George Lucas is supposedly scheming future Star Wars movies at his top-secret Skywalker Ranch, reports IESB, who claims this could be more than just a rumor.
IESB is reporting that fans can expect the new trilogy after the entire saga is released in 3D which is expected to be complete around 2015 or 2016. Their source also claims the movies will not be prequels, but 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.
Wired chimed in with a quote from Lucasfilm spokesman Josh Kushins:
“This is, of course, is completely false,” Lucasfilm spokesman Josh Kushins wrote to Wired. “George Lucas has plenty of projects to keep him busy right now – including plenty of Star Wars projects – but there are no new Star Wars feature films planned.”
New films or not, the live action Star Wars television series is currently in development, already has over 50 scripts ready to go and plenty of pre-production time and money spent on artwork and storyboards. Once that show goes into production, Lucasfilm hopes to be able to produce at least 100 episodes since that is the threshold for syndication in the United States.
Only time will tell about the reality of a new trilogy, but we got to ask, does the idea of a new Star Wars trilogy get you excited?
