In the book, which is published by Taschen, it is revealed Lucas actually wanted The Phantom Menace villain Darth Maul (Ray Park) as the main foe for the Rebels in subsequent films.
Darth Maul would have been working in tandem with Darth Talon – who fans of the franchise may recognise from the Star Wars comic books.
On top of the terror Darth Maul and Darth Talon were going to wreak upon the galaxy, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) was due to rebuild the Jedi order, while his sister Leia (Carrie Fisher) continued her humanitarian efforts.
Author of the book, Paul Duncan, shared some insight into Lucas’ plans on Twitter.
