George Lucas is set to make a "huge" announcement today, with rumours suggesting the director will announce plans for a new Star Wars film. The news comes as celebrations begin around the world to mark the 30th anniversary of the first film.
Internet rumours suggest Lucas plans to make a new Star Wars movie set before the recent prequels.
A British newspaper reported Lucas let it slip that he was working on a new movie in a recent interview, then tried to cover it up. The paper suggested the film would be set at the time of the Old Republic, when the Jedi regained control of the galaxy from the Dark Lords of the Sith.
Lucas has already confirmed a Star Wars live action TV series will begin filming in Australia next year.
