And if it's not been Lucas...............who has it been?
Going way, way back, it was always perceived that the whole saga, originally having the overall title of "The Journal Of The Whills" would be made up of three trilogies..."Star Wars" was almost a secondary title. The second trilogy was supposed to have had the subtitle "The Adventures Of Luke Skywalker."
So it's quite possible the outlines Lucas made for the third trilogy could be very old, going back to the 1970s.
