The Star Wars Prelude Trilogy (PREQUELS-TO-THE PREQUELS)

 (Edited)

So, Here is the heads up for us (OOT FANS), I really think the nightmare of Star Wars Prequels will start again.

In 2005, George Lucas talked about making more Prequels
http://www.cinematical.com/2005/05/25/lucas-idea-for-new-star-wars-prequel/

You know how you can tell if a movie has things in it as lead-ins to a sequel. Well, The Prequel trilogy has allot of things in it that seems to leave things open for not a sequel...  but for more Prequels.

George Lucas has said many times HIS Star Wars Saga is about the life of Anakin Skywalker, but there are big mysteries about the origin of Anakin Skywalker's birth, the prophecy and others things about past events before  Episode I.  

All the movies of the Prequel trilogy talk about things which happen before Episode I, but are not said in a clear way. These scenes seem to be written in a way that the viewers already know all about the past events before  Episode I. It is also odd that George Lucas still keeps things about Star Wars saga secret (like what Yoda's race is, Palpatine's past and Anakin Skywalker's birth), even thou he say the HIS Star Wars Saga is over.


This is what I think the nightmare PREQUELS TO STAR WARS SAGA will have:

Palpatine's origin.
Yoda's origin.
The origin of the prophecy.
a Young count Dooku as Yoda's Padawan
a young Qui-Gon as Count Dooku's Padawan
Mandalorians as the "Troopers" characters like the clone troopers or the storm troopers. more likely they will be called Mandalorian Troopers.
a young obi-wan as Qui-Gon 's Padawan.
The origin of Anakin Skywalker's birth 
could show a young Padmé at age 5 around the time of Anakin's birth or even show her birth.
The fall of the sith and will show why The last sith (Palpatine) want revenge on the the jedi.

------
Since EP I, Lucas has came out with a film three years after the movie before.


1999- STAR WARS EP I
2002- STAR WARS EP II
2005- STAR WARS EP III

2008-INDY 4
2011-INDY 5
2014-INDY 6 (more likely after INDY 6 comes out, Lucas will start talking about The new Star Wars Prelude Trilogy).

2015- Lucas more likely will start work on The new Star Wars Prelude Trilogy. 2015 will be the 10th Anniversary of Episode III.

2017- PREQUEL TO STAR WARS SAGA 0.1 (George Lucas will be 73) 2017 is oddly the same year as Star Wars' 40th Anniversary.
2020- PREQUEL TO STAR WARS SAGA 0.2 (George Lucas will be 76)
2023- PREQUEL TO STAR WARS SAGA 0.3 (George Lucas will be 79)

If you think George Lucas will be to old to direct these "prequels to the prequels"... Think again, look at Clint Eastwood who is 78 and has been directing all thru his 70's. also look at other directors who are in their 70's and even 80's
----
The thing is The Prequel trilogy are not Prequel to the Star Wars Saga, GL sees Prequel trilogy has a part of the Star Wars Saga. The New Prequel films will more likely be seen has a Prelude trilogy to the Star Wars Saga and more likely will not have Episode in the titles, this also leaves an opening for even more Star Wars Saga Prequels.     

Oh, THE HORROR..... THE HORROR!

may i had that darth plaguise was palpatines master. how palguise took up palpatine idk.

the prophecy states that "the one consumed of mini chlorians will rise and banish the darkness and bring balance to the force." it might not be the exact wording, but yea. how it was invented, who the prophet was, and how it was known is a mystery to me.

btw, the majority of mandalorians are bounty hunters and they are raised as tough warriors.

 Fortunately the world ends in 2012... see, even the end of the world has its good points ;)

I saw the original theatrical release of the Old Trilogy on the big screen and I'm proud of it...
How did I accomplish that (considering my age) is my secret...

Something worth taking into consideration is that Eastwood is in far better physical condition than George Lucas. I'd be surprised if George is still directing in his 70s. In fact, I'd be surprised if he ever directs anything again. Red Tails has been a project he has talked about writing and directing himself for the longest time, and now it comes out that he has hired both a writer and a director for the film. I think that may well be a sign he is done with directing.

The fact that there were many events that were mentioned to have taken place pre-TPM, doesn't mean that it was intended that there would be movies to explain those events. It is typical in story telling to make references to past events to add some backstory and history to the characters and events.

True, but, then again, that's what we logically said about what ended up becoming the prequels as well... ^_~

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming... Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

Eastwood is also in far better physical condition than William Shatner, but William Shatner now at the age of 77 still acts. Also take a look at the behind the scenes footage of the Prequel trilogy, all George Lucas did was stand and pointed at things he wanted or sat behind big monitors or talked to the actors or played with Heyden's hair.  People act like directing is some physical work, but it is not. Some directors maybe physical in their directing, but George Lucas is not one of them.

These action are Classic George Lucas. People thought he done with directing back in the 80's & 90's and could never direct a film again. Well, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace shown people that their were wrong.

