"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" wasn't exactly how Abrams and the rest of the folks that factored in the awakening of the space opera franchise always pictured it. Yesterday, Latin One reported about how Hayden Christensen's Anakin was supposed to appear in the film. As it turns out, it is just one of the things that did not make it to the production floor.

In the book "The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens," which will be sold on Amazon starting Jan. 2, tons of secrets were revealed about the outrageous and wicked ideas during the development and production of the blockbuster film, which has already broke and set new records as it enters its third week in the theaters.

The fun starts with Rey and Finn, who were at one point referred to as Kira and Sam respectively, as per Tech Insider. Screenwriter Michael Arndt described Daisy Ridley's character as a "loner, hothead, gear-head, badass," while John Boyega's character was initially written in to be saved by an alien tribe from Jakku.

Poe, the mighty pilot that helped in the obliteration of the Starkiller Base, was almost depicted as a Jedi turned bounty hunter. On the other hand, Supreme Leader Snoke, the terrifying holographic master of evil, pulling the strings of the horrendous things happening in the galaxy, was almost portrayed as a woman.

More on the rejected "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" monikers and designations, Kylo Ren was dubbed as the Jedi Killer and was then red-skinned and donned a monocle. As per io9, he did not look like what he does now, until the concept artists were told to "Boba up" the design, in reference to the "Star Wars" original fan-favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett.

Speaking of Kylo Ren, it turns out that the Darth Vader fanatic was supposed to have a droid cohort himself, but certainly not as cute as Poe's BB-8 or R2-D2. This is supposed to be what Kylo Ren's tech companion looks like. "You can't really see anything obvious that it can do other than observe you. But it's quite an ominous-looking thing," as stated in the book.

"The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens" also revealed that fans were once so close to finally seeing what was inside Darth Vader's crib in the film. This idea has already been broached since the original trilogy, but it looks like it is not yet time to see where the most iconic villain of all time stayed when on a break from watching planets burn.

Lastly, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" was not supposed to be premised with BB-8 possessing an important piece of information, "A New Hope" style. Originally, it was pitched that the precious portion of the map of the galaxy needed to locate Luke Skywalker, hidden away in a Death Star underwater.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" premiered last Dec. 18, and is still showing in theaters worldwide.
