June 8, 1999

NEW YORK (AP) _ George Lucas may turn the special effects up another notch for the next installment of the ``Star Wars″ saga.

Lucas used about 2,000 special effects in ``Star Wars: Episode One _ The Phantom Menace″ _ about four times the number of effects used in director James Cameron’s blockbuster ``Titanic.″

Even more effects may be loaded into the next ``Star Wars″ film, TV Guide reported in its June 12 issue.

``I have no ideas what bizarre things George will come up with for the next one,″ John Knoll, the visual effects chief at Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic studios, told the magazine. ``But he scared us a few weeks ago. He said he ‘held back’ in a few places on ’Episode One.‴
