Star Wars Episode VII: Fall of the Empire?
Star Wars 7 or Star Wars Episode 7, for those of you that are roman numerically challenged!
What exactly happened in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi? We discover that there are two remaining Jedi in the universe - Luke and Leia. Anakin has fulfilled his prophecy by bringing balance to the force (yes, it took him 6 movies to do so!). He did it by killing the Emperor. But is that the end of the Empire? There are thousands of star systems, and a complete command structure in place. With Emporer Palpatine and Vader gone, it will certainly be weakened, but I'm sure someone in the bureacracy will take over.
Ok, I'm not sure what to make of this one. For years now George Lucas has been saying that these 3 new Star Wars films will be the final ones ever made. Personally, I believe him. However, Cinescape posted the following quote from TheForce.Net that will have lots of Star Wars fans raising an eyebrow or two:
If this turns out to be legit STAR WARS fans will have a Brit magazine named Hotdog to thank for it, but here goes: according to the December 2003 issue of that magazine, Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew said that when he signed his contract to work in EPISODE III, there was a clause that he would be "required" to work in EPISODES VII, XIII and IX of the STAR WARS film series.
Maybe it's just standard contract wording. If I were Lucas, I'd certainly put that in if I there was the slighest possibility of filming the additional movies.
As if he's not already ridiculously rich, can he REALLY turn down the billions of additional dollars that would probably be generated by three more movies? I mean, Episode III made $150 million in 4 days.
