FLASHBACK: 'STAR WARS - THE CLONE WARS' COMING DECEMBER 1988!

Cameras roll soon on the next STAR WARS movie- news circa 1987.

I always enjoyed reading STARBURST MAGAZINE growing up. It was a poor man's STARLOG in many respects by the time new ownership had assumed its publishing mantle in the mid-eighties, after a prior dip in circulation led to MARVEL quitting the title, but there was still lots of cult film and TV to be enjoyed within its pages. The Things To Come news section was always a firm staple of the magazine and the majority of the time the info they printed on upcoming projects was excellent. It's just a shame they got this one so wrong in their May 1987 issue 105 (especially putting up a teaser on their bottom right corner cover!) - still they were only off by eight and a bit years, and it at least put the saga back on the publicity radar for a little bit longer!


I continue to enjoy imagining/speculating how EPISODEs I to III would have looked had they been made with pre-CGI effects technology, and with Irvin Kershner or Richard Marquand possibly directing one each...
