Peter Mayhew who playes Chewbacca in the Star Wars films has been quoted as saying he contracted up till 2009 to film Episodes 3, 7, 8 and 9. A slip of the tongue perhaps. We all know Chewie is in Episode 3 but where did the sequels come from?

On the one hand I'm excited by it, it would be great, but on the other is it pushing it too far? Would Mark Hamill play an ageing Luke? Would Harrison Ford even consider playing Han? Would they digitally enhance Carrie Fisher to make her look slim? Too many questions.

Lord... The first three (eps. 4,5,&6) were enough. The two recent ones are COMPLETE garbage and sequels would most likely be just as bad.

"Would Mark Hamill play an ageing Luke?"

He's also been quoted as saying he was signed to play in a sequel, a la an Obi-Wan-type mentor.

I think this is just good business. Mayhew gets the promise he'll be in any sequel if they are made. I don't think, however, that this is confirmation that Lucas plans to make any sequels. If rumors are to be believed, then Spielberg is also interested in making them. I've learned that Star Wars folk like to talk too much.

And apparently, Dan, I'm the only person on Earth who liked the prequels.

...I liked the prequel (since there was only one at that time) in 7th grade...*blushes*

I love the prequals. Attack of the Clones has the best last 30 minutes I've seen. Casting Christopher Lee was genius. The Phantom Menace has the best sword-fight I've seen and Ewan McGregor is a fantastic Obi-Wan "Not good!".

Please tell me you're joking Banquo. Attack of the Clones was awful, unless it was supposed to be funny?

I'd rather watch Highlander 3.

You're not wrong Archie, you old buzzard - cracking set of hooters in 'Highlander 3'.

I was in rather a daze throughout 'Attack Of t'Clones', and just ended up wanted 'em to all get squashed.

I like them all so far, but if I had to rate a worse one, it would be episode 1.
I hope they stop at episode 3...the wait for 7,8 or 9 would be too much.

I stand my decision Kind Sir, AOTC was, in my rose-tinted spectacles, a fine film. Agreed that some of acting was dodgy but that's always been the case in all Star Wars films. Look at Mark "Whiney" Hamill in the 1977 original.

But if George Lucas doesn't stop his obsession with filling every shot with CGI I think its doomed no matter how good Episode III is. Just wait till I start on the old Star Trek odd number films are not shite thread.
