From the BBC come an article which states that Spielberg was refused an opportunity to direct a Star Wars episode by Lucas.
"I've asked him. He won't let me do one," said Spielberg in the interview.Now, I can't say that Spielberg has the right feel of the SW films...they might not end up being good.
But Lucas, please! Follow these instructions! For the sake of everyone who loves the Star Wars franchise!
