Episode 2 Rumors Printed Here First
In this age of the Internet, by the time "Uncle" George Lucas puts
the final period on the Episode 2 script, some dorks with
a Xena fetish will have it posted on their web site. We have our
fair share of covert industry insiders here at RTC and are proud
to reveal the first scoops on the second most eagerly awaited prequel
- Kenny Baker to retire, Lucas says he will write R2-D2 out of
script, try to explain the inconsistency in Episode 3.
- Jar Jar Binks is Luke's real father.
- Due to scheduling conflicts, Samuel L. Jackson will not return
to the role of Mace Windu. Jim Henson's Creature Shop is hard
at work on a life-like puppet to replace him.
- In a startingly retro move, although Episode 2 will be
shot digitally, it will only be released in the considered-to-be-
defunct Betamax format. "Technology is overrated," Lucas said
after knocking back his thirteenth martini of the evening.