Yes, It is typical in story telling to make references to past events to add some backstory and history to the characters and events.... but, the unanswered questions of The Prequel trilogy about the past are like the unanswered questions of The Original trilogy which lead to George Lucas making The Prequel trilogy. EP III was the so-called last star wars film, but it did not close the doors of the unanswered questions, instead it the opened even more doors. Then You have George Lucas back in 2005 (shorty after EP III came out) saying he have ideas for a Prequel to the Prequels and You think George Lucas did not intended the unanswered questions about things before The Phantom Menace to be explain in movies!

 

The Prequel Star Wars trilogy made $2,422,714,701 Worldwide and you think George Lucas is NOT thinking about making a Sequel or Prequel to it!

 

I hate the idea of more bad star wars Prequels, but the written on the wall, George Lucas is going to make more Star Wars Prequels!

Directing may just seem like pointing and sitting behind monitors, but it is actually some very stressful work. Maybe some directors are able to make light of it and take it easy, but from documentaries and interviews, George seems to be one to get pretty stressed.

I never thought George was done with directing back in the eighties and nineites. This guy was suppose to be an amazing up and coming director, by the mid eighties he had just finished with Star Wars, and now was expected to get on with making the kinds of films he had wanted to make, because that is what he said he wanted to do after ROTJ was done.

I didn't expect him to direct the upcoming prequel trilogy, because he said he was going to hire a different director for each film, but I wasn't surprised when he changed his mind and did them himself. He never announced that he was retireing from the directors chair. I don't think anybody believed he never direct another movie again back then. Even back then he was talking about Red Tails.

I still don't think this prelude trilogy will ever happen, not saying it is impossible, but I highly doubt it. If it does get made, I imagine it will be at a day and an age when George doesn't have anything to do with it and the SW liscense has been opened up for others to play around with. Kind of like Star Trek.

Prequel to the Prequels have already been done in books Like the Darth Bane trilogy, the Kotor games, the star wars chronology, The Knights of the Old Republic Comics, Tales of the Jedi and Sith War comics. 

In novels they uncovered the Machinations of Papatine to Unseat Chancellor Valorum through lies and treachery.  That novel i believe i cannot recall the name was the prequel to episode 1.

The Prequel to episode 2 was written by Alan Dean Foster.

Labyrinth of Evil i believe was the Prequel to Episode III.

The prequel in book form to episode IV is Dark Lord the Rise of Darth Vader, and a further prequel to episode IV was delivered in the forms of the Force Unleashed Game, and Purge comics.

The far future Series which would be set more than a hundred years after the Legacy of the Force Novel series is the Legacy comics.

The skywalker Bloodline continues into this series.

Any farther back than Anakin Skywalkers birth would there be stories of an Earlier Skywalker bloodline was Shmi the first Skywalker to give birth to a force sentitive Like Anakin or did anakin have jedi ancesters or whatever the force users were called before the existance of jedi.  I think they were called Whills, or WHill users and also called the ashla. The ancestors of the sith were called the Bogan.

All of this is Expanded Universe things and George Lucas does not see them as Canon.

Look at The EU's Boba Fett before EP II came out. A full-grown Boba Fett in the EU fought in the clone wars, but then EP II changed that.

Also Lucas is always rewritten History.

Also most non-star wars fanatics who watch the movies know nonething about The EU.

The Star Wars chronology past the movies (like the EU) are a waste of time and money. 

The EU is just a scam to take money from Star Wars Fans when there is no movies being made.

The EU is a Flase chronology and this not real canon.

The only chronology which George Lucas sees as Canon are the Six film of his Star Wars Saga and not the novels or comics or games. 

This is some of the reasons I rarely buy or read the novels or comic.

For myself, I see Just the OOT and Anything EU before 1984 as canon. I Hate the SE, Prequels and Spin-offs. This is My own Star Wars Canon and not Lucas'. - Hunter Six

"I don't read that stuff. I haven't read any of the novels. I don't know anything about that world. That's a different world than my world. But I do try to keep it consistent. The way I do it now is they have a Star Wars Encyclopedia. So if I come up with a name or something else, I look it up and see if it has already been used. When I said [other people] could make their own Star Wars stories, we decided that, like Star Trek, we would have two universes: My universe and then this other one. They try to make their universe as consistent with mine as possible, but obviously they get enthusiastic and want to go off in other directions." - George Lucas

 

"They have their own kind of world. There's three pillars of Star Wars. I'll probably get in trouble for this but it's OK! There's three pillars: the father, the son and the holy ghost. I'm the father, Howard Roffman [president of Lucas Licensing] is the son and the holy ghost is the fans, this kind of ethereal world of people coming up with all kinds of different ideas and histories. Now these three different pillars don't always match, but the movies and TV shows are all under my control and they are consistent within themselves. Howard tries to be consistent but sometimes he goes off on tangents and it's hard to hold him back. He once said to me that there are two Star Trek universes: there's the TV show and then there's all the spin-offs. He said that these were completely different and didn't have anything to do with each other. So I said, "OK, go ahead." In the early days I told them that they couldn't do anything about how Darth Vader was born, for obvious reasons, but otherwise I pretty much let them do whatever they wanted. They created this whole amazing universe that goes on for millions of years!"
