Viimeisin Star Wars -trilogia on ulkona. Silti väkisinkin tulee mieleen, millainen se olisi voinut olla George Lucasin johdolla. Kirjassa Taschen’s The Star Wars Archives 1999-2005 on nyt paljastunut, millainen se hänen trilogiansa olisi ollut. Keskiössä olisi ollut Leia, ja Luke olisi yrittänyt käynnistää jedikuntaa uudelleen.
”The movies are about how Leia – I mean, who else is going to be the leader? – is trying to rebuild the Republic… Luke is trying to restart the Jedi.”
Paluun olisi tehnyt Dart Maul uuden oppitytön (siis ei oppipojan) kera.
”Darth Maul trained a girl, Darth Talon, who was in the comic books, as his apprentice. She was the new Darth Vader and most of the action was with her. So these were the two main villains of the trilogy.”
Lopulta Lucas teki kuitenkin päätöksen keskittyä perhe-elämään uran sijasta.
”At that time I was starting the next trilogy; I talked to the actors and I was starting to gear up. I was also about to have a daughter… it takes 10 years to make a trilogy… I’d still be working on Episode 9! … Finally, I’d decided I’d rather raise my daughter and enjoy life for a while.”
