    The Walt Disney Company has acquired Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion in cash and stock, and announced a new Star Wars movie to be released in 2015. Kathleen Kennedy, current co-chair of Lucasfilm, will become Lucasfilm's president, reporting to Walt Disney Studios chair Alan Horn as part of stock and cash transaction. “For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next,” said George Lucas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lucasfilm, in a statement. “It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on

          Highly doubt it.........

          The only thing that excites me about this is a new Harry S. Plinkett Red Letter Media review.

            Maybe.

            I'm thinking it will be less fan-friendly and much more family-friendly. Personally, I think Disney could have used this 4 billion dollars to fund something new and original. This seems like a cash grab (which it is). I hope the final results end up being good. We'll have to see, but for now I'm still wishing that Star Wars would just be left alone.

              I'm all for it, as long as Lucas stays far, far away.

                        We don't need anymore Star Wars .. I love the 6 movies that we have .. Anything else is just a cash grab.

                        The new movies will be full of CGI characters that no one really cares about imo

                          Walt Disney acquired Lucasfilm Ltd. for over 4 billion bucks?!? What a hell of a deal is that?!
                          They will own the rights for Star Wars then as well?

                          Probably his most rational decision yet, after butchering his legacy with the digital postproduction, adding or altering crucial scenes into the movies. Plus, giving a shit about the fans, who are in his eyes just a bunch of customs for his products.

                            Nice to see it out of Lucas' hands after what he's done in the last several years to SW at least.

                            Chances are with 4 billion, Disney has the rights to all or most future royalities, I'm sure we'll hear more about the deal in the days to come tho.

                            Honestly, I'd rather see a reboot than part 7 tho.

                            Do better versions of parts 1-3 at least, and then build from there, redoing parts 4-6 so the story comes out smoother instead of all the things fans felt didn't really connect the two trilogies very well.

                            It'd also be cool is they made some movies out of the stories from the Old Republic eras and even older. There's actually stories, or at least "historical" events going back 1000's of years before the first movie.

                            Plus rides, exhibits, TV and cartoon series. If you can do series like Farscape, Stargate, Battlestar Glactica, you can do some good Star Wars series'

                            This could be a huge deal for Disney.

                              I think they've pretty well done as much as they can with Star Wars, but I'll keep an open mind. Honestly, I'd like to see the series go in a darker direction with CGI used more sparingly. Though that probably won't happen.
