Lucas says hes too old to do Episodes 7-9, but I think most feel the legacy needs to be completed. It is no longer the end of things after Episode VI because we all know there is still more, especially if you've read any of the books that chronicle events after Episode VI.

Many of the future Star Wars books have the original characters in their 40's or older so to me the same actors would play the same characters in episodes 7-9. Those three episodes are the future of things farther down the road, not five years from the end of episode six. What has happened to everyone after 30 years and what do they do when they find ghosts from the past returning to make the final circle complete.

that would be too cool for school! well i guess if it doesnt happen in our lifetimes, maybe they can clone the original actors, cause i think it will take george lucas dieing of some sorts before we see 7 to 9.

Incorrect. The saga follows the story of Anakin Skywalker and his SON Luke. There are 3 trilogies. 123, 456, 789.

789 will likley never be made.

^^^ This is the general consencus, unless you can provide several links to credible sources to back your argument, I see no reason to beleive otherwise.

Thats true only for those that have never read any of the books taking place after episode six. The Timothy Zahn series taking place not long after the end of episode six is pretty good and it only goes on from there. Plus, a Star Wars TV series might take place after episode six too.

I dont think the original trilogy will ever see the light of day again. EVER

Well if it was me I would retire. He has made his mark, and changed film making for the better. And he's in his 50's now. If he started Ep. 7,8,9. He would be in his mid 60's. If it was me I would retire to spend time with my family. He has made his mark and money. I would regret not seeing the saga come to a real close, but I would understand him retiring.

P.S. Even if he does retire, his children and friends can take over.
Maybe their will be Ep. 7,8,9. No telling where Star Wars will go.
