The money made from these in the theater would be put towards the funding of the next projects. He stated that each of the 3D upgraded formats would be released on a schedule of one per year for 6 years.

The time line for episodes 7-9 was then stated to have nothing at all to do with any of the Skywalkers and to be set far enough after Jedi to not be linked to the first 6 directly. He decided to do this due to the fan backlash.

So far, it seems that the time frame given during that interview (sorry I do not recall where it was, exact date given, or reference to it) has so far been pretty much dead on to what was stated. I tend to wonder if he truly is done with SW all together. After all, it is his life.

Just some thoughts to through out and to contribute to the topic.
George apparently said recently he was done with big movies. But you may be right you never know, there is another minor thing - the Lucas - Cameron complex. Cameron always said he wanted his Star Wars, and despite his great successes he never had his Star Wars - hence we have Avatar. GL has always been a fan of special effects, his original movies changed the landscape in effects and the 2nd Trilogy also pushed boundaries in that no movie had featured so much blue screen CGI. These movies had stellar casting, Jackson, McGregor, Portman even they struggled with this new type of acting (I think Yoda won the award in those). Cameron absolutely started nailing the technique in addition to motion capture in Avatar

He isn't getting younger, but I wouldn't right off entirely Lucas taking another attempt using new technologies to finish off his great work. Besides there are alot of Nolans and Wheddons out there bringing back the best in Studio collaborations. The next decade could be it.

Pretty interesting article. I'd love to see some silly Star Wars, we all have grown up, why so serious.
