• George Lucas says there will 'never' be a new 'Star Wars'

      Are you a "Star Wars" fan who still holds out hope that Episodes VII, VIII and IX will someday hit theater screens? Don't count on it.




      On Wednesday, George Lucas blasted away any chance of ever seeing a new birth of the “Star Wars” franchise whenTMZ briefly caught him leaving a Hollywood restaurant.


      Asked when the newest installment of “Star Wars” would be, Lucas was blunt: “Never,” he said, adding "I'm retired."

        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.

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

        It just so happens that I am half German. 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.

      Definitely! But I'm going to take my time and enjoy it. Part of the fun of prop collecting is acquiring the pieces.

      Dammit, Tycho, I'm gonna be thinking about that now until next January!

      But is it add-on armor or a complete 1-piece Transformer?

      I'd prefer the latter.

      Whoever is swearing has to be from the Empire side. The Rebel Alliance will not use such language.
