There already is an Episode Zero. It was marketed as Episode One.

Mace Windu's grandfather!!! I cant wait!!!
Why Anakin really turned to the dark side:
"Anakin, You're father I am" - Yoda
"No. No. That's not true! That's impossible!" - Anakin

From left to right: Padme's mother (played by Amanda Bynes), Mace Windu's uncle (played by Ving Rhames), Qui-gon's great-grandfather (played by Wayne Knight), and two random Jedi padawans (played by Eric Chrisitan Olsen and Derek Richardson).

You know, what I always thought would be funny was a Star Wars movie with Lucas and his crew playing the leads.

Ben Burtt would be Grand Moff Tarkin. I can picture George Lucas swinging across the Death Star chasm, in his flannel shirt.

Episode II: Shroud of the Dark Side

Emperor Jar-Jar
“Back when we made Star Wars, we just couldn’t make Palpatine as evil as we intended. Now, thanks to the miracles of technology, it is finally possible. Finally, I’ve created the movies that I originally imagined.” -George Lucas on the 2007 Extra Extra Special HD-DVD Edition

Maybe it was a good thing the Jedi were wiped out.

Had Anakin NOT been converted to the Dark Side:

Anakin (now 45 years old, 280 lbs): "Hey Padme... git yer ass in here and bring me a beer! And a bag of Gungan Rinds while yer at it!"

Padme (over 50 and nursing their 27th child): "Git it yerself you lazy bastard! Can't you seen I'm busy?!?!?"

Anakin: "Busy my ass! Dammit woman it ain't like I don't work hard and deserve my time. Who do you think runs around killin' Battle Droids and using the Force every day???"

Padme: "There ain't been none of them pussy 'Battle Droids' around fer years- ever since 'Emperor' Palpyteen tried to take over the Senate with that worthless 'apprentice' of his, 'Dartha JarJars'... heh heh.

Anakin: "Har! Yup- I can't believe that worthless dork we brought along with us way back when would go over to the Dark Side... as well as kill Palpatine...har har!"

Padme: "Jus cuz he didn't know which end of the Lightsaber was the 'business' end... lit it up in front of the Senate and impaled Palps on the spot... *chortle*... but then again at least JarJar still COULD ignite his saber... if'n ya know what I mean..."

Anakin: "Piss off! I knows what the hell you mean! So bring me one of them 'little blus pills' when you BRING ME MY DAMN BEER!!!"

and so on and so on and so on....

A 'Knights of the Old Republic' film would be awesome, but I agree that this news is probably just conjecture. I'd rather have this one-off film though than have a terrible O.C. / Smallville TV show ripoff detailing how Luke and Leia managed their way through puberty. Lucas will probably call it Tatooineville! Ugh!

Just give me an Aurra Sing movie...

...or Tales of the Mandalorians. That way, no Jedi, but still freaking cool.
Which is the more foolish, the fool (the OT) or the fool who follows (the PT)?

AAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!This cannot happen - too stupid - Lucas will absorb too much of the worlds money - run out of ideas. [starts to pant]

Then again, I'm doing an Old Republic fanfilm with a friend of mine, about a bounty hunter.
If no-one can see the Force, is it really there?

I know this is probably BS, but I actually like the idea. The PT installments have gotten progressively better as Lucas gets more practice at making movies after his 20 year hiatus, so an "Episode 0", if it followed the trend, would be even better than ROTS. What I find most tantalizing is that we may actually learn something about the Sith beyond the pathetic sketches of their history in the PT.

When I first heard about the PT I was stoked over the idea that we would not only get to see a time when dozens of totally bad-ass Jedis kept the peace and order, but we would learn more about the origins of the Sith. Unfortunately Lucas dissed me on both counts. The PT never shows the Jedi kicking serious ass, although in most of TPM the Jedi get punked, and a young brat accidentally does what the Jedia couldn't do for the whole movie; AOTC is even worse, since it shows us that Obi-Wan's character from ANH is actually a bit dumb (needs the younglings to explain the obvious to him about a missing star system and cheerfully strolls into ambushes) and not much of a Jedi (gets his ass beat by non-jedi like Jango Fett, lets a non-jedi assassin give him the slip, and on and on). The worst of AOTC for me was that Yoda turned out to be weak in the force, when he couldn't apprehend a two-bit villan like Dooku. In fact Yoda never learns anything of substance from his meditations with the force until ROTS, and then we learn of his communion with Qui-Gon only in passing! The overall effect of the PT was to diminish the stature of the Jedia. We are told that the Jedia kept peace and order for over a thousand years in the old republic, but as it is with too many characters and plotlines in the PT, Lucas never shows us that the Jedia are bad motherfuckers; he simply makes them into the "good guys" having equal fights with the bad guys.

I'm not saying that the Jedia should have kicked ass through the entire PT, since that would obviously be inconsistent with what we know happened. But it would have helped build character, and created more audience sympathy for the Jedi, if in Episode I we were shown what the Jedi were like at the peak of their powers. If Lucas can do this with an Episode 0, he could immensely improve the entire Star Wars saga.

i agree with most of hte stuff your saying however in my opinion the PT didnt degrade the Jedi they were pretty cool you look at teh stuff they did int eh PT and compare it to the OT and you'll see that there are alot more things there alot. something that would have been cool is to show some of the last stands of the jedi and have examples where its like one of them taking on like 100 soldiers then dieing after killing like 20 or 30 of them.
