    I'd say hope for a taped message and be super happy if it's a live satellite feed. :)

    When I think about the possiblity of him being there though, I tend to think they would almost have to keep it as a secret surprise until he walked out onto stage at one of the presentations. Were it announced beforehand, it would be crazy for security trying to control the massive crowd, all of which would want to fit into the presentation's room which would not be big enough for us all.

    I agree with Obi-Dawn. The Flannelled One would be absolutely mobbed if he showed up. But we can still hope.

    Edit: He would also be able to only do a few shows and be hustled out the back entrance. Word of his presence would spread like wildfire.

    I sense that George has some bitterness towards Star Wars fans. Remember his comments in that Myth and Magic documentary, or whatever it was called? He seemed upset that fans din't like some of his changes. I just kind of doubt that he will be there.

    he will be so busy getting EP3 out the door he will not make it..

    (id rather have him send a tape and have him stay and make sure EP3 is done right, course what would a flight to indy for 1 hour then a flight back, in the same day to him,, this guy is on the forbus list after all)

    I think the idea of a live Satellite link is plausible. But I'm hoping for a bait and switch thing like they did on the show Survivor, where he talks to us via Satellite, then comes around the corner and voila he's there in person! I think I'd Poop myself....heh heh. Hmm, that reminds me, I better have a box of Depends for just such an occassion...ha ha

    Do I think he'll show in person, no, but it would be a GREAT gesture to the fans that he thought us important enough to be there, even if just one day or one hour!

    We'll probably have to settle for McCallum or Sansweet.

    If he decides to come, I think it would be in a private way. He would get mauled (no pun intended) and asked a billion questions. Tho I think it would be cool to ask him things I've always wanted to ask, but you know that Q&A would end up being a eight hour line stander, with speical tickets.

    he has been invited by Mary Franklin, but no one knows yet.

    this could be a surprise guest.

    Isn't GL just planning on re-re-releasing A New Hope? Or will be the whole frigging Saga? Now THAT would be awesome!! However, I thought he said that after Episode 3 is done then he is done.....wait a sec, there is money involved, nevermind ;) :D

    He said no more new star wars movies. The word on the street is that he is planning on re-re-releasing all six episodes in 3D, about a month apart starting sometime in 2007 my guess would be in chronological rather than released order (ep1,2,3,4,5,6).

    sadly, seems like I saw (a day or so ago) on the supershadow site that Lucas never goes to these (conventions/CIII) things..........supposedly he is in the know so, that sux...........I'll still be happy with him doing something live via satellite or a pre-recorded video for fans. Still, it would be a real treat if he came...........

    He'll be there when hell freezes over, there's no chance of him being there, just like there's no chance of Harrison Ford being there.
