ln0001 star wars New Star Wars Movie on the Way? [Updated]

[UPDATE: Well THAT was fast - Thomas Dolby has clarified his statement on his blog, quashing this rumor. Still, makes for a good discussion topic.]

The Internet + Hot Topic + Vague Rumors = Big News!!!  While the following isn’t exactly a formal Star Wars press release, it does get the old gears turning in the mind.  /Film and AICN are to be credited with the troublemaking of pointing it out.  Namely, Thomas Dolby (best known for his musical work incorporating electronic instruments into such songs as She Blinded Me with Science) blogged the following during a visit to the home of Paul Sebastien of LucasArts:

“Last night he was telling me a little about the forthcoming Star Wars-related TV show, movie and online games—very cool indeed.”

More Dolby talk and piercing analysis after the jump.

Star Wars-related.  Huh.  He could’ve said, “the new Star Wars film”, but he didn’t.  Star Wars-related sounds like a movie about the factory where R2D2 was made.  Considering the scope of all six films, we’ve now seen Anakin’s innocence, rise, temptation, fall and demise (it could’ve been soooooo good).  Doesn’t sound like there’s much left there.  Still, any film with the franchise name attached (new characters or old) will be a big deal.  As far as the TV show, movie and online games part, makes sense that the folks over at LucasArts aren’t just throwing darts at a board with pics of the Twilight stars on it.  Why are we trusting this man?  Let’s look back at his blog for signs of credibility:

“I could have done without the last three SW movies.”

Seems credible to me.  Who knows where this will lead, but I for one am interested.  Currently, USA is running Star Wars: The Clone Wars, a 3D CGI-animated series, created by Lucas and centered around the Grand Army of The Republic fighting the New Droid Army of the Separatists.  When I originally heard about the last three films, and the intention of making the villain the lead, showing his well-intentioned starting point and his giving in to evil, I was thrilled.  The premise is exciting enough that I’d say Episodes I, II and III are the perfect candidates for a full reboot (although I certainly doubt that’s what Dolby was talking about).

No word on when a movie would be released, but USA’s airing the next episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Friday, January 1st.

Would you rather see a totally new spin-off from the franchise or a retelling of the first three parts?

  1. One day H*** will freeze over too. The games are one of the outlets he allows change, he’s said this. It has no bearing on the films. It’s over as long as George is in control. Pray his kids have a change of heart. Hopefully I’ll be dead…

  2. the darth bane series with quentin tarentino directing

  3. what about one based on Karen Traviss's “Republic Commando”series? books were awesome, and the characters were really well-developed

    issues as well..

  7. A label maker can label all of your Christmas boxes so that you don’t have to go through every Christmas box to find that special ornament you are
    looking for. You can make labels with all the ornaments and lights that you have in each Christmas box.
    Or you can label one box for ornaments and one box for the Christmas lights.

    For better removal of the remaining particles and vinegar traces, fill the coffee
    maker with water and run again for one brewing process.
    Allow it to cool down for about 15 minutes and drain water from the pot.
    Repeat the process of brewing with water for another 2-3 times.
    With this step, you will have completed coffee maker cleaning with vinegar.

    Literal Bears I’m Jealous Of is named to be the best entertaining website of all time.
    This website was started as banner maker Bears
    I’m Jealous Of which was totally dedicated to hairy men.
    The website is later turned into Literal Bears I’m Jealous Of with the aim to commemorate
    all great bears in literature.

    Color: Color plays an effective part in the success of the banner.
    Bright color effects easily catch the attention of the eyes.
    The foreground color of font and illustration should contrast
    well with the background color. Color should bring freshness, creativity in your ad.
    The color of the banner will also depend on the niche for which it is created.

    From the Ban Deodorant website FAQ’s page, I guess that the only time anyone would actually
    want to ban deodorant is if they were doing so in lieu of an antiperspirant.
    According to Ban Deodorant, “Deodorants ONLY help to prevent odor while antiperspirants help prevent BOTH wetness and odor.” Ban makes both antiperspirants and deodorants so I guess
    their contributions are good enough. Still if you are on Facebook and
    you see the banner advertisement decrying “Ban Deodorant;” you’ll know not to be too taken aback.

    This coffee maker doesn’t really suitable at the office situation,
    but as an antique display for you office space it surely
    fits. I never suggest this coffee maker as office
    equipment, too beautiful, too fragile, too expensive and
    too tricky to use.
