It’s a pretty stunning announcement – Disney to buy Lucasfilm for $4.1 billion. I’d heard a little inkling from a friend on Sunday, but I wasn’t expecting a bombshell of that magnitude. It’s awesome news. New films – Episode VII planned for May 2015, with VII and IX to follow. Kathleen Kennedy in the driving seat. Lucas out of harm’s way. The blueprint of the approach they took with Marvel. The might of Disney behind it all. It really is a good move for everyone involved.
A NEW STAR WARS MOVIE! I can hardly believe it. I will be watching this develop closely.
