I think Lucas owes it to himself as an auteur, to try directing something other than Star Wars. Hone your craft, for goodness sake. You put out a quality production in Revenge of the Sith, now is the time to build on that. I'm a bit disappointed if Lucas doesn't challenge himself on this pet project, and give it a go in the director's chair. I would be intrigued enough to see it, if Lucas directed it himself, whereas without an interesting director attached, I would likely pass on it.

Well that should put some of the lucas haters at ease. Hopefully with his backing there will be some great CG dogfights.

The HBO picture was good enough.

I don't know about Lucas. The guy knows technology for the sake of it, but not as well as Peter Jackson. I think the guy needs to go out and party for a few years and get back to the real world, with a new sense for human beings. Spielberg and Ford, get this guy laid. His characters and dialogue are too one dimensional. He is definitely smart and has proved himself in his youth, but like the wachowskis he has lost touch with reality. Also his ego is huge and it should be.
