Star Wars back in theatres?February 7th, 2008 - 5:20 pm ICT by admin
Melbourne, Feb 7 (ANI): George Lucas is reportedly planning to take the first three or four episodes of his new Star Wars animated television series and combine them for a full-length animated theatrical feature.
According to TheForce.Net and Action-Figure.com, the animated theatrical feature will be released in September, reports Moviehole.
Star Wars is an epic space opera franchise initially developed by Lucas during the 1970s and significantly expanded since that time.
The first movie in the franchise was simply titled Star Wars, but later had the subtitle A New Hope added to distinguish it from its sequels and prequels.
Star Wars was released on May 25, 1977 by 20th Century Fox, and became a worldwide pop culture phenomenon, initially spawning two sequels.
Twenty-two years after its release, Lucas began the release of a second trilogy as a prequel to the original trilogy.
The franchise has also spawned other media including novels, television series, video games, comic books, and other merchandise.
These supplements to the film trilogies comprise the Star Wars Expanded Universe, and have resulted in significant development of the series’ fictional universe. (ANI)
