George Lucas Talks about Episodes 7, 8, and 9

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, George Lucas puts the smackdown on rumors of "Star Wars" sequels beyond next year's "Revenge of the Sith."

Recent reports of Industrial Light and Magic employees being asked to sign non-disclosure agreements for Episodes 7, 8 and 9 sparked intense fanboy conjecture about additional "Star Wars" installments. Lucas, it appears, will have none of that.

When asked by EW about Episodes 7-9, Lucas says: "I'm not going to do it. I'm too old. I've got other movies I want to do. And I don't want anybody else to do it, so I've locked it up so nobody can ever do it."

Lucas goes on to say that future TV "offshoots" may be possible but "the saga itself, the story of the Skywalker family, is over."

So how about the Solo family then?
