"LucasFilm to Send Actors to Jupiter" (Bob Kanefsky)


Marin (KPI) -- LucasFilm and Industrial Light & Magic today revealed
plans to film the third Star Wars trilogy in orbit around Jupiter.  The
actors and film crew for the movies will be the first human beings ever
to venture outside the orbit of Mars.  "Due to the rising price of
special effects, and the public's demand for ever more realism, filming
on location is simply the only way we can hope to break even at the box
office," a spokesthing for LucasFilm told reporters.  Since the journey
will last many months, cryogenic hibernation technology -- first
developed by ILM to keep actors for the second trilogy young -- will be
used for all humans on board.  The ship will be piloted by an ILM 203
mobile computer, who will also play the part of R2D2 in the films.  The
rest of the ship crew is still under construction.  The launch is
scheduled for February 20, 2020, and will take place in Florida, where
ILM will temporarily take over Pad B of Disneyworld's popular "Moon Ride,"
the largest launch facility in the U.S.  "It's not the most
economical launch window," a Disney spokesthing said, "but it is the off-season,
and we wouldn't want to deprive any kid of a chance to visit the moon."

NASA or of Sterling Federal Systems.
