I know he says he will not make any more films and yes I know the new TV series is now in production but I still feel that there will be more films.

He will go back through the old ones and get them rendered in 3D, fix in any other effects glitches and otherwise continue to polish his most memorable addition to the movie industry. He should delete Jar Jar Binks, possibly going as far as to eradicate Star Wars Episode 1. The best character in that, or the first three episodes, was Darth Maul and he got killed off!!!!????!!!

If think he should make some of the novels into films, Drew Karpyshyn's Darth Bane trilogy or any of the Republic Commando novels would make great movies.

Who knows? Possibly you will have new versions of the ones already made with new director's cuts, or things added.

According to Lucas, Star Wars is the story of Anakin Skywalker, which ends with RotJ, this is all that he claims to be interested in, so the 6 films we have are the only ones we will get IMO.

After he made the first three, didn't Lucas say the intention was to make nine altogether; the three ' pre-quels ', and three to be set after the originals ?.

god i hope not as its all effects and no story
i think he should have left it with the original movie trilogy star wars. Empire and jedi and not have made the prequals as they are dire
yes there are 9 books and they were the middle of the series but are the strongest on screen
There have been sooooo many versions VHS, VHS Different cover,VHS remastered sound, VHS THX Sound, VHS Widescreen, VHS re-mastered editions etc etc and thats just 6 i know in the vhs format
it seems theres any excuse to flog the dead horse with release after release after release and now with dvds it seem the same monster has been let out of the box and theres meant to be a 3d release of them all soon - gravy train keeps on rolling!

if he does do anymore he wont be getting any of my money either in the cinema or in dvd sales as dont have any ( prequals) or esp Lucas other effort Indy 4

Not unless he does offshoots. After all, he finished the main story line didn't he.

If you look at the ESWU the story so far goes 5000 years before A New Hope and around 40 years after, there are about 130 books.
Lucas is now a LTD company, so evan after Goerge is long gone Lucas Arts,Lucas productions and Lucas books will still be around.Who ever takes over the company may decide to make more films.

Yes, especially in the wake of Avatar.

On a related matter, Indy 5 looks a definite now

If he gives the writing and directing duties to someone else I could be persuaded. If the TV series that Lucas talked about sometime ago goes ahead I imagine there would a made for tv movie pilot.

Didn't someone leak info about a new star wars movie and then quickly retracted it a few days later.

Just had a quick search and found this article.

I think its harsh to call them CACK.
Its all about what you are looking for in a movie. You can't sit and watch Terminator or any of the Alian films with your 7 year old child.
Star Wars is a good Yarn and when you talk to kids alot of them love Episode 1. The books are for adults which I enjoy reading.

I agree that If they do make more Films or Tv movies Lucas should let
some one else do the directing and screen play.Maybe some of the writers of the novels would be a good Idea.

Christ, I hope not! That fat bearded chubba necked fool should NEVER be behind the camera again, after Eps 1-3. And for that matter, he should get over Star Wars completely. He's basically been regurgitating the same film since 1977!

Best character? Oh please. A two dimensional bad guy that looks like he came back from a drunk face painter at a kids fayre.

But consider the alternatives!!! He had more going for him than Jar Jar, Ewan McGregors Obi Wan, the kid playing Darth as a jnr, Samuel L Jacksons character, Liam Neesons lame(ok, the pun was intended, sorry!) whoever............ and so on. I love the three original Star Wars films and felt that the gist of them had been sold out in favour of ever more migraine inducing special effects wig outs. The acting was so far below any of the actors normal performances that I am sure they don't get folk around for the night to show these films.

Ian McDiarmid was top notch as the scheming Palpatine, Christopher Lee was first class as Dooku and after that it is shades of grey.

Darth Maul said nothing that he later regretted and was very handy with the double ended light sabre, so he wins.

He should have left the Direction alone and had help writing the screenplay. The casting was hit and miss. I thought Liam Neeson did an Ok job with a weak role. Haden Christianson was the weakest. His acting was poor, but it can't help with such a poor script to work from, more so in Attack of the clones.

Liam Neeson carried it IMO. Otherwise the acting was rubbish, the dialogue childish and weak, but I still enjoyed it, and the effects were OHO. The pod race is still in the top five on my all-time favorite surround sound scenes, blu-rays included.

In the early 80's Lucas said he wanted there to be a total of nine films, with Luke essentially filling Ben Kenobi's shoes for films 7-9. He changed his mind and said he was only kidding when the new trilogy was made. Granted he might change his mind again, but I think everything should be left as it is. Although the Phantom Menace was tripe, Attack of the Clones was better and Revenge of the Sith the best, not least because its real star was Ian MacDiarmid.

If he was to make more films he may have to follow the novels already written. If not, and decides to write his own screenplays he may have to change canon with the novels that are written.
This may not stop him as poor Karen traviss as found out to her cost. She as wrote a number of Star Wars novels for lucas books dealing with Mandolorians. She depicted them as a warrior race but also a race who love thier family. She depicted the Mando planet as a forest green.
She as decided to stop writing for Lucas books now because she as been told they have decided to make mandolarians peace loving and the planet devastated by war hundreds of years ago.
This will apear in the animation Clone wars season 2. Now none of her last few novels do not make sence with the new story line.
That shows Lucas does not care about the reader or about Star Wars but just about $$$$$$$$$$$$$.

its a kid's series.
its a fairytale dressed up in sci-fi clothes.
its got princes who are handy with a magic sword, legions of hapless faceless goons and battling wizards.
its even got comedy pets for the main characters. jar jar, ewoks etc
as for redoing the earlier fils in 3d , its a total reshoot ,very expensive, but it is a money mine for Lucas so he might do it.
I want to know when we are going to see original film not just 'quels or one sort or the other.

episode 2 is worse than episode 1.

I agree, but i feel return of the Jedi was the weakest of the 6 films.

The new films had extremly poor casting compared to the old and relied far too much on special effects. Also I think Lucas made a huge mistake in trying to appeal to both fans of the old movies (who are now adults) and also the youngsters of today. Most of the old fans enjoyed Empire Strikes Back the most because it was the darkest. He should have realised that as adults they would want something similar but perhaps even darker. Not ****ing Jar-Jar Binks!

For me the only good thing about the prequels were the (souped up) sabre fight sequences. They lack the chivalric style of the originals which detracts from the whole Jedi KNIGHT thing but the incorporation of martial arts makes them all the more dazzling to watch.

As for new films, as people have said the franchise is now so huge that I'm sure that more will be made but hopefully not by Lucas - he has clearly lost the plot.

I think that the best we can hope for is a complete re-imagining of the series by a talented Director, as has happened with Batman and Terminator.
