PostSubject: Disney buys Star Wars!!   Tue Oct 30, 2012 4:42 pm

The force is strong with Mickey Mouse.

The Walt Disney Company announced on Tuesday that it is purchasing Lucasfilm in a stock and cash purchase valued at $4.05 billion. The deal includes plans for Star Wars: Episode VII, aiming for release in 2015, with more Star Wars movies planned to “grow the franchise well into the future,” according to the release. The deal also includes George Lucas’ companies like Industrial Light & Magic, and Skywalker Sound.

“For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next,” said Star Wars creator and Lucasfilm CEO George Lucas in a statement. “It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I’ve always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime.”

Veteran Hollywood producer Kathleen Kennedy, who recently became co-chairman of Lucasfilm, will become the studio’s president, reporting to Disney chairman Alan Horn. She will executive produce the future Star Wars films, with Lucas serving as a creative consultant.



Wow, am I a nerd for being stoked

I can't wait for more movies, I have read all of the Expanded Universe, which are the books that take place after Return of the Jedi. I hope they just keep chugging the movies out!

I never got into all the new movies. Actually, I guess it was the first prequel that I didn't really like and never bothered to watch the rest of them.


I love the original triology though. Although if I watch them now, Return of the Jedi really is terrible. lol2
