It's with a heavy heart that I bring you the devastating news that Star Wars creator George Lucas has passed away. He was 52 years old and in the middle of shooting the first film in his new epic prequel trilogy Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. According to the report he was killed by a CGI explosion that accidently went off on the set of the film.
The films production will not continue without Lucas, so we will never really know what exactly he was planning for us with the incredible highly anticipated new trilogy. There's no doubt that it would have ended up being another Lucas sci-fi masterpiece.
Lucas has forever changed the way movie will be made, and he'll be missed. It's sad to think about all of the movies that we will never see. On top of his Star Wars prequel trilogy, we'll never know if he was planning another Indiana Jones film, or any other original films, which is something he's been talking about doing. There's so much movie awesomeness that could have been.
That being said he'll always be remembered for the incredible movies that he did create such as the Star Wars and Indiana Jones trilogies. These movies will go down history of some of the greatest films ever made.
It really awful that this had to happen. It's an incredibly sad day, and our hearts and prayers go out to his family and friends. If there's anything you'd like to say about Lucas and his brilliant work please feel free to post your thoughts in the comment section below.
This is obviously an APRIL FOOLS joke that was written all in the name of fun. It takes us back in time to the year 1997 while Lucas was shooting The Phantom Menace, and how we might have reacted if he had died while shooting it. This was a time when we all thought he was he was still the man that could do no wrong. The Phantom Menace changed all of our opinions about him really fast.
