Really interesting blog up on Star Wars.com the other day – the short version is that Lucas as early as 1976 planned on doing at least 12 Star Wars movies.
He even asked Mark Hamill (aka Luke Skywalker) about having a role in Episode 9.
You know, when I first did this, it was four trilogies,” Mark Hamill recalled in 2004, speaking of their conversation in 1976. “Twelve movies! Out on the desert, any time between setups… lots of free time. And George was talking about this whole thing… ‘Um, how’d you like to be in Episode IX?’ ‘When is that going to be?’ ‘2011.’ […] I said, ‘Well, what do you want me to do?’ He said, ‘You’ll just be like a cameo. You’ll be like Obi-Wan handing the lightsaber down to the next new hope.’”
