Star Wars VII - IX in the works?


Recommended Posts

Mind you, this is from the Internet, where things aren't always as they seem. So take it for what it's worth.

Rumours are circulating on the internet that George Lucas is planning another Star Wars trilogy.

A user at fansite TheForce.net, who claimed to be a Lucasfilm insider, said that staff at Industrial Light & Magic have already signed non-disclosure agreements pertaining to special effects work on three sequels, which would follow on from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

Lucas had originally planned Star Wars as a nine-film work, but later changed his mind. He told E Online in 1998 "It really ends at part six."

Lynn Fox, spokeswoman for Lucasfilm categorically told E Online, "The rumours are absolutely untrue", adding, "Star Wars: Episode III--Revenge of the Sith is our last and final instalment".

However, TheForce.net's Joshua Griffin told E Online that he believed there was some truth in the rumours, pointing out that there would be no need for non-disclosure agreements if the sequels were not at least under discussion.

He added that sources in Australia claim that Lucas had expressed an interest in shooting the sequels there, where he filmed the prequels.

I dare say the disclosures are true, but were part of the Ep1-3 disclosures. Lucas was probably just covering his arse, incase he decided to throw ideas around or such.

I would be interested in 7,8 & 9 as there are many great stories there including

- Return of Palpatine

- Han and Leiah's twins

- The new Jedi Academy, started by Luke.

- Luke "turning" to the dark side

Oh and more ewoks :evil: I kid, I kid.

I'd love to see some of the stuff taken from the Young Jedi Knights series. Jacen & Jaina (the Solo Twins), Lowbacca (Chewie's Nephew) & Tennel Ka. I got into those books so quickly it's not even funny

I'd like to see the Thrawn Trilogy ("Heir to the Empire", "Dark Force Rising", and "The Last Command") written by Zahn or the Jedi Academy Trilogy ("Jedi Search", "Dark Apprentice", and "Champions of the Force") written by Anderson. I've always wanted to see the Thrawn Trilogy on film though.
