When Episode II was in development, it looked like Lucas was having trouble and he said in an interview that he would have preferred to have 4 years instead of 3 to make the movie.

There was no script revisions for Episode 2 and 3 like there were for the other films. They filmed from essentially the rough draft.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I can almost see wanting to rid himself of the whole responsibility. It's sorta like what Shatner said on SNL 20 years ago:

"Get a life people. You've taken something I did on a lark and turned it into some sort of gigantic waste of time..." (or something like that).

But seriously. He added some scenes with better FX, and even if he DIDN'T make Greedo shoot first people would have been freaking out. I PREFER the newer ones with the improved FX. If I have to have Greedo shooting first to get FX that are awesome, so be it. Anyway, people act like the universe ISN'T HIS TO DO WITH AS HE PLEASES. Now it's someone else's responsibility. I bet he's saying GOOD RIDDANCE.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I've read Lucas reflecting on that and stating that Ep I and II should have been the same movie and EpIII could have been two.

Oh well. I'm thrilled someone else will be directing this bizarre new franchise.

I'll believe it when i see it.. 2015 seems too soon for such a huge project.

Star Wars isn't some kind of indie movie you can produce in 6 months.. they are huge and i don't know if they can be made in 2-3 years.
Get ready to be surprised.

I do agree that 2015 seems just a little too soon, and it makes me think they've jumped ahead and announced the project before they'd even started putting any thought into what it will be about. 2016 might be better, but 2017 would be cool because of the fortieth anniversary of the original movie.
This may have been in the works, secretly for years.

Oh man... imagine the nerdrage when all the Zhan trilogy elements are ignored... no Jedi twins, no Mara Jade, no Thrawn.
Unless the story is centred on the Zhan trilogy which would be sort of awesome (fucking amazing).
The time to do the Thrawn story has long passed because all the principal actors are too old now (unless they rewrite the story heavily).

Recasting the iconic three? Huge gamble.. it did pay off with the new Star Trek movie but that's like lightning in a bottle.. extremely rare.

Especially finding a new Han Solo could be tricky.. he brought so much to the role. Now that i think about it.. Nathan Fillion might be open to the role

Well.. 3 years will pass comparably fast and late next year we might get to see first solid shots and story details.

They can recast Luke like they did with Obi-Wan, but with an older looking actor.

They'll just go to the Avengers well. Chris Evans as Luke, Cobie Smulders as Leia, Robert Downey Jr. as Han.

Well my first thought on reading this earlier today was "Wait a minute. Todai is April 1st, right?" My second thought upon realizing the date was "Well, there goes the EU."

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Suffice it to say, I had an out of body experience when I heard the news. And all I ask is---no matter what the stories will be about, when they take place after JEDI and how action or character-oriented they wind up being---make sure someone else besides George Lucas directs them.

The man couldn't get emotion out of Roberto Benigni, for crying out loud. Let someone else with better, less rusty directing chops helm the new Trilogy.

Would love to see an "A list" director in charge.

Wow, I didn't see this coming.

I was never a big fan of Star Wars, but this will be interesting. Just on general principles, I hope they go with a continuation rather than a re-boot.
