    Default New 3D Star Wars Rumor

    It's a rumor, so take it for what it's worth. :emperor

    Jim here. Here is a strong rumor that should whet your appetites! (or sour them if you have had too much of the franchise). I have been hearing rumblings... extremely quiet at first, but now heating up significantly and from a trusted source - that George Lucas is preparing to unleash another STAR WARS trilogy upon us, this time in stereoscopic 3D. This is NOT the TV series, these are brand spankin' new 3D STAR WARS movies.

    Yes, the pending 2D to 3D conversions of his six existing STAR WARS properties are still a go as 3D theaters are approaching 3000 (5000 is the number Lucas wants). No word on when this work will be completed.

    But here is the shocker: Lucas will be producing and NOT directing these new episodes apparently! Could Steven Spielberg be tapped to direct a STAR WARS movie after all? Yes according to a trusted source of mine! Further, Francis Ford Coppola was mentioned too as a possible director for a future film!

    A lot depends on the success of AVATAR this winter - if it takes off like everyone is expecting it to, then you will most likely see three additional STAR WARS movies added.

    What an interesting competitive box office landscape that would make over the next 6 to 10 years! James Cameron's AVATAR world vs. George Lucas' STAR WARS world. I could see Lucas getting a little jealous over a successful launch of AVATAR - jealous because it is a fully articulated universe, like his. And if he doesn't act on it - his franchise may well be relegated to a back seat as potentially the records will start falling to Pandora. Heck STAR WARS is still not 3D yet and what better way to try to maintain a lock on bragging rights than to launch into three more in native stereoscopic 3D.

    How seriously should you consider these rumors? Well it is coming from a source that SHOULD KNOW. This source is absolutely connected. So odds are it is seriously being talked about at Lucasfilm. Right now. Will it happen? AVATAR will have to hit and hit big and then all the stars have to align properly - all I can do is pass on the info.

    Personally I WANT this to happen dearly. I REALLY want to see what the STAR WARS universe looks like in Spielberg's hands *AND* in stereoscopic 3D. You would too, wouldn't you? :-)

    Well....you know that Lucas isn't going to the Skywalker well anymore if he sticks to his comments and I seriously doubt he'll use anything written/established by other entities as part of his films completely so it should be interesting to see if he will write a set of new films that can hold their weight.

    yeah, would these be the long awaited 7-9 or a totally unrelated trilogy? My hopes are for mix of both.

    How freaking awesome would be something more in the treatment of The Fellowship of the Ring where the current events are Episode 7-9 but the films flash back and interpolate Old Republic stuff for example.

    Similar to how the SEs were used to test the waters for the prequels they really need to send out the OT in 3D and see how they fare.

    In any event, I'm willing to spend another 20+ years of my life focused on Star Wars...

    That would be awesome, but my breath isn't being held.

    Chances are they would probably be something like the Clone Wars with Anakin and Obi Wan--skewed for a younger audience and all CG. I can't imagine Lucas investing the time and energy into 3 more full blown motion pictures even if he's not directing.

    What ever happened to that crazy "Episode 0" rumor revolving around Yoda, some 88 years before TPM?

    that basically also shoots down the idea of the OT in 3D which based on years of reports we know Lucas wants to do....so you can't take LFLs word either.
