We reported this week that George Lucas
had an idea for a new Star Wars movie
. The scoop originated from Cinescape
, where we now find out the conversation apparently took place at a resort last year, so it's nothing new. What the director was actually asked was which period he thought would be more interesting for future of the Star Wars universe. Lucas's replied that, without question, the pre-prequel period would be more interesting - the story of the fall of the Sith lords and the rise of the Jedi, many years before Anikan was born. He added that Yoda would have a big part in such a story. So again there is no sign of commitment or to any indication of serious consideration. Lucas may have just been thinking out loud. The Cinescape report ended with a quote from Lucas: "Star Wars
will never end. My involvement may, but the story will go on."
