i don't think he will. he once said that he will be too old once the prequel-trilogy is done.
of course nobody can be sure about that but i'm pretty sure he won't

theres no story point to 7-9, the empire has fallen, the good guys win. Post empire and new republic stuff is in EU, he would just screw his EU fanchise. It anything, he would make the prequel prequel. aka around tales of the jedi era

I think that Lucas's perspective on EU is that it is not cannon and therefore he would have a problem with screwing it, but even so there isn't much of a story for three more movies. And he has said many times he will be to old.

Are you guys not sastified with 6 movies?? I mean 6 is plenty of star wars to chew on. And if you want more READ...seriously. Also my bet would be that it is going to be very hard to make another trilogy, considering how almost every novel picked up after RoTJ, like The Truce at Bakura...and then Zahn's trilogy...and it went from there. It would be very difficult to come up with something that is not already happening or happened in the books.

Exactly, most of the people that hate the new movies but loved the old ones saw the OT when they were kids, which gives it an aura of invincibility and allows them to ignore many of the faults. I think that this trilogy has been as good as the original one, and people who don't realize that tend to expect it to be what they enjoyed when they were children, or to be as groundbreaking as the original--neither of which is possible.

Give the man break! He created whole SW universe and its main characters. Even though he first thought of making 9-12 episodes, he must have realized long time ago that there's NOT much to tell about post-RotJ -era; he mentioned somewhere though that only familiar characters in episodes 7-9 would have been C-3PO and RD-2D.

These six movies(of course when episode III is finished) tell the epic story of rise and fall of the Empire through the eyes of Skywalker family members and their friends/enemies. Now, seriously, how would YOU continue it?

I personally haven't been excited enough to read EU novels, because they tend to suck the life out of whole imperials vs. rebels/New Republic issue which movies already visualize perfectly. Only lately writers went a little further(or backwards) with "Tales of the Jedi" -storyline and introduction of Yuuzhan Vong, but in general(and this is only my oppinion) they seem to rely too much on situations and characters described in the movies.

Besides, after so many "fans" have griped about Lucas ruining his OWN story and some other bullsh** about "raping their childhood", why would they even deserve getting a new trilogy? Seriously, after Episode 3 people have to either A) realize there will be no more SW movies, try to get somekind of life and ENJOY those six episodes they already have OR B) read every EU novel/comic that will be made afterwards, play every new SW game and remember what it was like "back in those old days" when ANH premiered and you were like 8 years old and wish that Lucas(now 80) would still consider making new trilogy. :rolleyes:

I'm sorry, I must have misunderstood. Did you mean to say that you don't like the EU books, and you have read them? Because you make it sound like you haven't read them, but are still criticizing about things that only someone who has read them would know.

wat u guyz don't realize is that lucas already has the stories written on the last trilogy, it is just production that he dosn
t want to do, and yes the most recognizeable characters in the last movie are c-3po and r2-d2, this is becuase the origonal manuscripts that lucas wrote were the story of the 2 droids from begining to end of this whole thing, and also in the first movie i beleave still has luke, han, leia, all the origonal characters from the origonal starwars in it, and thats why lucas dosn't want to make it, bvecuase you would have to create computer generated mark hamell, carrie fisher, and harrison ford, to look younger, or completely generate their facxes on oteherpeoples bodies. BUT, it can be done, becuase in the movie gladiator, the actor who played proximo (the fat guy who was a freed gladiator slave) died of a heart attack and they computer generated his face onto another actor.
and for u all who think nothing will happen becuase the empire has alreday fallen, think again, remember that this game (jedi knight 2) all happens 8 years after the fall of the empire!

that cause it would cheaping the saga if he was to add more at the end. Star wars would become like any other series, like the mummy, rehashing the story with a new enemy
The story as someone has already said, is the rise and fall of the Empire and the part that the Skywalker family played in it.

The only open end I could see happening would be 20 years after RotJ with little Anakin Solo and his pack beating up people in a style like the movie 'Spy Kids'. Is that what you want? IS it?! No no no you all want something better....maybe Star Wars: Jar Jar's adventures....

Well, I haven't read them, but I have tried to check things out to keep myself up-to-date with new characters/locations/timelines and other; I also read comics now and then and play SW games which both fill out some gaps.

I knew I would probably draw some attention to myself with that statement, but from what I have seen and heard, everything(in EU) seems to go on forever without any real purpose.

That's why I'm mostly satisfied with the movies. They DO have some real purpose and destination, and I find it rediculous that some people gripe about prequel trilogy being totally useless. However, at the same time they insist wanting to see episodes 7-9, because original movies are "sacred".

What prequels do here, is that they fleshen out those "minor" characters(Obi-Wan, Yoda, Boba Fett, perhaps even Owen Lars and Aunt Beru) seen in original trilogy and especially show us, why Anakin Skywalker turned to the dark side in the first place, and how the Empire was complished. Even though someone could say that they only serve as introductions to original trilogy, they DO enhance it and help us to understand those characters and their motivation better. So in my eyes they have essential place in the saga that is worth telling out.

However, the problem with episodes 7-9 is that after the fall of the Empire many important characters seen in prequels and original(people I already mentioned earlier) are long dead now. What is left to tell? Well, practically heroes start to reconstruct Republic again, go through new battles and so on, but what then? If six episodes can be seen as the story of Anakin Skywalker's life and how pure evil ruled the galaxy, what would there be after this epic battle has been won? Han Solo and Leia get kids and even Luke finds himself a woman while creating a Jedi Order from the scratch? I personally don't think it would add anything new(except being totally obvious) as an extention to this saga. :rolleyes:

Most of the people have nailed it on the bat, what's to see after ROTJ other than the Empire already crumbling ?


If LA should make more SW movies, he has to go backwards to the War with Darth Bane, The hyperspace war, or the Sith War.

Most likely the sith war due to it's more popular nature.

I knew I would probably draw some attention to myself with that statement, but from what I have seen and heard, everything seems to go on forever without any real purpose with EU.

Read more into the NJO, it is a directed story arc, 22 books long with multiple authors which essentially changes the face of the SW galaxy, it is essentially about passing the torch onto the new heros of Star Wars. The original characters play greatly into it, but they are being pushed back into more of a mentoring position.

Also, what purpose should it work to? It's about continuing the stories, not moving towards an end.

Also, your problems with 7, 8, and 9 are similar to the problems someone might have with 1, 2, and 3--there is no real purpose, how Anakin falls to the dark side is pointless trivia, how did Palpatine fall to the Dark side?? Dooku? Maul?? Obviously Lucas had more in mind after RotJ or he would have never mentioned it. Maybe it's the story of Chewies rise to glory--I wouldn't really know, I'm not George Lucas.

The point is that you can't think of it in terms of current EU, that means nothing to Lucas's vision, as someone once wrote, it's basically one step up from fan fiction. I personally enjoy reading it, but I don't have any illusions as to how much it affects Lucas's vision.

Saber fights rule and if sequels were made they prolly wouldn't have many, or as much, or as important, or as memorable ones.
