View Full Version : What about the third trilogy?

07-25-2001, 06:09 PM
A couple of things I've read say that the final 3 movies will never be made. Does anyone have any input on this?

07-25-2001, 06:12 PM
I also heard this. So far Lucas has said:
There will be 6 movies total.
There will be 9 movies total.
There will be 12 movies total.
6 is the latest, but I'm crossing my fingers for 12. ;)

07-25-2001, 06:12 PM
12? When was that ever said?

07-25-2001, 06:15 PM
ive heard the same thing...
it upsets me, obviously,
i hope he changes his mind though, we the fans might have a say in that :)

07-25-2001, 06:39 PM
Check Behind the Magic...It's one of the trivia questions.

07-25-2001, 06:42 PM
Bah just gimme the answer lol. Besides, GL could still change his mind. It's not like he hasn't done it before.

Right before he made TPM he said Star Wars was eventually going to consist of nine movies. Half way through TPM he decided to drop the last three. They will not be made, thankfully. I don't know about you guys but I don't want someone else filling Lukes, Leias, and Hans shoes.

07-25-2001, 07:11 PM
It wouldnt be like that though. It would probably have been their children or something...or another set of characters.

07-25-2001, 07:45 PM
i had heard the last 3 consist of lukes journey into the darkside and then his retribution
and everything rhett said is also what ive heard :)
i hope he changes his mind...

07-25-2001, 10:44 PM
well, luke went to the dark side in the Dark Empire comics. and GL could still use the org actors, they would be older in the stories also...

07-25-2001, 10:45 PM
lol...not 30-35 years older
like 5-10

07-25-2001, 10:47 PM
Yeah, actors would be a problem. Do you want someone like Leonardo DeCrapio playing Luke?

Harrison ford could still play Han. Droids. Does anyone know what Mark Hammil and Carrie Fisher look like nowadays?

NOOOOOOOOOO! :eek: You blaspheme! Don't even suggest something like that! :mad: That s*it isn't funny...

Die Leo, die!

07-25-2001, 10:54 PM
carrie fisher still arouses me :eek:
mark hamill looks like a flaming homosexual
heh, hes got a mad receding hairline too!

Time has not been kind to Mark and Carrie...

07-25-2001, 11:49 PM
harrison is still up for an indy 4 if george ever gets his ass in gear (well, he is kinda busy)... and, umm, i forgot where i was going... damn.

07-26-2001, 04:12 PM
Harrison Ford said hed never play Han Solo again. Mark Hammil these days looks too fat, and Carrie Fisher looks too old. It doesnt look too good for the original cast does it.

07-26-2001, 04:13 PM
What are you talking about Pretzel, Mark Hamill always looked like a flaming homosexual. Hehehe. But seriously, time hasnt been that cruel to him, he still looks the same just a little wrinklier and older.

07-26-2001, 04:42 PM
i like mark hamill, seriously
but if you look at those beginning waste-of-time parts in the SE you will see him talking, heh, the haircut really doesnt look well on him, and that voice....oooh ***æ

Hamill could still do another SW movie, he doesn't look too old. So could Harrison Ford, but he doesn't wanna (anyone know why?).
I guess it kinda depends where you wanna set the movies? What would the global plot be? The global plot of the original trilogy was this Rebellion against the Empire. The global plot of the prequels (so far a little on the weak side) is, I guess, the building up of the Galactic Empire headed by (Sidious)/Palpatine (<-Please note the parenthesis, I'm guessing that Sid=Palpy).
But what would be the global plot of the sequel trilogy? The overtaking of Coruscant? They'd kinda have to follow the books. They could have some pretty epic battles. The Battle of Coruscant I'd like to see in particular. AT-ATs and AT-STs walk the streets of the city, while A-Wings (& E-Wings) battle TIEs in the skies!

I reckon the Thrawn trilogy would be perfect the third trilogy :)

07-26-2001, 08:05 PM
ford said he hated the movies, he never liked being that character, he said it bored him
and no, sid isnt palpy...yet

You are all forgetting something. George is aging too.

He's 57 years old if I'm not mistaken? And he still have to release episode 2-3! Assuming that Episode 3 will be out by 2005, he'll be 61! Again, assuming that each following episode would take three years to do, then he would be 70 years old by Episode 9's release!

Kinda old, huh? Besides, he said that as the rest of the prequel trilogy unfold, we'll see how Star Wars really is the telling of Anakin Skywalker's tale. Anakin died in RotJ, so There won't be any other trilogies.

And it would look farfetched, IMHO.

He'll be dead before then. :o

Yes, Sidious is Palpatine. "DUUUUH" :p

Harrison hated his roll so much that he asked George to kill Han off the end of RotJ. Luckily, he loves playing Indiana Jones, And the next one already has scripts being written. :)

07-26-2001, 11:36 PM
here is my idea..
clone wars..
and since yoda and mace, too POWERFUL masters
didnt pick up on palpy at the burning ceremony
he obviously wasnt a dark lord of the sith YET!
he probably has a clone of him and sidious combined or something...it all makes sense for me...think about it

07-26-2001, 11:41 PM
Ya I sorta wondered why Yoda didn't feel a disurbance in the force at the funeral. Didn't Yoda say something about the darkside being hard to penetrate or something? Oh well, I guess it's just a story anway, so it might sacrifice a detail or two for the sake of the storyline.

Harrison Ford hated to play Han Solo? Argh that's hidious.

07-26-2001, 11:42 PM
I think its called the cloak of the sith. Sith lords can hide their presence from even the higest jedi.

07-26-2001, 11:43 PM
hes an anti-geek
oh well, i wish Lucas woulda made him sign a lifetime contract...
i woulda played Han...in a heartbeat, look at all the exposure that one role gave him!!

07-27-2001, 02:44 AM
well in "yoda"(weird al song) they all did sign lifetime contracts, too bad it wont stick in court...

i wonder why harrison wouldnt like playing han? huh...

07-27-2001, 02:49 AM
I bet Lucas would pay a lot of cash to get Harrison Ford back as Han.

07-27-2001, 03:14 AM
Hmmmm.....I have an idea to solve the actor problem, by the time 2005 roles around 3D tech should be quite good, they could just take the orginal trilogy and make CGI models of 'em!

The voices are a little harder to solve I suppose, but since the charactors would be older I guess they might not have as much trouble.

07-27-2001, 09:12 PM
Maybe in some years actors wont be needed at all! But I doubt it

Now you mention it Boba, I had heard that he wanted Han to die

07-27-2001, 09:13 PM
so much for my future...
i was SO set on becoming a famous actor!! :)

07-27-2001, 11:56 PM
i still am gonna be an actor, all those secnes where people die! im gonna die for real, so they actors dont...
