IESB is “reporting” that a new Star Wars trilogy is in the works:

“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. 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.”

But according to Wired, a Lucafilm spokesman said to them via e-mail:

“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.”

BUT then again, IESB predicted this and has been right about a lot of their rumours in the past:

“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.”

In any case, I would love to see it happen cause I mean they’ve already made the prequels. All of the integrity the Star Wars franchise had was sold off a long time ago so what’s the worst that could happen?

Tell us what you think in the comments!

    I would love this if only to see most -if not all- of the post-ROTJ EU negated. Especially the more recent stuff.

    Aside from the fact that the prequels generated nearly $3 billion at the box office world wide, it is inevitable that another trilogy is down the road and the suggestion that Lucas as ‘plenty of other projects to work on’ is smoke and mirrors. Along with hype and an expensive ad campaign, the next best marketing ploy is to build a slow simmer in the blogosphere and fan sites, to capitalize on that stew and when it finally becomes time to announce the next batch of whatevers the fans and general enthusiasts will be in such a frenzy that I guarantee opening weekend records at the box office. Time will tell. But will less-obsessed film enthusiasts care? Hmmmm.
