"One of the more ludicrous rumors currently doing the rounds is that a theatrical re-release of the previous Wars trilogy, with upgraded special effects, is imminent."
- Chris Gore (editor), Sci-Fi Universe Magazine #1, 1994.

"The advantage of computer graphics is you don't have to work much with blue screen, something that's very difficult to do well. On Empire we used a huge amount of light and blue screen and it took forever. Now, you just say 'We'll do it CGI', and put it in later".
- Irvin Kershner.

"The first trilogy is about the young Ben Kenobi and the early days of Luke's father when Luke was a little boy"
- George Lucas.

"It's possible that the new stories may not be told chronologically. Lucas may instead use a storytelling method similar to that used by his old friend Francis Ford Coppola in The Godfather, Part II."
- Chris Gore.

"The first trilogy will not be as much of an action-adventure kind of thing. Maybe it will have some humor, but right now it's much more humorless than the second trilogy."
- George Lucas.

"The most convincing sign of Lucas' seriousness about continuing the saga is that all licensing agreements now being made with Star Wars licensees expire in December 1996 - regardless of when they were signed. This [prequel trilogy release] would allow Lucasfilm to reassess its licensing partners and their activities prior to the inevitable onslaught of merchandise accompanying any new film"
– Chris Gore.

My favorite (nostalgic, for lack of a better word) quote in that entire article was the comment about a "online conference held on the on-line service GEnie."

Up until about five minutes ago, I had forgotten GEnie existed.

David Prowse in a Q&A-session in Sci-Fi Universe Magazine #11, november 1995:

"I would love to play Anakin, but there's some talk about Mark Hamill filling that role, playing his own father. I don't know how they'd explain his going from his size to my size when he plays Darth Vader, though. Whoever they choose needs to be a very physical actor. He could be the greatest dramatist in the world, but without a physical presence, Vader wouldn't be worth anything."

Reviewer Dan Webber from the same issue in an article called "50 reasons why 'Jedi' sucks":

"Worst of all, there are two solid instances [in Return of the Jedi] where burbs are used for cheap laughs. Burps! And where are the fart jokes? Well, maybe in the next film."

Thats a terrifyingly clear vision of the future.

I think it will be out this fall. And the hands holding the lightsaber on the cover will be digitally – and awkwardly – replaced with Haydens. :)

How about scanning the POTA (Planet of the Apes) article too? I bought this magazine when it came out, just to read that article, but I lost it or something.

Considering the average life expectancy I might still be alive. Bummer. Well, here's hoping motion pictures are obsolete by that time...

Nice article. I remember seeing that issue advertized in some old mag I have, probably in an Insider... always wondered what it said.

Always loved the cover, even though it's just a shot of the Falcon... that image became one of my first mind's eye glimpses of the Prequels.

I had a magazine once, SciFi something (Wizard released it), and they were discussing the prequels and the sequels. I'll try and find it, but those were the days. No Jar Jar, no Hayden, and no fart jokes, only hope for what Lucas would do.

The caption accompanying the spirit pic on the last page is some nice foreshadowing.

If someone attempts to remake Star Wars, us fans would likely start a jihad against it's production.

I like the way in that article Lucas says "I have story treatments on all nine.".


Now he insists he never had a story for episodes 7, 8 and 9. I wonder what the truth is or was?!

Well, Lucas did "lie" to Spielberg that he had concepts for three stories, when he presented him the idea of Indiana Jones. Maybe he even thought he did have, but later on they proved to be not very good rough sketches and Lucas had to invent new ones for the sequels to be made.

My point is, maybe Lucas did write some notes on the (Star Wars) sequel trilogy, but was never satisfied with them and doesn't consider them as a real story concept now.

Lucas has become fixated on appearing right about everything, all the time. I love the guy and his work, but he's a world-class fibber when it comes to his creative process, as if he's afraid of being thought of as a hack for not having the SW saga come into his head fully developed.

"I have story treatments on all nine"

"I had a huge script that I split up into three parts and the OT came from it"

"I had a huge script that I split up into six parts and the saga came from it"

"Nine movies? That's just a media thing"

He's Tommy Flanagan with a beard.
