Rumor: George Lucas planning new Star Wars trilogy; LucasFilm already denying it

IESB.net is reporting a fairly huge rumor today. The site is reporting via their “ultra top-secret Lucasfilm insider” that George Lucas is planning a new Star Wars trilogy with plans for release within two years after the 3D re-release of Episodes 1-6 (which will begin releasing one a year beginning in 2012):

Uncle George’s modus operandi has not changed, the plan is that he will self finance the new trilogy after he rakes in an expected $500 – $750 million dollars with the re-release of the entire Star Wars Saga in 3D and on Blu-Ray.

The ideal plan, according to our spy at Skywalker Ranch, is to be able to release a new Star Wars film within 24 months after the release of the last re-re-release (is that right?) of Return of the Jedi 3D.

It’s too early for any significant details on the plot or story, but IESB.net has some basic details:

Too early for story details but one thing that our source is certain about, they will not be prequels but instead sequels. It’s not for certain if they will be the long awaited Episodes 7, 8 and 9 but could instead be Episodes 10, 11 and 12 or possibly even further out in the Star Wars timeline. And by giving space in the timeline, possibly even as far as 100 years or 1,000 years in the Star Wars universe future, Lucas avoids having to make these stories “fit in” with what the previous stories have told.

According to our sources, the most likely scenario for the films is that they will exist in the same universe but will not have anything to do with the Skywalker Clan. That story has been told, that starship has sailed.

Not surprisingly, Lucasfilm is already denying the report: Continue reading Rumor: George Lucas planning new Star Wars trilogy; LucasFilm already denying it

Star Wars hits Blu-ray in 2011 + Watch a deleted scene from Return of The Jedi

George Lucas announced at “Star Wars Celebration V” that all six Star Wars films will be released in a Blu-ray box set in fall 2011:

“I wish I could say it was coming out this year,” said Lucas, “but it will come out next year.”

Fans at the event were even treated to a special look at the bonus material: a deleted scene from ‘Return of the Jedi’ thought to have been lost:

The scene has long been talked about online — a sequence that depicts Luke Skywalker assembling his new, green-bladed lightsaber prior to infiltrating Jabba the Hutt’s palace. After completing the Jedi weapon, Luke stashes it in R2-D2’s dome. What makes the Jedi deleted clip so remarkable is that it made it all the way to postproduction before it was cut, so it is a rare example of a cut scene with completed visual effects and music.

Actor Mark Hamill came out to describe the scene, remarking that once again his original introduction in a Star Wars film was cut out (his Anchorhead introduction was, of course, cut from A New Hope). Luke’s intro is purposely played as ominous, with his face cowled in shadows and his intentions unclear.”I had the black cloak, the glove, and I thought, wow, this time around I get to be the antagonist. Little did I know I was predicting the path of the prequels,” said Hamill, noting the similarities to Luke in this scene and Anakin Skywalker’s appearance.

Luckily for those of us who weren’t at “Star Wars Celebration V”, the clip has surfaced online. Check it out after the jump.

New Star Wars animated comedy series in the works

Robot Chicken creators/executive producers Seth Green and Matthew Senreich are teaming with writer Brendan Hay (“The Daily Show”) and Lucasfilm Animation to develop a new animated Star Wars project that will explore the Star Wars universe from a comedic perspective:

“There are so many stories taking place in the Star Wars universe, and they don’t all have to focus on the fate of the galaxy,” said Grimes. “We’re looking at Star Wars from a new perspective; this will be a glimpse at how the rest of the galaxy is affected by the events of the Saga. There’s a lot of humor to be mined from that.”
