The Star Wars franchise's uber polarizing sequel trilogy left a bad taste in a lot of fans' mouths and if they had their way with things, they'd wish for all three films — The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker to be deleted from continuity.

Now, a new rumor suggests that it could all come true as Disney is reportedly erasing the entire sequel trilogy from existence to make way for a reboot. According to a report from Express, the House of Mouse is currently toying with the idea of remaking the divisive trilogy and turn them into a series of shows exclusive to Disney+. YouTuber Doomcock claims that if plans push through, the "new" sequel trilogy will feature a reunion between Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Organa.

He reveals: "If Disney were to remake the Sequel Trilogy, the Sequel Trilogy would be remade exclusively for Disney Plus, according to my source, with a story being spread out between eight to ten mini-series, and three seasons of full series. My source claims that, while they will only change a little of The Force Awakens to use the Leia footage, he says they will most likely add one major thing. A reunion of Han, Luke, and Leia."

Doomcock added: "My sources claim that footage exists of Han, Luke, and Leia together. This footage was shot on green screen, and it is a ten-minute scene. But the idea that Abrams would have written and recorded this scene is intriguing. Was it something that was ultimately cut from The Force Awakens? Or was it some kind of flashback that was filmed for The Last Jedi or The Rise of Skywalker? If this is true, it is a massive bombshell."

Personally, I don't know how to feel about this one. It's like Disney is accepting defeat and acknowledging the fact that they actually mishandled the entire sequel trilogy. I guess mad props to them for trying to correct things. Now, if this rumored project does happen, I think I'll be cool with it as long as they bring back the original actors from the last three films of the Skywalker saga.

The entire Skywalker saga is available for streaming on Disney+.
