Ok here they are:
1.) When is Lucas going to start on Episode 3?
2.) Is there a date or year when it will be in theaters?
3.) How many years after Episode 2?

And I'll post more if I think of any.

He has already started. He has shot one scene, and dialogue of James Earl Jones for Vader. He has also started writing the script. Filming should begin about early next year.

May 2005 is all we know so far. An exact date will be released nearer the time.

It will be set about 1 or 2 (maybe 3) years after AOTC. it wont be any more than 3 years.

Hope this has helped.

I keep hearing that it's going to be 4 years after Episode 2. But I could be wrong.

It is officially 4 years after AOTC.

originally it was set 20 years before A New Hope which would make it 2 years after AOTC, but if you recall that in ANH Luke & Leia are 18 this doesnt work out correctly (unless padme is preggers for 2 years!) so 4 years after would make more sense

I think the release date is:
May 25th 2005 - the same day that ANH came out (in a different year of course! :) )

i bet the amount of time lapse btwn AOC and epIII will keep expanding... i see it as at least five years time lapse, or maybe we will see more time go by in the movie itself.

I heard that there was already 1 scene shot. The rumor I heard was that during the filming of ATOC, the filmed a scene where Obi-Wan was carrying a small bundle to the Lars Homestead. The reasoning behind it was because they didn't want to go back to Tunsia to film just 1 scene. That puts ANH about 18 years after Episode 3, right. I guess we won't see Padme running around pregnant much either, thank goodness.

Actually Natalie said she would be with child in the next film.
