STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, VIII & IX?

Ok, I’m not sure what to make of this one. For years now George Lucas has been saying that these 3 new Star Wars films will be the final ones ever made. Personally, I believe him. However, Cinescape posted the following quote from TheForce.Net that will have lots of Star Wars fans raising an eyebrow or two:

If this turns out to be legit STAR WARS fans will have a Brit magazine named Hotdog to thank for it, but here goes: according to the December 2003 issue of that magazine, Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew said that when he signed his contract to work in EPISODE III, there was a clause that he would be “required” to work in EPISODES VII, XIII and IX of the STAR WARS film series.

Hmmm√¢‚Ǩ¬¶ I’ll have to send a couple of emails around to see if there is ANY truth to this. I doubt there is, but man I hope that if there is more Star Wars on the horizon George will let someone else direct them. Lucas (in my opinion) is the greatest story creator of our time, but he’s shown he’s not the best at TELLING those stories. I hope he writes new Star Wars films and has overall control over them, but allows another director to tell the story for him. Just my two cents worth.
