Disney gave George Lucas more than $4 billion for LucasFilm and the rights to Star Wars, but the last thing it was going to do was give Lucas' ideas the time of day. In an interview with Cinema Blend Lucas said he originally planned to make Star Wars Episode VII himself. When he sold his production company to Disney he also gave them his ideas for the seventh film, to which Disney said:

"The [ideas] that I sold to Disney, they came up to the decision that they didn't really want to do those," Lucas said. "So they made up their own. So it's not the ones that I originally wrote [on screen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens]."

Bravo, Disney. You did what should have been done a long time ago in this very galaxy and shut George Lucas the fuck down. The Internet imagined what The Force Awakens trailer would have looked like with Lucas at the helm, and it was too real to even laugh at.
