For the love of Christ... Is there any origanality left in the world? I've said this before but I'll say it again. We dont need to know eveything about charictors such as Indy or those in Star Wars. Too much comercialization kills the magick. The magick of the origanal Star Wars series is almost lost for me and guess why...

I highly doubt that another Star Wars movie will be made. George Lucas said that they'll be no more, and he's usually right with what he says. If there ever is another Star Wars film, it will probably take place in the Expanded Universe, after Return of the Jedi.

IESB has been told fans can expect the new trilogy after the entire saga is released in 3D which is expected to be complete around 2015 or 2016.
Uncle George's modus operandi has not changed, the plan is that he will self finance the new trilogy after he rakes in an expected $500 - $750 million dollars with the re-release of the entire Star Wars Saga in 3D and on Blu-Ray.
The ideal plan, according to our spy at Skywalker Ranch, is to be able to release a new Star Wars film within 24 months after the release of the last re-re-release (is that right?) of Return of the Jedi 3D.
Too early for story details but one thing that our source is certain about, they will not be prequels but instead sequels. It's not for certain if they will be the long awaited Episodes 7, 8 and 9 but could instead be Episodes 10, 11 and 12 or possibly even further out in the Star Wars timeline. And by giving space in the timeline, possibly even as far as 100 years or 1,000 years in the Star Wars universe future, Lucas avoids having to make these stories "fit in" with what the previous stories have told.
According to our sources, the most likely scenario for the films is that they will exist in the same universe but will not have anything to do with the Skywalker Clan. That story has been told, that starship has sailed.
More good news, Carrie Fisher promises to stay clean this time!

If you run into Mister Lucas, Please tell him how sorry I am that this ever happened, that I’ve admitted to its occurring & I promise not to do it again should he decide to do another sequel starring a geriatric Mr & Mrs. Han Solo, on the shopping planet- having pedicures & trying on nightgowns from deep space.

From the bits of it I've seen, I thought it was scary enough in 2D!

Been waiting for Star Wars 7, 8 & 9 for a long time. Not sure I trust uncle George to do them the way I'd like to see them, though.

I think if Geaorge Lucas made another SW film it would either be an episode 7 or something inbetween the trilogy's if you like.

Since they are bringing out SW in 3-D which is the norm nowadays with most films, it may happen afterwards.

To be honest after seeing Episodes 1-3 and how disappointed I was with them I would hope that the next one they do would be better.

Once upon a time I really wanted to see 7, 8, and 9 and have them be set a generation after 6, like the prequels were to the sequels. But boy, if we're already afraid of Indy not being made, 2015 seems too long for Mr. Ford.

However, I think abandoning established characters would be a bad idea. I don't want to see a new SW trilogy that does not acknowledge the stories from the originals, then what is the point? Why not include the Solo kids, or Ben Skywalker? Or if they don't go that route, at least mention the Skywalkers and Solos as celebrities the way the EU does.

In the end, I'm kind of hoping this doesn't happen. I'll have to search my feelings about an entirely new trilogy with no ties to the previous 2 other than existing in the same space.

on that note i just want to say the clone wars tv series SUCKS!!!!! there is nothing accurate about the storyline in comparison to the rest of the star wars universe. for example the Mandalorians (death watch?? i never understood... ) in clone wars...WHAT?!!?!? to quote Commando Scorch from Republic Commando (the game): "Its discraceful..." sure the clones in the tv series are awesome looking and kick ass but the rest of the series is just terrible.

That pic of Vader with the bounty hunters looks so badass, while the one of Vader and the tyke is oddly touching, in some creepy way.

Saying that reminded me of an image of Vader from one of the early comics. I think it was a full page picture of him standing in a flowery bower, or something. I should have it on disc.

I don't know why, but...



I don't suppose this would be a plot element of Star Wars VII.

I have been a huge fan of the SW franchise since seeing ANH in the theatre as a little kid back in '77. I also liked the 3 Prequels (unlike a lot of fans), and have followed the Expanded Universe (EU) to some extent as well.

That being said, I have absolutely 0 interest in seeing a 7th SW film with the aging cast from the original movies (Luke, Han, Leia, etc.); something like this would be more like a bad joke, no matter how serious the film was. The furthur adventures of these characters (post-ROTJ) have been more than covered in the numerous books, comics, etc. that have come out in the past 25+ years, and this time period should be left alone in any future movies/TV shows.

Side-note: About a year ago, I saw a very entertaining B-grade horror movie called Sorority Row (2009), about a group of Sorority sisters who do something terrible, then are haunted by it a year later (kind of like I know what you did last summer, but with a different twist). Anyway, Carrie Fisher played the Den Mother of the Sorority, and just seeing her in the film was hilarious, despite the fact that the movie was not meant to be funny.

A movie with the older cast is something I've been looking forward since it was rumoured in the 1980s. It always felt it was going to be a long way off, but not this long though.

I have that movie, and yes Carrie hasn't worn well. It's hard to reconcile with the metal bikini of '83!

She'd be the perfect villain though, an intergalactic Mommie Dearest.

No more stupid ewoks!



You could explain her conversion to the darkside as the effect of an Endor strain of tick, no doubt from her romance with Wicket.

The Force Unleashed movies.... Sam Witiker (if that is what his last name is) is the only person who could play Starkiller, considering the characters looks and voice are all Sam's anyhow...... imagine all of the force special effects

George Lucas: "I'm retired."




The TMZ comment should be quoted for posterity, especially for the final sentiment!

Quote:
Stick a fork in Jar Jar Binks ... 'cause the "Star Wars" franchise is done ... FOREVER ... so says intergallactic space god George Lucas.

The Jedi Master's master was leaving Toast in L.A. yesterday when we asked when he was finally going to release the long-awaited 7th, 8th and 9th installments of the greatest space saga of all time.

But judging from Lucas' answer ... it looks like the series will remain frozen in carbonite for the rest of time.

Hopefully, that goes for the Indiana Jones series too ... because NO ONE SURVIVES A NUCLEAR BLAST BY HIDING IN A REFRIGERATOR!!
