When it comes to long-running series, you really can't ever say “never.” Sure, George Lucas has categorically denied that there will ever be a new trilogy, but I remember a time when the prospects of a fourth INDIANA JONES, a future-war set TERMINATOR and a X-MEN movie seemed just as impossible.
IESB’s got a scoop that there’s another STAR WARS trilogy in the works, citing the 3D and Blu-Ray re-releases of the saga as a parallel to the Special Editions’ release in the 90s; a move that directly preceded the prequels's development. While there’s been enough talk of a sequel trilogy (starting from immediately after RETURN OF THE JEDI bowed in the 80s) for this to be “boy who cried wolf” situation, these guys’ track with Lucasfilm scoops is strong enough to take this a little more seriously.
I think it’s going to happen eventually. Somehow. Like I said, I remember walking out of REVENGE OF THE SITH and being a little taken back as the realization that I just saw "the last STAR WARS movie ever.” Sure, enough that CLONE WARS movie came out a couple years later, making me swallow that sentiment. The point is that this is a franchise that’s been successful in every medium it’s appeared in. The demand is obviously still there, so the material's going to be keep coming until thatdemand wanes. == TEASER ==
IESB thinks this’ll be set far ahead in the timeline and it’ll have nothing to do with the Skywalker clan. I really doubt that it will take anything from the storylines in that LEGACY comic that Dark Horse is doing. The prequels already contradicted a lot of the “past history” that was established in the Expanded Universe. Though, I suppose the questions arise.... have you maniacs been liking LEGACY? Would you want to see it become the basis for a third movie trilogy?
