Well, three years to go to the last Star
Wars movie. If Lucas wants to make more
later on, he'll probably have to settle on a
story that doesn't involve Anakin Skywalker.
While it would probably be a commercial hit
just like all the other Star Wars films,
would it still be considered Star Wars?

Lucas may not make another SW movie

These are the sad words of Steven Spielberg

script for Ep III is close to complete, and
full blown production is starting a year
from now. All David Prowse wants is a chance
to reprise the role he invented.
people at Lucasfilm have stated a few times
