    Or maybe he's making Red Tails 2: Red Tailsier?

    Michael Arndt is not Bruce Vilanch. As long as that doesn't change, I'm pretty sure we'll be fine. ;)

    I absolutely do not believe that GL deliberately set things up for an ST when writing the PT, but he may have been setting things up for an Old Republic movie.

    Me neither, I think he was fairly certain that ROTS would be the last SW movie, ever, but being the tinkerer that he is, he did insert the "Legend of Darth Plagueis" in ROTS and put Hayden in ROTJ which could be explored further if he ever changed his opinion (which he does quite often as seen by his endless adjusting of the OT")

    It's not bitter, it's an opinion many genuinely feel, just as many like yourself feel differently.

    Good article, and I agree with the general gist - GL is great at story and at his best when others are helping him execute his vision to its maximum potential. GL coming up with the story and helping out where needed and a talented new generation (with Kasdan coming back) taking his vision forwards is the best possible combo for me.

    I think it's probably more likely he had the ST in mind when penning the prequels, but to what extent is more open to debate.

    I'm beginning to agree. Even if the contract is no longer valid, there has to be a reason why Lucas had Peter Mayhew sign on for three other films when he signed on for Episode III. What else could it be other than the ST?

    His contract for Episode III included three other possible films.

    Hmm... interesting. I do think it was in the back of his mind that there could be more films after the prequels. I just don't think he was entirely sure if it though.

    I don't know. Star Wars fans don't have a good track record regarding making assumptions.

    I think we're just going to have to wait for J.H. Rinzler's "The Making of Star Wars: Episode VII: Jedi Into Darkness" to be released on October 1, 2045.

    "I wrote in my will not to make an ST" GL said in 2008, so he clearly was very anti-ST in 2008.

    or maybe he was deflecting, LFL would have gained a monstrous amount of attention if people knew an ST was in the works, Mark, Carrie, and Harrison would be bombarded with ST questions, and imagine what it would have been like for fans, if we knew, we had to wait till 2015 for the ST.

    He could have easily said, "I have no way of knowing what will happen after I die, but I have no plans to make an ST." I'm under the impression that he hadn't found someone he trusted to make an ST.

    I take it as a code word for JJ taking another shot at our beloved PT.

    The new movies will follow a new generation of heroes just like the OT did compared to the PT. This should not be surprising. The story arc will be the same however. This new generation of Skywalkers or Solos will have the toughest test I think. May need some help from daddy or dead grandpa, but maybe not.

    I don't trust anything George says. He's gone back on pretty much everything he's procraimed since 1979.

    We shouldn't take what Jett says about the ST, the interviewer asked what Jett would have wanted in the ST.
    Plus he wouldn't spoil JJ, and his father's movie, not if he wants to work behind the scenes.
    Otherwise they'd think he would leak whar he hears, and sees.
