I'm full of movie news and rumors today! So this Lucas cut is something that's been rumored for a while now, but has been denied by Kathleen Kennedy and was looking like even if it did exist, the world will never see it. I had little hope of ever seeing it.\n\nWell the rumor mill on this is firing back up and it's starting to look like we might yet see it! Rumor has it that George Lucas put a version of this film together and it made it so far as to have been shown to test audiences (along with other versions) before the theatrical release. Supposedly Lucas' cut was a hit with the test audiences and scored an 88, compared to what we got which scored in the low 60s...\n\nThere's something going on at Lucasfilm where they're divided between the old guard and the new, under Kennedy's leadership. Agenda over story and the destruction of certain characters and the canon is not sitting well with the ones who still actually care. Again, rumor, it's being said that she had final say on all things Star Wars and buried Lucas' version, intending for it to never see the light of day. Supposedly there was a big meeting of unhappy shareholders recently, the money people, and Lucas' cut was asked about. Ellegedly it surfaced, a handful screened it and are now furious with Kennedy. Apparently it's very good and fixes a lot of the stupidity that was The Last Jedi. \n\nHer decisions cost the company billions and I think that amount of money is going to trump her forced wokedness. I know there's going to be more to this story. Destroying a multi billion dollar ip and losing the comany billions in the process is going to have to have big repercussions. I don't think she's going to be the head of Lucasfilm much longer. Best case scenario they let her contract run out. They might shitcan her tho... they might!
