"Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens" will come out later this year and production is still ongoing. There are a lot of rumors going around about the film's plot especially now that George Lucas mentioned something that may or may not excite eager fans.

During an interview with Nick Romano of Cinema Blend, Lucas was asked if he could talk about some of the ideas he sold to Disney a few years ago.

"The ones I sold to Disney, they came up to the decision that they didn't really want to do those," he explained. "So they made up their own. So it's not the ones that I originally wrote."

Lucas, who also served as a creative consultant for "Star Wars 7," didn't tell Romano what those original ideas were. However, Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker, shared back in 1983 that Lucas approached him to talk about an Obi-wan character in what seemed to be a potential passing the torch storyline, though Lucas has never confirmed it, according to The Verge

His statement follows his previous interview with USA Today, where he shared that prior to selling "Star Wars" and Lucasfilm to Disney, he contemplated going ahead with "Episode VII," which might have ended up coming out around May this year. Given the possible 10-year-long project he would have had to commit to in order to make another trilogy, he decided to just go ahead and sell everything, including all his ideas for the trilogy.

Lucas may have let go of the franchise but he did tell USA Today that he is looking forward to watch the film.

"The only thing I really regret about 'Star Wars' is the fact I never got to see it. I never got to be blown out of my seat when the ship came over the screen," he admitted. "The next one, I'll be able to enjoy it like anybody else."

Fans are well aware of George Lucas's long history with "Star Wars." The original creator of the epic space opera franchise, Lucas also directed several of the films before he decided to sell the franchise and his company Lucasfilm to Disney in October 2012. During the deal, Lucas also sold some of his ideas for a "Star Wars" trilogy, but now it seems none of them will be appearing onscreen.

It remains to be seen what the father of "Star Wars," will have to say about Director J.J. Abrams' take on the franchise when "Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens" comes out in theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.
