Star Wars sequels rumour arises

George Lucas could be set to make three sequels to the original Star Wars trilogy, according to insiders at Lucasfilm.

Fan site claims employees at Lucas's special effects company Industrial Light and Magic have signed non-disclosure agreements promising not to talk about the possibility of episode's seven, eight and nine being made.

The rumoured follow-ups would reportedly pick up where 1983's Return of the Jedi left off.

However, Lucas has always insisted he would never film them.
