I sense a great disturbance in the force

Allow me to quote Hayden Christensen's Anakin Skywalker:


OK, now that that is out of my system, allow me to report this rumor as quickly as I can so no one gets too freaked out.

George Lucas may be working on a prequel movie to his Star Wars prequels according to the Daily Telegraph.

Now, if the prequels were immeasurably worse than the original trilogy, how bad is this new potential movie going to be. Let me get my magic 8-ball.


"All signs point to AWFUL"

Unless a whole planet of Gungans gets blown up and Irvin Kershner returns to the director's seat, and maybe even if those things happen, this is going to potentially be a horrible, horrible movie.

As you've said in the post, the only way this could work is if Lucas lets a director do his own thing, with Lucas keeping a safe distance away from the script.

I've been reading these rumors, too, but mark me down as "skeptical." Lucas has seemed so adamant about not returning to the series since the prequels ended. Of course, he'll probably announce a new movie today and swear he never said he was finished with Star Wars. That's LucasHistory for ya.

Semaj: I still want to see a planet full of Gungans get "blowed up real good".

Jess: Well, the thing that has me scratching my head is the fact that he stated movie in one of those interviews and then denied it.

And I wonder what the significance of this is
