this could be very true, but i'm a little scared it might not happen that way.

if it doesn't happen, the price of those special editions will probably skyrocket.

Lucas Planning New Star Wars DVD
Source: The Associated Press

In an Associated Press reports on Hasbro's earnings, it states that "Star Wars" will remain a force to be reckoned with:

Looking ahead, Verrecchia said he expected Star Wars to continue to be a strong performer with Lucas planning a video release for this year's 30th anniversary, a Star Wars animated TV show next year and a live-action Star Wars TV show in 2009.

"He and his studio have a lot going on over the next several years to support the franchise," Verrecchia said.

George Lucas: Empire Was the Worst Star Wars Film!
Source: Cinematical

On Wednesday of this week, entertainment blogger David Poland threw up a rather perfunctory account of the Publicist's Guild luncheon: "I kinda like this particular high-school event. There is no pressure on me to report. I am comfortable knowing that this is a group that will never nominate me for their journalistic award." But pressure or no, he did report one item of interest, two days late. Yesterday afternoon, Poland tossed in an update on the lunch that he forgot to dole out originally: "George Lucas, giving the award to Sid Ganis, who was the in-house publicist on Star Wars: Episode Five - The Empire Strikes Back, said, 'Sid is the reason why The Empire Strikes Back is always written about as the best of the films, when it actually was the worst one.'"

George Lucas: Empire Was the Worst Star Wars Film!
i'm so glad i was never emotionally invested in these films any more than i am in Back to the Future, maybe less. cos these days it's very hard to be a star wars fan and hold your head high,. it's like being a simpsons fan, but much worse, it's like if all the simpsons writers came out and said "seasons 3 to 7 were actually the worst years of the series, the new ones are the best, WE BELIEVE THIS." which is not far from the truth really since only the voice talent think the new ones are truly bad.

the modern George Lucas is like having a parent who constantly gives bad advice to his grown up kids. you hav to remember that they raised you well, but now they're just useless. George Lucas is his own R. Lee Ermey.
under the paving stones.

Further solidifying that Lucas has no idea what he's doing anymore.

Episode III was pretty good.
It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

George Lucas was definitely joking the other day, I've been told, when he said The Empire Strikes Back was the "worst" Star Wars film, etc. "Say what you will about Lucas, his personality, his qualities as a filmmaker or lack thereof," says a person who attended the Publicist Guild luncheon in question. "But on that day, in that speech, he was 100% making a joke.

"He opened his speech -- on a day filled with teleprompters -- by saying that he never used a script when making a speech, something that drove his publicists crazy. (He's not exactly a great public speaker, either, so perhaps he should change that habit.) At any rate, he spoke for about five minutes in a seemingly off-the-cuff manner, and made several 'jokes.' Others can judge whether or not he was actually funny, but yeah, he was joking."

On Monday, April 23 2007, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences screened Star Wars as part of their Great to Be Nominated series. Before the start of the show, they showed this special clip as a message of warning to members in the audience:

I doubt it. But given their limited run and their 'BargainBin' status, it could mean the letterbox backlash worked.

NASA's Star Wars Stunt
Agency to send Luke's lightsaber into space.

In honor of the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, NASA will launch Luke Skywalker's original Jedi lightsaber into space along with the crew of the space shuttle Discovery. The launch is slated for October.

Chewbacca will officially hand the lightsaber over to NASA's Space Center Houston during a ceremony at the Oakland International Airport. The ceremony will include characters from a galaxy far, far away including Boba Fett, Jango Fett and X-Wing pilots, Jedi, and Stormtroopers.

This will be followed by a spectacular departure aboard a Southwest Airlines flight as Chewbacca and his galactic friends help push back the airplane on the tarmac.

Once the flight lands in Houston, Stormtroopers will help escort the lightsaber off the plane as R2-D2 and other famous Star Wars characters kick-off the second half of the celebration at Gate 47 in William P. Hobby Airport.

The fanfare will conclude outside baggage claim where the lightsaber will be transported by a caravan of Hummers with an official City of Webster police escort to NASA's Space Center Houston where it will be secured inside the lunar vault.

i'm guessing they'll be released in blu-ray/hd-dvd format. i remember george lucas stalled the release of the original trilogy on dvd way back in 1999 (i think). he went on about a format called blu-ray. at that time blu-ray didn't even exist and was probably going through development hell. he was also prepping the other star movies in the new trilogy. i don't know why i'm telling you, probably to make me look smarter or something. but in this case, maybe there will be maxed blu-ray dvd's of the original trilogy including both the untouched and the added special effects version.

sorry if i'm repeating things that maybe is mentioned in this thread.
