Disney acquires Lucasfilm for 4.05 billion, sets to release Star Wars Episode VII
This is absolutely insane. It was just announced that Disney acquired Lucasfilm in a mix of cash and stock for 4.05 billion, and plans to not only release Episode VII in 2015, but release a Star Wars feature film every two to three years after.
Not only does acquiring Lucasfilm give them access to Star Wars, but Disney now has control of ILM, Skywalker Sound, Lucasarts, and all that sweet, sweet merchandising.
I guess with the acquisition of Pixar and Marvel, they're pretty much set to rename themselves "OMNIENTERTAINMENT".

It's going to be terrible. Probably worst than the abomination of the prequels.
Though I'd laugh if they weren't bad because they have a different director.

It seems like it's him alleviating himself of the company and everything tied to it, since he says in a statement that he always wanted Star Wars to outlive him, and wanted to pass it onto the next generation of film makers. So I guess when this comes around it'll most likely have a new director.
I can't imagine the money they'll be throwing at lobbyists when the copyright issue comes up again.

I mean, there's really no guarantee it'll be bad. It certainly could suck, but there's definately room for three more live action movies in the Star Wars universe. It just depends on if they get a good script and also lets somebody other than George Lucas direct it.
