I can already hear the fanboys weeping. Yes, George "Backlash" Lucas is putting out yet another edition of Star Wars. And by Star Wars, I mean the whole of it. All six episodes. There's going to be new footage, new behind-the-scenes, and features out the wazoo. All this to be released sometime in 2007.
In addition to this news comes the news item that ILM has already replaced the puppet Yoda from Episode I with the CGI look from Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. Again, this should make fanboys cry.
Look, I love Star Wars too. But people should really stop thinking it's going to somehow solve all that's wrong with their lives. Lucas is just a man, and these are his films. He's putting the money up, he can essentially do what he wants to.
And that includes an entire film featuring Jar Jar Binks if he wants it.
