                                                      Found out some details regarding the upcoming Star Wars movie - these come from the transcript from a chat between a Star Wars website and the film's producer Rick Mccallum.

No word on the title yet though, and details are sketchy at best.

Star Wars Episode 3 will include the following :

--Large Scale Space Battle at the beginning
--Most Lightsaber Battles ever in one movie
--Mace Windu Battles a Sith Lord (?answer: "Possibly.......")
--All battles will be of a very large scale (paraphrased: "bigger than Geonosis")
--Episode III will bridge the gap between PT & OT
--Episode III will answer MOST unanswered questions.
--Episode III will be around 2 hours long
--Episode III takes place 3 years after AOTC
--Episode III will be rated PG
--We will see A LOT of new worlds
--Hayden has really bulked up for the role. ("Arms as big as Rick's thighs")
--Anakin will be doing some evil things
--Anakin's transition to Vader will be "intense"
--Jar Jar has less screen time than AOTC
--Anakin vs. Obi-Wan will be "awesome"
--Rick personally wouldn't let a 3 year old see Episode III  
--Expect a lot of great changes like Clonetroopers to Stormtroopers
--Episode III has a more adventure feel to it
--Christopher Lee is in great shape, ready to go for Episode III
--Ben Burtt's back as sound designer
--There's a new bad guy. ("Yes, expect someone serious.")  
--The emperor or Anakin will make use of the darkside of the force...ex..lightning or chokes. ("Yes, and even more.")
--We will see some nice glorious deaths in Episode 3. ("Absolutely. None of these whimpy fights with droids.")

                                                      Same place where I have gotten a rough draft script of all the Star Wars episodes. I was 8 years old when Star Wars first came out, and was an instant fanatic. I was a member of the Fan Club for over a decade and acquired thousands of dollars of cool stuff. I received them as limited offers through the fan club.

Star Wars is cool cool.gif

                                                      Did you happen to get a script of the Star Wars Holiday Special as well?  I can't imagine that Lucas would have wanted that out, he is upset enough about the bootlegged version of it floating around, but it would be interesting to see what that looked like on paper.  Most notably, I would like to see how they managed to justify in written word a scene of Wookies talking to eachother.

                                                      No I don't have the Holiday Special, and have never heard of it. If that was a joke, I'm sorry but I didn't get it. There is quite a bit that got out that Lucas didn't want, which is quite unfortunate. People that do things like that are not fans, but are people who want to make a fast buck.

But it's really not that interesting. Reading the book is far more interesting, because the script doesn't capture the scene and involve the reader like the book does. Still a nice addition to the collection, though original.gif

Well, it's more like I was a dedicated fan. I'm not the fanatic I used to be. I'm a fan of you now KC wub.gif

                                                      Rest assured, that is no joke.  It is out there, and it is "special".

Here is a handy link which will shed a little more light on this: http://www.x-entertainment.com/messages/236.html

The Holiday Special isn't something that "snuck out", it was broadcast on TV.  I happen to have a copy, on the PC even.  Arragements can be made for any who wish to see it, but be warned...

                                                      Hey!!  I actually remember watching this movie as a kid .
  I understood everything the "Wookies" said , It was shown in Australia on WIN TV in 1982 and I remember I cried when the  Stormtroopers ripped the head off of the Baby Wookie's teddybear . sad.gif
    I actually enjoyed it , but then again I was only 8  original.gif

                                                      Thanks for the information Space Moose. I remember the show, but it's been so many years ago, that I had forgotten it was a Holiday Special.

There have been a few made for TV Star Wars specials, and I thought they were all terrible. I don't really consider them worthy of being Star Wars, but that's just my opinion.

Thanks again for the info. I remember that it was terrible, but I had forgotten just how terrible it was.
