New Star Wars movies

There is absolutely no confirmation that he is making three more movies. The only thing he has done is make his employees since NDAs (Non-Disclosure Agreements). This effectively shuts anyone up from being able to talk about what is happening on the Ranch. If anything, look at it as a precautionary measure. Find the thread entitled "Episodes 7,8,9" and read more in there. The last couple pages in particular. It has a lot more information and it beats trying to repeat it all here.

Yes, I heard this too.

Industrial Light and Magic has just signed a NDA's (Non Disclosure Agreement) with every employee at Lucas's company ILM promise not to talk about the possibility of episode's 7, 8 and 9 being made. If Lucas says they're not being made, why the NDA's? Of course, since when has Lucas been consistent?

If this turns out to be legit STAR WARS fans will have a Brit magazine named Hotdog to thank for it, but here goes: according to the December 2003 issue of that magazine, Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew said that when he signed his contract to work in EPISODE III, there was a clause that he would be "required" to work in EPISODES VII, XIII and IX of the STAR WARS film series.


We shall see.

I, for one, would welcome episodes VII, VIII, IX. It's more Star Wars. I don't agree with all the changes GL has made to the movies and I certainly hate Jar Jar, but I still enjoyed episodes I and II. I have my OT laserdiscs (all 3 sets + SE) I can watch if I'm feeling particularily purist on any given day, but I've always wondered how GL envisioned the SW Universe after ROTJ. How does the Universe rebound? Has balance truly been restored? Is there a new threat that comes to the forefront?

Now I know that many of you will certainly disagree, and that's what makes this forum great for debate, but that's my 2 cents anyway.

Cheers,
Chris

I would rather have a TV show set between RotS and ANH than 3 more movies. If Episode III turns out to be as good as it's shaping up to be, then there is no reason to destroy an already perfect saga with 3 more movies that could potentially totally ruin the franchise. This isn't Star Trek.

I always thougth Timothy Zahn's books would make excellent movies. But then you'd have the old and bloated versions of the main characters.

Or, gosh, Lucas could just CG all of them.

SHHHHHH!!!!

Mr Lucas, please disregard anything that Starboy says here. He's delusional. Pay it no mind.

Please.

Yeah, or Pixar could do them

But seriously, I remember reading a quote in Time or something before episode II. Lucas was talking about his "great success" (quotes mine) of Jar Jar and what a technical masterpiece it was. They did not yet have an Anakin and he said that they had fiddled with the idea of a CG Anakin. He said (now the quotes are his) "the decision would be so daring, the fans would just love it."

It's like when your mom puts something on your plate and says "try it you'll just love it."
