After days of negotiating, the Computer Animated Actors Guild was unable to gain an acceptable contract. As a result they will be striking as of April 3rd, 2001, delaying and possibly causing the cancelation of many upcoming films such as Star Wars: Episode II. "We just can't seem to get through to them. Our contracts were poodoo. This was a last resort," stated Union spokesman Jar Jar Binks. "Meesa was looking forward to working with George [Lucas] on Episode II but not with what he was paying me. [insert high pitched squeal]" No comment was available from the directors.
