Give it a month or two after the release of Star
Wars Revenge of the Sith when the hype will begin to get
out of control for the entire saga in 3D [which is coming] and the upcoming
two Star Wars television shows. So, here is a beginning to what
Lucas has to say on both those subjects.
Lucas talks more Star Wars
Lucas on the Future of Star Wars
Besides just talking about an Indiana Jones
4, Lucas had no problem jumping into the future of Star Wars.
A future that consists of the entire saga being re-shown in 3D and two television
series. Here is a little of what Lucas had to tell Hollywood.Com:
Is that where the future of Star Wars
is, on television?
Lucas: "Yeah, we're not going to do any more movies."
And what will be your involvement? Will you be overseeing everything?
Lucas: "No, I just hire the guy that does everything. And
then I step away and let him do his job. I'm not going to have anything
to do with it at all."
Is it true that starting in 2007 we're going to see all the Star
Wars films again in 3-D?
Lucas: "Well, we're hoping so. It really depends how fast
the theater owners finally get on the stick and put digital cinema in their
theaters, because it won't work without having digital projectors. So we're
hoping it's a way of pushing digital. I've been trying for six years to
get digital--we did Phantom Menace digitally in four theaters, we did Attack
of the Clones in about 115 theaters, and now a lot of people have sold their
theaters so we're only going to be in about 80 theaters now. But in Europe
it's gone from about 20 theaters to now there's about 300. So we're now,
depending on the rest of the world. In the United States, the film industry
has kind of gotten together and formed organizations to make sure this doesn't
happen in the foreseeable future."
Is that frustrating for you?
Lucas: "Yeah, it's very frustrating for me. They're doodling
on purpose for various reasons, to see how they can control it, but they're
not going to be able to and it'll all work itself out. They deny that they're
stalling, but six years is a long time to wait for this stuff to happen.
They'll say 'Oh, no,' but we've been shooting this way for six years, we've
been projecting this way for six years, the equipment's all there, everything's
ready to go, the quality's better than film, and they're just still arguing
among themselves about nothing."
Not to get too excited-- but how sick would Star Wars look in 3D.
We'd have lasers flying by our heads and lightsaber swings that would cause
us to duck. SICK!
