In a recent interview with George Lucas, it was revealed that the iconic film maker and creator of the “Star Wars” movies had originally planned to make “Star Wars: Episode 7” before he sold his company Lucasfilm to Disney for $4 billion back in 2012.

When the director handed over his franchise, he also gave the studio his plotline for the film. But as it turns out, Disney and J.J. Abrams didn’t use any of the 70-year old’s ideas for the new installment.

“The ones that I sold to Disney, they came up to the decision that they didn’t really want to do those. So they made up their own. So it’s not the ones that I originally wrote [on screen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens],” he told Cinemablend.

That was the catchphrase of the Topps trading card company, which in addition to baseball players and comic book characters put out a series of collectible cards featuring scenes and characters from around the galaxy for the original 1977 Star Wars movie.

There were five rounds of Topps cards for that movie, each one designated by a different color, with red and blue leading the line-up. Right now, Abrams and Kennedy have mocked up three from the red series, and five from the blue series.
