On October 30, 2012, George Lucas relinquished his hold over the Star Wars franchise when Disney acquired Lucasfilm for a cool $4.05 billion.

While he's only hinted so far about how he would have handled the next trilogy of films, some of his plans appear to have been revealed in a companion book to James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction series on AMC.

You have to admit that it's pretty funny that he would have done something he knew fans would have hated. And who can blame him? Star Wars fans suck.
