    Yep; I heard him being interviewed on the radio, and he said just that.

    Well we could see more of this? Lucas did say he wanted musical numbers in his films...

    I actually find this quality, not for star wars though.

    You're all far too pessimistic

    The biggest benefit of all this is that George Lucas is no longer involved in Star Wars. The longer it's gone on, the more it's become apparent that the original film was a fluke - I mean, have you ever seen the early drafts with Luke Starkiller in? Empire was the best film and that was directed by Irvin Kershner, not Lucas, and then Episode VI started the slow decline into marketing when he realised what a cash cow it was.

    The special editions almost without exception took away from the magic and the mythos, and the prequel trilogy... well, I just wish he'd had someone near him brave enough to say No on occasion.

    So more Star Wars, but less Lucas? Sounds perfect to me. He was a great producer, undoubtedly, but as a writer and a director, well, lets just remember the Anakin "romance" scenes in Episode 2.

    Also, Avengers Assemble was amazing so I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. They might even get Joss Whedon on board for the new trilogy - that'd be something...

    Am I the only one who liked the new trilogy? (well excepting the annoying (on too many levels) episode 1). For my money I'd love to see Timothy Zane's Thrawn trilogy on the big screen. I'd be happy with new actors in old parts (Dr Who and Bond have gotten away with it for years), I think the stories more important than who plays the roles.

    That said, if they could get some one as good as CGI as WETA (Gollum, Lord of the Rings) then maybe a Final Fantasy-esque trilogy with the original actors voicing the parts would be a win-win? Having seen Monsters Inc (the fur on Sully (have I got the right character?)) Pixar might just have the chops to pull it off without it looking as bad as Avatar.

    thrawn trilogy probably would make a good movie yes. As to actors to a point if they use different ones so be it. Might be interesting to see what pixar could do with it they do good technical work but always make sure there is a good story there

    More news:

    'Stand-alone' Star Wars films planned
    BBC News - 'Stand-alone' Star Wars films planned

    Groan, not another "Caravan of Courage".

    Although I had a friend who was really into Star Wars back in the day and he had loads of the novels, such as "Han Solo's Revenge", which was supposed to be pretty good. In fact the original "New Hope" book is fairly decent and covers more about Luke before he meets Kenobi.

    If you read the article, though, it's Lawrence Kasdan on board for the stand-alones - i.e. the guy what wrote Empire Strikes Back.

    Every piece of news that comes out about these films has me conflicted:
    * Disney have bought LucasFilm. Cash-ins ahoy! Except Star Wars has always been that way, and the Marvel films have still been brilliant since Disney bought them.
    * JJ Abrams directing. Star Trek was a great SF spectacle film, that style would work well for SW (with less lens flare). But Cloverfield was iffy and Lost ended horribly...
    * Standalone films: cash in. Kasdan writing: but good films?

    I'm still at "cautiously optimistic" for now, then, but some out-and-out good news would be nice.

    I must say I'm 'midly optimistic' about these. Being an unashamed Star Wars fan I've always wanted to see the Thrawn trilogy be turned into 7, 8 & 9 but new it was unlikely.

    I'd like to see a Luke film maybe taken from one of the later novels too.

    I understand that though unlikely to happen we will probably get new stories with some basis in the current generation of novels similar to recent comic book adaptations.

    Roll on the first JJ Abrams Lightsabre Duel though!
