Star Trek: Discovery has gone through a bit of drama lately as the showrunners of the series,  Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts , were recently fired due to the abusive work conditions that they put their writing staff through.  Alex Kurtzman has since replaced them as the showrunner of the show and he just signed a new deal with CBS. A $25 million deal which will be part of a five-year plan to develop more Star Trek series for the network.

George Lucas Would Have Set Star Wars 7-9 in Microbiotic World

“Star Wars” creator George Lucas told James Cameron his unfulfilled vision for Episodes VII, VIII, and IX. “[The next three ‘Star Wars’ films] were going to get into a microbiotic world,” he told Cameron. “There’s this world of creatures that operate differently than we do. I call them the Whills. And the Whills are the ones who actually control the universe. They feed off the Force.”

Elsewhere in the conversation, Lucas admitted, “Everybody hated it in ‘Phantom Menace’ [when] we started talking about midi-chlorians.” In terms of his storytelling, Lucas regarded individuals as “vehicles for the Whills to travel around in…And the conduit is the midi-chlorians. The midi-chlorians are the ones that communicate with the Whills. The Whills, in a general sense, they are the Force.”
