Italian Report on Star Wars

Translated from Italian by Yoda in March 2011, this was:

Star Wars even more than cats in longevity. While in Wellington it is proposed the documentary “The People vs. George Lucas” , nice overview on the whole question of Western genius and creativity of the author’s fans, Lego announced that the month will be released on the third computer game dedicated to the saga of the Jedi in 3d and the remastering of the episode one, ” The Phantom Menace “will be available to fans in February 2012.

To date, eight projects closely related to the family Skywalker in constant struggle with the dark side of force. Six films, an animated series for three seasons in 2008 has created a film filling all the wars and political intrigues, from Coruscant to Naboo, passed between the second and the third episode of the first trilogy. Not to mention the saga of the Ewok, the friendly bears who gave hospitality to Princess Leia and company in “The Return of the Jedi” was among the first examples of spin-off film or how to squeeze the cow to the end especially when the bottom is not reached .
But to keep the suspense fans and showbiz in recent months are the constant rumors about the new adventure set in the universe created by George Lucas in the fabulous ’70s. New film or TV series? In late October 2010 the site IESB , had good relations with the father of a thousand people, is reporting that Lucas is working on a new subject for a film set after the fall of the Empire, no member of the Skywalker family, and perhaps with the recovery of the illegal order Jedi .

To precede the entries on the coveted new film as we think in August the creation of the television series . A promise Phantom of the director, writer, producer, special effects wizard, launched back in 2005 at a convention of fans in Indianapolis. The Bible series is focused on the years that pass between “Revenge of the Sith” and the proto film “A New Hope.” Fifteen – twenty years or between Padmé and Anakin and the growth of Luke and Leia. Unfortunately, no lightsabers, the Jedi are nearly extinct, except Yoda and Obi Wan in voluntary exile, to Tatooine to watch over young Luke. Perhaps a story about Boba Fett, the renegade of the galaxies.

Years went by and the promises remain. In 2007 here is the name of the manufacturer. Richard McCallum, Lucas’ buddy along for producing “The Young Indiana Jones “, but most of all is the man behind” Undercover “, the video of the Rolling Stones named by MTV the best product of 80 years. McCallum becomes large and is able to say that these ideas can create 4000 episodes, for years and years of planning. HD cameras, a million dollars the cost of each episode, the principal location in Sydney with an agent already in pre-production and especially the name of a director. Welsh James Marquand, son of Richard already behind the camera episode six.

Exactly two years ago someone off balance, even on the casting. Rose Byrne, nice handmaiden of Natalie Portman in episode two, tells MTV that the cast is already open and that some of his friends have already participated. Now Lucas and denials in 2009 that says that everything will start in 2010 and 2010, work is not taking place before 2011. What is certain is that Ewan McGregor will be there, if anything you can say for sure. Given the crisis in Ireland, never say never. There may be, as to be no Hayden Christensen , Anakin the beautiful blonde, a Canadian who has just a bit ‘of hunger back by her grandmother in Naples to get to cook the meat sauce. Yes, blood is what led the Neapolitan balance in the force long ago in a galaxy far, far away, pace of machismo League.

To date, what is certain is only the presence of George Lucas, just two days ago, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. An old dispute with Andrew Ainsworth, the creator of the clothing empire of the legionnaires. The costume designer continues to produce them and sell them, but George is called copyright. The fans there are and how to continue the saga of the brave Italian Dark Resurrection . The universe is expanding, let alone that of Coruscant. That universe, in principle even snubbed by Brian De Palma, whose rights Lucas traded accepting the union pay. Recently two economists Neapolitans have set up a theory that goes on the market thanks to the most deprived, and not calculated because you throw more. Will fans of Star Wars ?

Silent Film Star Wars


The general consensus in the nerd community is that The Empire Strikes Back is the best in the six-part Star Wars saga. But what if it were made in the 1920’s? Anachronisme answers that question for you with a few effects presets and some title cards.

The video is pretty fun to watch albeit a little boring– it’s the same scenes we’ve seen, after all, just in black and white. The soundtrack has been recreated in true silent film form, rounding out this brief video.

New Movies

Don’t start packing up your lawn chairs and igloo coolers just yet, but there will once again be “camping out” for a Star Wars movie. IESB has learned some news about the future of the Star Wars franchise.

First, let me remind our readers of IESB’s past scoops so anyone doubting the news will be aware. From Joss Whedon directing the Avengers, to the recent announcement of Disney’s planned renegotiation of the Paramount Marvel deal, to the countless casting scoops, directing scoops, to our solid sources at Lucasfilm.

Confirmed IESB scoops specific to the Star Wars universe include the first announcement of the PG-13 rating of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, the first word of a live action Star Wars TV series as well as the Clone Wars animated series. Yes, all of these Lucasfilm scoops were all first reported here on IESB.

Now on to our newest big Lucasfilm scoop, ready? George Lucas is plotting to create new Star Wars movies at the ultra top-secret Skywalker Ranch.

This is déjà vu of the mid 90’s when Uncle George starting tweaking the Holy Trilogy to gear up for the Special Editions. That was his first step in moving forward with the eventual prequel trilogy.

It’s happening all over again, Lucasfilm is already hard at work converting the entire Star Wars saga into 3D which will be released starting with Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 2012. The word from our ultra top-secret Lucasfilm insider is that Lucas has gotten the itch and is already looking ahead into launching an entirely new trilogy in that galaxy far, far away.

What do we know? First of all, these new film will have nothing to do with the live action television series currently in development. That show already has over 50 scripts ready to go and plenty of pre-production time and money has been spent on artwork and storyboards. Once that show goes into production, Lucasfilm hopes to be able to produce at least 100 episodes since that is the threshold for syndication in the United States.

IESB has been told fans can expect the new trilogy after the entire saga is released in 3D which is expected to be complete around 2015 or 2016.

Uncle George’s modus operandi has not changed, the plan is that he will self finance the new trilogy after he rakes in an expected $500 – $750 million dollars with the re-release of the entire Star Wars Saga in 3D and on Blu-Ray.

The ideal plan, according to our spy at Skywalker Ranch, is to be able to release a new Star Wars film within 24 months after the release of the last re-re-release (is that right?) of Return of the Jedi 3D.

Too early for story details but one thing that our source is certain about, they will not be prequels but instead sequels. It’s not for certain if they will be the long awaited Episodes 7, 8 and 9 but could instead be Episodes 10, 11 and 12 or possibly even further out in the Star Wars timeline. And by giving space in the timeline, possibly even as far as 100 years or 1,000 years in the Star Wars universe future, Lucas avoids having to make these stories “fit in” with what the previous stories have told.

According to our sources, the most likely scenario for the films is that they will exist in the same universe but will not have anything to do with the Skywalker Clan. That story has been told, that starship has sailed.

What has caused this sudden change of heart for Uncle George? Well, besides the obvious possible billions that a new Star Wars trilogy will take in, our source tells us that George has gotten motivated with the success the Clone Wars animated series, the video games and also with the success of Avatar.

Can we expect Lucasfilm to confirm our story? Have they ever? Nope, I am sure that they will spin this or completly deny the story, but we will stand 100% behind our source.
