More Star Wars Films after 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 well:

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 film.

Keep your fingers crossed.
