Lucas Update: Portman, "Star Wars," and "Indy 4"

by | March 7, 2007 | Comments

Got a grab-bag of George Lucas news bits for you, including a final denial that Natalie Portman will appear in "Indiana Jones 4," plus a few new items on those long-discussed "Star Wars" TV projects.

First off, let’s squash that rumor, the one that says Natalie Portman will be playing Dr. Jones’ daughter in the third sequel to "Raiders of the Lost Ark." George Lucas plainly states that in this rather cool video interview from (He also goes on to mention which classic characters will appear in the live-action series … folks like Mace and Yoda are mentioned!!)

Lucas also says there will NOT be any future "Star Wars" movies, but also that the brand is far from demised. It also looks like the filmmaker’s "Red Tails" war drama might soon be happening, but certainly not before "Indiana Jones 4" gets moving.
