Revenge of the Sith
For a good majority of Star Wars fans,
a type of morning will occur with the release of Star
Wars Revenge of the Sith. Now, this may not be because
Sith is a sad film, but that Revenge of the Sith will
be the last film in an amazing saga that has expanded almost three decades.
Or is it?
Sith Not the Last Star Wars Film?
During the premiere of Star Wars Revenge of
the Sith, IESB
was able to get the attention of Howard Roffman, the head of liscensing
for Lucasfilm. Howard Roffman admitted that Star Wars still has a future
with the growing fan-base and the upcoming television series. However, this
was not enough and IESB took it a step further and asked 'what about more
Star Wars movies?' In a surprising answer, Roffman admits that
anything is possible and to 'never say never.'
Now, I am sure there are tons of Star Wars fans jumping for joy
at the possibility of more Star Wars films, and IESB's new Star
Wars prediction will only add to your moment of happiness [below].
Here is the prediction put up by IESB,
who claim that since they were right about the television series, there
is good possibility they are right about more Star Wars films as
Here is our take on the next 5 - 10 years of Star Wars. Lucasfilm is promoting Sith as the final Star Wars film. Of course, what better way to get the fans out in droves to spend their money to see how he will finally bridge I, II, and III to IV, V, and VI. However, a few years down the line, the television series becomes very successful and has a great following and Lucasfilm begins to say well maybe there is a possibility of another theatrical release. But hey, its not our idea (wink wink) the fans are demanding it. We have to do it for the fans.
This is just not idle speculation but instead thoughts that have been passed onto us straight from inside the Skywalker Ranch.
Here is my take on the whole more Star Wars
films matter-- I agree with IESB that if there is one thing Lucas excels
at, it is business. The guy has a guaranteed cash cow in his hands and I
do believe that it will be hard for him to just go and close the shop on
this one. However, if there were more Star Wars films, Lucas may do what
he did for Empire Strikes Back and allow a new director to step
in [watch out for Kevin Smith] while he steps back and produces. Remember,
Empire Strikes Back is still to this day the best film in the entire
Star Wars saga. So, the loss of Lucas behind the camera is not
necessarily a bad thing; he likes editing more anyway.
Now, if we do not have Episodes VII-IX, I do believe that we may
actually go farther back in time to the creation of the sith, or during
the era of Knights of the Old Republic. The storyline for the best-selling
game Knights of the Old Republic is so well done that it would
be easy to adapt the story to film and have another guaranteed high grossing
Keep your fingers crossed.
