George Lucas continues to rape his creation

Fresh from seeing James Cameron's Avatar, director George Lucas is set to makeover both the Star Wars trilogy and its heretical "prequels" in 3D.

He said that he had initially thought of the idea after finishing the last Star Wars film, The Revenge of the Sith, in 2005. But he was convinced about the idea after watching blockbuster Avatar, which picked up two Golden Globes last week.

Lucas said: 'We've been looking for years to do this but the technology hasn't been there. I think this will be a new impetus to make that happen.'

I'm actually enjoying the spectacle of seeing Lucas tear down his own temple.

After he turned the Jedi from faithful mystics into purebred genetic supermen, and then went on to make them the dissent-crushing occupation corps of a broken political system, I came to the conclusion that what goes on in Lucas' mind and what comes out of his mouth are not at all related.

But it is downright hilarious to see him try to reconcile the two in pursuit of more moolah.
