Star Wars Goes To Hell

From Coming Soon.net:

George Lucas . . . says the third and final prequel [in the Star Wars series] will not likely receive the PG rating the previous five films have received.

'I don't think I would take a five- or a six-year-old to this,' says Lucas, 'It's way too strong.'

Lucas is referring to violent scenes in the film and also to Anakin Skywalker's journey to the dark side in the climax of the 30-year-old series. 'We're going to watch him make a pact with the devil,' Lucas tells the program.

He says Skywalker will be descending into Lucas' frightening vision of Hell, a mythical planet composed entirely of erupting volcanos. 'Yes...the lava at the end...it ends in hell.'

Fans of the original trilogy, like myself, might disagree.

The series went to hell when Lucas released that train wreck called Episode One.

FYI, "Anakin" could be re-arranged to spell "Annika". Ohhh, so that's why that "Skywalker chick" quote is down there.

Actually, George Lucas started losing his mind in the last half of Return of the Jedi when he put in those damn Ewoks. I think Lucas put the spongemonkeys in there to symbolize the Vietnamese "freedom fighters" fighting against the "evil empire" of America back in the day.

Jar Jar, as usual, you crossed the line. I don't think the spongmonkeys (seen performing here, http://www.rathergood.com/moon_song/ pre their rockstar Quiznos days) would appreciate being compared to ewoks

While one might argue weither the ewoks were the first foray into hell, The "special edition" was where the elevator broke down in the basement of Hades.
