I'll never understand why people keep bringing this topic up to him. Were they honestly surprised by him giving the same answer he's been giving for years - which has NOTHING to do with Red Tails, or anything else?

Why is this a story? We've know for years their won't be a episodes 7 , 8 and 9. And I don't like TMZ either. Just leave GL alone.

If you read the Making of ANH and ESB, you'll see it's clear that children of the OT were told in no uncertain terms that there would be 9 and even 12 movies in the saga, so they have an expectation and a not-so-new hope. I've never been among them even when I was a kid, but learning how much money Lucas put into ESB as a foundation for a much greater series of movies - the cost of the ESB Falcon exterior was much higher than it'd have to be because they designed it to be broken down and stored so they could pull it out and put it in movie after movie, only to have it not appear but for a moment in ROTJ - makes me wonder if Lucas simply ran out of ideas once the original Star Wars was complete (the OT is really just ANH's full story that he wrote too long for a single film).

I was always under the impression there were 9 movies. I vaguely remember a commercial for Entertainment Tonight in the 80's that showed a scene where Luke was thrown into an oven.

A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, The Clone Wars, Caravan of Courage, and The Battle for Endor. Yep, 9 films total.

Yep, 9 films total.Loosely defining "movies" with those last 2, unless you're German. :p Gonna count the LEGO SW blu-ray movie too?

It just so happens that I am half German. :p I wasn't planning on counting LEGO SW. I only counted the side story theatrical/television movies that could be considered in continuity with the main 6 "trilogy" movies' universe.

He lied. He lied to us.

This bickering is pointless. In our moment of triumph?

"They didn't use my ideas, they went a different way."

"They didn't use my ideas, they went a different way."Therefore, this is new. A new Star Wars. Insert Ben Kenobi's "I'm getting too old for this sort of thing" line. I think Lucas felt HE wouldn't do it, and if it wasn't the person who started it, no one else should. But with four+ billion dollars...

Lucas in that interview specifically said he wouldn't do it and he wouldn't let someone else do it, he wouldn't sell it to let them do it. Then he got an offer for $4 billion and realized his life would be better without shepherding Star Wars into his grave.
