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.” (more…)

The above is a deleted scene from Return of the Jedi that will be put back in for the new Blu-ray release, both of which were announced at Star Wars Celebration V. The official press release says:

“The Star Wars saga will at long last be released in a high-definition home video format as all six movies come to Blu-Ray in a Box Set in Fall 2011…The set will feature all six live-action Star Wars feature films, with the highest picture and audio quality, along with extensive special features.”

The embedded video is obviously some random dude videotaping it off the screen so the quality isn’t very good, but you get the idea.  It would have been the first shot of Luke in Return of the Jedi, rather than when we see him walk into Jabba’s palace.  Personally, I can see why they deleted it, but it’s still very cool to watch.  Even as a kid I thought it was weird that so many people would reference that he built a new lightsaber but they never actually showed it being built.  It was kind of mysterious like maybe it’s really hard to make one. But apparently judging from this video all you need is a couple minutes and some tweasers…oh well. Enjoy!
