The sequel to the Disney trilogy chose to have Luke Skywalker spend the first film in exile before sacrificing himself in the second. JJ Abrams and Rian Johnson took these ideas from Lucas’s original treatments, which would have involved the titular hero finding Luke on an island.

Disney’s sequel trilogy contained many character redemption arcs, something Lucas was known for with his Star Wars films. Finn, Ben, Han, and Luke started out at their lowest point, but ended up redeeming themselves and playing a pivotal role in the story.

2 Leia flying through space

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Leia’s use of the Force to fly through space may have been Johnson’s idea, but it seems like something Lucas would have been willing to try in his sequel trilogy. After all, the Star Wars In the prequels, Force users survived falling through air traffic, fighting next to lava without dying from the heat, and even being cut in half and falling down a shaft.

One of Abrams’ ideas that feels purely Lucas is Rey and Kylo Ren’s Force Dyad.
