Star Wars 7 - coming :ecstatic:

Disney to buy Lucasfilm for $4 billion

http://money.cnn.com/2012/10/30/technology/disney-buys-lucasfilm/index.html?hpt=hp_t3

"It's now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers," George Lucas said in a written statement. "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."

Lucas said he will work as a creative consultant on Star Wars Episode 7, the first of a planned new trilogy of live-action Star Wars movies. It is targeted for release in 2015, Disney said.

"The film is in what I'll call early-stage development right now," Disney CEO Bob Iger said on a conference call with analysts. Lucas did not join him on the call.

Disney hopes to essentially relaunch the Star Wars film franchise, which had its last installment in 2005 with Revenge of the Sith. Following the three planned sequels, the company envisions releasing even more Star Wars movies at a rate of a new film every two to three years.

Future movies may not be sequels but movies that focus on fringe characters. Disney also believes there is potential for a television series.

I am still processing this. On the one hand I would love to see more Star Wars, and on the other, what else is to tell? I always saw Star Wars as "The Rise and Fall of Annakin Skywalker". That story is done.

I can see more Star Wars, yes - because the stories that can be told are infinite. But why "Episode 7"?

I have to say, Disney made one awesome purchase!

Star Wars has made sooooooo much money, and with Disney now owning it and merchandising it, Disney scored big here, as well as Lucas. Lucas said he is donating all the money to charity, which is pretty cool.

I also read that rumors are new story lines could be about what happened to Luke, Han, Leia after the Jedi movie and/or Han in his early years before he met Luke and Leia, or the early years of Luke and Leia after they were born. Another report was the movie will be out in 2015.
