Update On The New STARS WARS Trilogy: What To Believe And What Not To

Guys - my top source in Lucasfilm just updated me on just what holds water with the IESB claims (because some is different from our reports) and what DOESN'T hold water. In other words, what should we be anticipating with this new trilogy??

Quote - IESB: "What do we know? First of all, these new film will have nothing to do with the live action television series currently in development. That show already has over 50 scripts ready to go and plenty of pre-production time and money has been 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."

This is true, the pictures will have little to nothing to do with the TV show, as it stands right now! Lots and lots of money has been spent creating what I am sure will be a TV classic. It will run 100 episodes at least.

Quote - IESB: " can expect the new trilogy after the entire saga is released in 3D which is expected to be complete around 2015 or 2016."

Again accurate.

Quote - IESB: "Uncle George's modus operandi has not changed, the plan is that he will self finance the new trilogy after he rakes in an expected $500 - $750 million dollars with the re-release of the entire Star Wars Saga in 3D and on Blu-Ray."

Speculation NOT journalism.

Quote - IESB: "The ideal plan, according to our spy at Skywalker Ranch, is to be able to release a new Star Wars film within 24 months after the release of the last re-re-release (is that right?) of Return of the Jedi 3D."

There is a 100 episode TV series to be completed, nothing will move forward on the a new trilogy until after this show is all but done. PERIOD! As well as the conversions this is going to take time, so do not expect anything for quite some time. The dates are not set and it is all speculation as to when where and what the timeframe will be, what I can tell you is that it will not be until after the TV show is all but done.

It will be 3D (obviously).

Quote - IESB:
"Too early for story details but one thing that our source is certain about, they will not be prequels but instead 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 or possibly even further out in the Star Wars timeline. And by giving space in the timeline, possibly even as far as 100 years or 1,000 years in the Star Wars universe future, Lucas avoids having to make these stories "fit in" with what the previous stories have told."

This is where I call out the article from IESB as fabrication. "1000 years into the STARWARS future?" While Lucas is a clever business man he is not a complete fool, even if many think he is. Bottom line, this is bullsh*t, why ? Well because it "IS" episodes 7 - 9 we are talking about here, (IESB is wrong). 10, 11, and 12 ? Where the hell does that come from ?

Quote - IESB: "According to our sources, the most likely scenario for the films is that they will exist in the same universe but will not have anything to do with the Skywalker Clan. That story has been told, that starship has sailed."

Do I really have to comment on why this is wrong? Again speculation not journalism. Where as I am the first to speculate, I am helped by informed opinion and also knowledge of what I speak of. IESB is obviously not, and neither is THEIR source.

Quote - IESB: "What has caused this sudden change of heart for Uncle George? Well, besides the obvious possible billions that a new Star Wars trilogy will take in, our source tells us that George has gotten motivated with the success the Clone Wars animated series, the video games and also with the success of Avatar."

Partially true, AVATAR is a big reason for this, however, may I point out this was always the plan, and will continue to be the plan, even if George is not around in body to achieve it himself! Episodes 7 - 9 complete the story arc.

Quote - IESB: "Can we expect Lucasfilm to confirm our story? Have they ever? Nope, I am sure that they will spin this or completely deny the story, but we will stand 100% behind our source."

No, never.
However, I suggest they not only stand behind THEIR source, but while standing behind the source they start to tiptoe in another direction. Should this source exist that is. Which I doubt.

Remember guys, here is what you need to keep in mind:
1. This is a future project, not tomorrow.
2. Discussions are ongoing.
3. The Skywalker's will be the focus, in keeping with the arc.
4. These will be the final 3 episodes of the saga.
5. Lucas will be producing.
6. As it stands now the plan is for Lucas to NOT direct.

More when I get it. Which may be awhile now that IESB has stirred up the hornet's nest with a fake story. Lucasfilm will be like Fort Knox. Thanks alot.
