Default Re: General Star Wars Episode VII News/Speculation Thread - Part 8

The problem with Starwars7news is that 99% of the time they just copy and paste what they find on other sites. So the idea that all of a sudden they have all these super secret sources is pretty funny.

And since when has George Lucas always decided upon the love of Luke Skywalkers life? He said the opposite in the 2008 Total Film interview. He said he didn't agree with the expanded universe and that Luke Skywalker doesn't get married.

Are you happy for new Star Wars tales to be told after you're gone?

I've left pretty explicit instructions for there not be any more features. There will definitely be no Episodes VII-IX. That's because there isn't any story. I mean, I never thought of anything! And now, there have been novels about the events after Episode VI, which isn't at all what I would have done with it. The Star Wars story is really the tragedy of Darth Vader. That is the story. Once Vader dies, he doesn't come back to life, the Emperor doesn't get cloned and Luke doesn't get married...
