    And then there should be a wild, unannounced SW tv series that Lucas will spearhead.

    Not likely, but you never know- for example, a near-death experience causes an epiphany for the need to return to SW before the end of life....

    Not wishing a near-death experience on him, just saying remote chances are remote, not impossible.

    A trilogy is far more unlikely than a one-off. A one-off would not go against the reason George quit SW- because another trilogy was going to take several years of his life when he has other things to do. So there is that.

    No, I don't believe the rumor going around about him directing. Wishful thinking.

    Lucas could be around well into his 90s. Look at Stan Lee being around into his 90s, for example. We have 14 more years until Lucas hits the 90-year milestone. In that 14 years, many things can happen and lots can change. That is why I don't hesitate in speculating on the potential of a new Lucas SW trilogy.

    Except the guy wasn’t just put on this earth to make us SW content. He’s got a new family now and he’s got an entire museum he’s working on. I doubt he wants to devote his time to another trilogy, when he already decided he didn’t want to when he was younger. The best we can hope for is that they publish his ST ideas eventually.

    Indeed a lot can change. Bands that no one ever believed would get back together have, you never know.

    Plus- After Lucas passes on, he can come back from the Netherworld to make more SW productions.;)

    I believed so too before he kept showing up to the Mandalorian set.

    No one else is in his head. Impossible to say definitely one way or another.

    This. He visited the Rogue One and Solo sets too and gave some ideas that they used. That will in all likelihood be the extent of his involvement in the franchise. He’s retired.

    Honestly, that amount of involvement is more than I expected, and I'm thrilled that we still get a little input from GL in the new productions - even if he just contributes tiny details.
    But I'm not expecting anything more.

    When George sits for his weekly lunch of mall food court Chinese food you just know he is meditating on Star Wars canon.

    Expecting? I'm not either.

    But his mentee (Filoni) being heavily involved in his creation, its clearly a never say never situation. The narrative of George Lucas' name with Star Wars has changed significantly as the ST went on. It went from Disney/LFL basically mocking his work, to pushing decisions fans didn't like on him to Iger admitting they did GL wrong and now he's constantly talked about in high praises by execs publicly.

    Things change.

    This is why Lucas has visited the set of The Mandalorian... and who can blame him?

    There will 100% be something which is "CREATED BY GEORGE LUCAS... and someone else who did most of the work" - Like those cheesy airport Novels. Whether it is any good - we'll have to see - but they can't blame them for doing such a thing.

    Because it is impossible for life to change drastically? Thanks but no thanks. People told me to give up on the GnR reunion for years, they reunited. People told me Jim Plunkett could never come back, he won 2 super bowls.

    I will be more convinced if his wife posts on here and tells everyone to give it up, but even that is not 100%. It is unlikely, but I have yet to see anyone with authority post that it is impossible, so I'll hang with my own perspective.

    Definitive statements that are based on the decisions of those we do not even know are not definitive. They are speculation. Repeating "it will never happen" doesn't somehow make you right. Everyone knows it isn't likely (again).

    Yes, no kidding.

    It ain’t happening. If it does I’ll immediately admit I was dead wrong and ban myself for two weeks. :p

    best case is Filoni and Faveru fullfilling GL whishes and for his his story ideas for stories past and before the OT. Like Underworld is now being used by Book of boba fett and Andor, what that started these streaming service will fullfill. Am sure we will see like godfather crime post OT, maybe a dark force user like Taloon that the remaining jedi must fight. Have her be Maul's secret apprentice. Filoni can go deep with the midi-chlorians and the whills that i am sure the father was one.

    Lucas won't come back because now he'd have to answer to Disney.

    Is that really the case though?
    Andor isn't coming from Favreau and Filoni, and is The Book of Boba Fett actually taking something from Underworld or is it merely making use of something that is vaguely similar?

    I wouldn't put it past them using ideas that originated from the development of Underworld in some form, but using bounty hunters or the criminal underworld in itself isn't necessarily using those exact story ideas. I mean, if vague similarities already count, then you could just do the same with the sequels, as there were still plenty of items in those that were taken from or developed out of the original ideas. Yet you probably won't find all that many people who would state that the ST went forward with Lucas' story ideas.

    That being said, with Underworld being set aside due to budget reasons, and the technology slowly allowing for movie-quality production values on a tv-show, maybe this is something that could indeed make some sort of comeback. Comparing numbers though, the costs of an episode of The Mandalorian still far exceeds what Lucas and McCallum had stated what an episode for Underworld should cost to make it feasible.

    Why would a businessman who ran a successful restaurant for 40 years sell it to retire, only to come back ten years after selling it to work for the person he sold it to? My mother sure hasn’t done it, and I'm sure Lucas wouldn't either.

    Folks think its crazy that a creator would want to take his creation for a spin again?

    [​IMG]

    I'm not saying its definitely happening or not. But far more implausible things have occurred (like having a trilogy of movies without a plan). All reports are F&F don't have to answer to anyone for what they do with their projects - I'm sure GL can get some kind of arrangement if he wanted it.

    This isn't the same Disney/LFL who was throwing dirt on him and his name after the ST essentially failed and they've been humbled.

    Hmmmm, yep! Two different Lucasfilms run by two different people indeed! Surely Favreau and Filoni aren't reporting to the woman that was up on that stage announcing their projects...

    That's easy to say. However, Lucas is still the creator of SW. [face_coffee]
