Episode III - The End of Star Wars?
Don't expect any more "Star Wars" flicks after "Revenge of the Sith" — George Lucas says he's done...
13 September, 2004: Talking with MTV, George Lucas confirmed that the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith" will definitely be the last live-action film in the saga.
"This was never planned as a nine-episode work. The original 'Star Wars' was only three films, and that was what it was meant to be. After a lot of pondering and thought, I went back to do the back story, but that pretty much tells the story. Episode Six is the end. There isn't any more to it."
He also hinted that Episode III may be a PG-13 affair - "All the good guys die, and you know, it's pretty dark. It's pretty intense. I'm not sure this one is going to end up a PG like the others were".
The Star Wars Movies Introduction
The Star Wars Saga
Star Wars is the name of a series of science fantasy movies, a literary franchise, and a series of video games based on the ideas of filmmaker and writer George Lucas, which consist of numerous prequels, sequels, and literary adaptations. The movies revolve around the transition between the Galactic Republic and the Galactic Empire, as well as the Galactic Civil War which erupts between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire in an epic struggle between good and evil. The story is set "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away..." The phrase also appears at the opening of many Star Wars spin-offs.
The original (or, in story order, the fourth) Star Wars movie was first released in 1977, but the novelization was released a year before in 1976. The last (or in story order, the third) Star Wars film is due out in 2005. The original idea for Star Wars was conceived in the early 1970s and went through many different drafts until it became the story we know today.
