Get out the pillars of salt, cause you're going to need more than a grain for this news

Next week's Forcecast should be interesting to listen to.

I saw the headline at, read a related article at, but the internets have yet to allow me to read the article at fan-site that says GL is planning on doing... (drum-roll, please)... episodes 10, 11, & 12, which, if I read the Wired article right, will have nothing to do with the Skywalker Family. The well-connected "source" apparently told iesb that this "planning" that GL is doing is not related to the live-action show Lucasfilm is working on. Again, this is still second-hand (or third), but the "new" films will come out 2 years after the originals are released in 3D, which could be around at my guess (one, two, six...) nine or ten years from now.

Now, I know what you're thinking, why is this news and why is anyone taking this seriously? I have no clue, but apparently all the above sources are taking it at least a tad seriously, so....

Yeah, any fan with half a clue will realize that this isn't happening. One: the films are about the Skywalkers, so if George is going to expand, he's going to continue with that story, and he has constantly denied that ever happening. Two: the live-action series is currently on hold because they have yet to figure out a good way to finance it. Even if the 3D versions do enormous money, is George really going to finance a TV series and a new trilogy of films?

I don't see it happening. Do I want it to happen? Well... I'm 95% sure I don't, but there's always that 5% of me that shouts "Gimme, gimme!" and sometimes even that voice can admit when it has had enough.

George, you put up a stopping point at the end of Return of the Jedi, so there's really no need for you to go beyond. Let the EU mess with the future of the galaxy far, far away.

So... how 'bout last night's episode of The Clone Wars? Pretty cool, huh?
