One thing to consider is that SW will probably be the surest bet and most hyped movie of the year. The HP franchise will probably be in trouble, LOTR will be out of the picture, SM 2 is due in 2004. Unless another major franchise is established between now and then, EP3 will be the biggest movie event of the year by far. Indy 4 will probably be its major competitor as far as hype goes. IMHO, all Lucas needs to change for EP3 is his marketing strategy. AOTC's was terrible!
