I have predicted this and now it seems that an
email with no name may just get this rumor rolling. It is being hinted that
George Lucas, the master of mischief, is already planning to make none other
than another Star Wars film! [20th Century Fox arises in applause]
We may have another Star Wars prequel in the works down the road...
how about KOTOR
Star Wars Prequel
Lets look at some of the truths to the Star
So why the hell would 20th Century Fox even think to allow Lucas to stop
making [or supporting] these films? Well, it seems that Lucas and 20th Century
are ready for another go, but this time we are going even farther back than
the new trilogy. We are talking about a Star Wars prequel that
occurs long before Episodes I-IX. So, what should we expect now?
- Star Wars Revenge
of the Sith is a hit and is currently smashing box
- The new Star Wars trilogy proves that Star Wars
fans and general moviegoers love to know more about the Star Wars
- Any Star Wars film is a guaranteed cash cow... no matter
if it is bad or not.
- Just about everybody gains [theatres, fans, 20th Century Fox, Lucas,
ILM, LucasFilm, Hasbro, other commercial groups] from the release of
a Star Wars movie.
First off, I know there are those out there that
want to see Star Wars Episodes VII-IX made to conclude the Skywalker
series. However, I think even 20th Century Fox is afraid to go near this
one. Most of the characters necessary for the films have aged... a lot.
How would Lucas try to explain the differences in appearance in his characters,
and why Han Solo is only a few years away from a walking stick? The last
thing Lucas wants to do is destroy the image that the original characters
carried away with them at the end of Return [*cough Revenge] of the
So, how can Lucas take a safe approach to creating more Star Wars
films? Make a prequel of course! And, while this is not part of any rumor
yet, why not use the story laid down in the best-selling game Knights
of the Old Republic. Or, to go one better, Lucas can even begin before
Knights of the Old Republic with the Mandelorian Wars and end with
the Knights of the Old Republic. This game adds amazing elements
to the Star Wars story and has one of the best twists I have seen... ever.
Are we talking about a new Star Wars trilogy here? I f*@king hope
By the way, after searching the web for more info, I realized that MovieHole
has a similar report, but they state that Cinescape
may be reporting on this same rumor shortly. Yes, as of now, this wonderful
story is only a rumor. However, quickly tell every friend you know, and
tell them to write into 20th Century Fox saying you completely support this
decision by Lucas.
For the time being, go to the Star
Wars Revenge of the Sith Movie Page for anything Star
