insane things. However, that does mean that we will never get to see exactly what the conclusion of Lucas' planned story would've been. The trilogy may have potentially included a Jedi temple that had Lucas' seal of approval, showed Leia Organa using the Force (which we ended up getting in The Last Jedi) and training with her brother Luke Skywalker, and Luke dying at the end of Episode IX. In James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction (which is viewable on Google Books), Lucas compared the midi-chlorians to fuel that helped run a vehicle (aka humans and other creatures in the galaxy), which Cameron argued was Lucas trying to insert some science into a "creation myth". It's a fascinating conversation worth reading, even if you would hate what Lucas had in mind.
