So the story is already written then? George Lucas already wrote it right?
I'm guessing it won't be the same characters. Anyone know who the main character is?
magazine published in late 1980, Lucas described how the expansive scope of Star Wars
had started with an overlong screenplay: "So, I took the screenplay and divided it into three stories, and rewrote the first one. As I was writing, I came up with some ideas for a film about robots, with no humans in it. When I got to working on the Wookiee, I thought of a film just about Wookiees, nothing else. So, for a time, I had a couple of odd movies with just those characters. Then, I had the other two films, which were essentially split into three parts each, two trilogies. When the smoke cleared, I said, 'This is really great. I'll do another trilogy that takes place after this.' I had three trilogies of nine films
, and then another couple of odd films. Essentially, there were twelve films." He then added that he had "eliminated the odd movies, because they really don't have anything to do with the Star Wars saga. ... I'm just going to keep it pure. It's a nine-part saga that has a beginning, a middle and an end. It progresses over a period of about fifty or sixty years with about twenty years between trilogies
, each trilogy taking about six or seven years."
In this interview, Lucas also stated that he had "titles and ten-page story outlines for each of" the nine episodes"
yeah, it kind of sounds like lucas might have an idea or two on a main character...
as to the awful episodes 1, 2 and 3... taken by themselves i think they may have been good, popular movies (except episode 1 which was terribad) but being held up to the original star wars trilogy kind of doomed it from the start. im excited that i'm going to see the end of the story - and good or bad (i hope really really good) its a better option than lucas dying without the movies being made... i just hope he learned his lessons from episodes 1 2 and 3.
