Chris W. writes in to tell us that the May 20, 2005 issue of Entertainment Weekly had an article recapping Star Wars' history. At the bottom of the article there was a timeline of Lucas and Star Wars beginning with the release of THX1138 in 1971. On page 28, under the date 6/26/1997, it says "Lucas steps behind the camera for the first time since Star Wars as Episode I begins shooting. It's been ten years already!
That wasn't so long. C'mon George, give us Episodes 7-9. Whats another decade among friends?
