Disney Buying Lucasfilm (!)
« on: October 30, 2012, 06:33:27 pm »
Not sure if there were rumors of this or not as I had never heard of Disney having interest in Lucasfilm before. However, they are indeed purchasing Lucasfilm and are planning on releasing a new movie in the Star Wars universe in 2015. No real specifics other than it might not be a continuation of the previous movies, could just follow new characters or some of the lesser known ones. If all goes well it sounds as if there will be a lot of new Star Wars movies, one every couple of years after the 2015 release.

I read about this a few hours ago. I'm not surprised by the purchase, I just hope Disney doesn't screw everything up!

I can't imagine Disney being able to do anything to screw up the Star Wars franchise more than George Lucas already did.

Goodbye fan creations, goodbye extended universe, goodbye comic books, goodbye DVD releases.

And most importantly...

Goodbye classic Lucas Arts gaming properties.

As long as he cuts Jar Jar's head with a lightsaber, I'm fine with that... :P

I'm not really surprised, considering both Indiana Jones and Star Wars has had attractions at Disney's parks for years.
