Star Wars Episode 3 Reshoots & Information About Star Wars 7, 8 & 9
Outsiders - August 26, 2004

The "Star Wars" official site just ran this report about the reshoots about to take plce on the new prequel.

The actors who will most often be on set are Hayden Christensen, Ewan McGregor and Ian McDiarmid. As this trio has the bulk of Episode III's screen-time, it should come as no surprise that they too have the majority of the pick-up schedule. Ian and Hayden started yesterday, and Ewan started today. They are all scheduled to run through next week, with Ian wrapping up first on September 1st.

Natalie Portman only has two days of pickup shooting, today and tomorrow. Also with similar short but intense schedules is Anthony Daniels, who wraps up tomorrow; he donned his golden droid form today to film a scene with Natalie on the apartment balcony set. Jimmy Smits has a single day of shooting next week, as does Christopher Lee and Silas Carson. Samuel L. Jackson will come in later this week and be in front of the camera for three days.

For a few days now the talk of the Net seems to have been the reports that movement on the sequel trilogy to "Star Wars" has been happening after a report popped up at TheForce.Net indicating that employees at Lucas' FX company, Industrial Light & Magic, have signed non-disclosure agreements that legally prevents them from discussing anything associated with Episodes 7-9.

Now E! Online has some further information. A rep for Lucasfilm has, at least on official levels, canned any possibility of any more films. About this talk, spokeswoman Lynn Fox says "The rumors are absolutely untrue...Star Wars: Episode III--Revenge of the Sith is our last and final installment". Fox also confirmed no non-disclosure was ever signed pertaining to future episodes.

Nevertheless the ForceNet guys are sticking to their guns, editor Josh Griffin saying about the rumours they first published - "Obviously, there is some movement on episodes on VII, VII and IX. It's obviously something to do with special effects...There's absolutely no reason to do that unless they have something to disclose". They also say an Australian source has confirmed talk of Lucas' desire to shoot the films Down Under like he did with the last two prequels.
