I am not sure if this topic has been covered elsewhere, so if it has I apologize for starting another thread... Thinking about George Lucas's decision to make the prequel trilogy and if we are to believe it, he already had the story line for the sequels in place, then if as we already suspect he has managed to get the original cast back together, why did he not decide to make the sequels first when they were younger and most likely fitter? He was obviously aware of the ages of the original cast and therefore the only sensible reason I can see for deciding not to make the sequels first is that he must have considered that he may never get the original cast together again or that the story was not strong enough. I know George has never been completely satisfied with the Star Wars movies....hence the amount of changes and the special editions etc. With this in mind, I wonder just how different the film we will see on the screen will be from whatever was in his mind from his original story line ideas. The reality is we will probably never know exactly what his original ideas and concepts are, but in the way that original concept ideas have become more known over the years about the original movies, I wonder what will appear over the years after the new movies have been and gone!
