It was announced yesterday and the papers are signed. What we thought was impossible has come to pass. George Lucas sold Lucas Films and Star Wars and everything else to Disney. Lucas actually bought into Disney. He sold it for 4 billion and 40 million in shares of Disney and now owns a chunk of Disney. He said he plans on retiring and he wanted to pass the franchise on to a new set of incredible filmmakers. He will continue to be a advisor for all things star wars including the new movies episodes 7, 8, and 9. That’s right. Disney is set to have episode 7 in theaters in 2015. Knowing how Disney loves to restart franchises and has the star wars fans upset in an uproar over the possibilities of them re-doing episodes 1-6, Disney said that at this time they have no wish do remake those. You might see a new cartoon series of the clone wars on Disney though. Disney has yet to truly mess up marvel so we will have high hopes they don’t mess up star wars.
How do you think Disney will do with the franchise?
