Turns Out George Lucas Was Working on a New Star Wars Trilogy a Year Before Disney Bought Lucasfilm

If you're like me, you groaned when you heard last year that Disney was buying Lucasfilm and was going to crank out yet another trilogy of Star Wars films—not because you wouldn't love a new trilogy of Star Wars films, but because you assumed at the time it would probably suck. However, when it was announced that J.J. Abrams would direct the next film in the space opera—again, if you're like me—you probably thought, well, okay, it might not be so bad. (Excessive lens flares aside.) And if that is the case, then you're really going to be glad Disney bought Lucasfilm when you hear this next bit of news: according to an inside source, George Lucas was working on a new trilogy up to a year prior to selling the whole thing to Disney.

Daniel Day-Lewis Gets Eaten by the ‘Star Wars VII’ Rumor Machine

Before it's all over, every notable actor working today will have been rumored as a possibility for Star Wars: Episode VII. This week, it's Daniel Day-Lewis' turn. Next week? Dabney Coleman and big-bootied adult-starlet Alexis Texas will be added to the mix. But for now, we'll stick with Lewis.

Latino Review, which is no stranger to inaccurate casting news, is claiming that Lewis was recently spotted having lunch with George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy, the current head of Lucasfilm. If the meeting even took place, it's entirely possible that the trio discussed something completely unrelated to Star Wars, like the long awaited Howard the Duck prequel, A Quack of the Clones.

Latest ‘Star Wars’ Casting Rumors: Is Khan from ‘Star Trek’ Going to a Galaxy Far, Far Away?

Let's call a spade a spade and just say, straight up, that J.J. Abrams and his overlords over at Disney have been huge dill-holes about this whole Star Wars: Episode VII thing. We don't want them to rush. We want them to make smart decisions when it comes to plot and cast so we don't end up with more Ewoks or Gungans. But they know how much we're all dying to know about the next Star Wars trilogy, and now it's starting to feel like they're stringing us along for shits and giggles.

Disney and Lucasfilm Delay Star Wars: Episode VII, Because They Can Do What Ever They Want

Are you guys sitting down? Get this: Disney is delaying the release of Star Wars: Episode a few months. Because that's what you do when you have no script, no title, no confirmed actors, and billions upon billions of dollars. When are they changing it to now? Christmas-time of course. Well, maybe.

‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Rumors: Emperor Palpatine Up In This Bitch?

Is the character of Emperor Palpatine returning for Star Wars: Episode VII? It would seem unlikely considering Darth Vader threw him down the friggin' Death Star's reactor shaft. But that's the rumor currently sweeping the Interwebs thanks to Jedi NewsAccording to their 'unnamed source,' Ian McDiarmid will return for Episode VII as the senator-turned-Sith. Then again, an 'unnamed source' told me that a topless Kate Upton will be playing the queen of the Ewoks in the new trilogy, so in the words of Walter White, maybe we should 'tread lightly' in regard to these rumors from unnamed sources.

John Williams Will Score the New ‘Star Wars’ Films (Unless He Dies)

We've got some good news and some bad news about the planned Star Wars sequels.

The good news is that composer John Williams has agreed to score the films. The bad news is that he's eighty-f*cking-one-years old, which means that he could peace out at any moment. Considering the first film isn't even due until 2015, there's a very real possibility that he won't be around for all three. And that would not be good

After all, where would Star Wars be without his iconic music? Hell, 'Duel of the Fates' is the only tolerable part of Phantom Menace. Hopefully I'm just being negative, and Williams will live to be 135. But just in case, they better get him the the studio tomorrow. The clock is ticking.
