there's an interesting article over a rumor that George Lucas intends to undo the events in the original trilogy and that he should).

The idaa is that some bounty hunters develop time traveling technology and go back and prevent anakin from becoming Darth Vader. I'm assuming this also prevents Palpatine's plans to come to fruition.

While I am pretty sure a "Time Bandits" fan somewhere is having a massive laugh at Star Wars fandom expense....


part of me thinks this is the sort of idea that would appeal to Lucas. "The Clone Wars" could go on forever and ever!

Anytime any so called reporter opens with "Now, we hate to perpetuate rumors that may not have any basis in reality, but"

Means they are literally talking out of something other then their mouth. This is journalism at its worst. It is a giant conspiracy theory based on 2 statements and one example that isn't exactly true and taken out of context.

I'm convinced George just hates everyone now and that's his big FU to the world, if it's true.

What is true for sure is the man's such a baby. I'm a writer: when most people who read my stuff dislike it, I look at it, try to figure out what I did wrong, and get better at it. The prequels have been talked about to death. He knows what he did wrong. Yet, rather than learn from them, he stomps his feet like a child and says; "You all just didn't get them! I'm NEVER making another one AGAIN!"

George can do whatever he wants and Star Wars fans will shove it down their throat and ask for seconds this includes ruining any form of original canon so he can make way for an almost guaranteed success with a TV series.

Not true. I'm a huge Star Wars fan, and I love the "original" original trilogy before Lucas decided to start fiddling with it. I'm talking 1995 THX VHS release. And I'm also not a fan of the prequels and everything they changed (midichlorians anyone?). So yeah, lets not go using blanket statements about groups of people, it makes you sound like an ignorant arse.
There is no emotion (except Love, that's ok); there is peace. There is no ignorance; there is knowledge. There is no passion; there is serenity. There is no chaos; there is harmony. There is no death; there is the Force.

I wouldn't be surprise if this was either fact, or if they got trolled. Sounds like the premise for an Infinities comic.

Comedy gold. I'm certainly not going to hold my breath waiting for this to happen. To be frank, the whole article comes off like a weak excuse to trot out the tired old "George Lucas hates the OT" meme. Troll-a-riffic.

This guy's right on.

This all stems from 1 rumor, from an admittedly untested source.
