Well color me pink and call me Leia.
Late last week I posted up a story concerning the possibilities of a new Star Wars trilogy in the works. After many rebukes and even a mention by Harry Knowles of AICN, I got to thinking “maybe I posted prematurely”. Today I find out in fact, that I did.
Lucasfilm spokesman, Josh Kushins had this to say to Wired magazine concerning the rumor: “This is, of course, completely false. George Lucas has plenty of projects to keep him busy right now — including plenty of Star Wars projects — but there are no new Star Wars feature films planned.”
Okay, I was fooled…or was I? Lets take a look at what the bearded guru of all things Star Wars (Harry Knowles) has to say on the matter.
“Every source I have at Lucasfilm has continually stated that the plan is to do a third STAR WARS trilogy taking place after RETURN OF THE JEDI. But you have to realize – that talking about it, is going to make it miserable waiting for. It is DOWN THE ROAD. BUT between now and then, you’ll continue to hear people like Lucas, McCallum and Sansweet deny and call all such rumors as our right fabrications. That is standard Lucasfilm procedure. BECAUSE – until they’re ready to announce, it does not exist. SO – I suppose it does not exist, but it will.”
AHA! So what can we believe then? The spokesperson for Lucasfilm or a bulbous pervert with a beard? You decide.
Editorial note: I was unaware of the fact that the source of my original story was very un-trust worthy. There are some people who believe that the website in question posted the rumor as a means of generating traffic. It should be pointed out that several years ago the site was rife with rumors generated no where else, that Tom Welling would be playing Superman on the big screen. Even when the producers of Smallville refuted the claim. It SEEMED that those rumors, too, were geared towards increasing traffic. Being a small pop culture website, we try an give you the best news possible. So if these rumors turn out to be false, then you have my apology.
