As you probably know, today marks the 30th anniversary of Star Wars (and if you didn’t? Well, you need to visit RazorFine review more often), and there’s quite the rumor going about that George Lucas will be announcing a new Star Wars film today.
Oh, you read that right. The possibility of a new Star Wars film is a weird one to consider. To be honest, I’d be pretty excited about that were there assurances that Lucas would neither write the final screenplay nor direct it, but at this point it’s still very much a fan boy rumor. Personally I’d lean toward a new SW film being a non-starter, but who knows? There is the TV show planned for 2008, and maybe Lucas has decided he needs to own all of California, and not just the top half.
