Disney buying 'Star Wars' maker Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion from George Lucas
By The Associated Press October 30, 2012 2:20 PM



LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Disney is paying $4.05 billion to buy Lucasfilm Ltd., the production company behind "Star Wars," from its chairman and founder, George Lucas. It's also making a seventh movie in the "Star Wars" series called "Episode 7," set for release in 2015, with plans to follow it with Episodes 8 and 9 and then one new movie every two or three years.

The Walt Disney Co. announced the agreement to make the purchase in cash and stock Tuesday.

The deal brings Lucasfilm under the Disney banner with other brands including Pixar, Marvel, ESPN and ABC.

Kathleen Kennedy, the current co-chairman of Lucasfilm, will become its president and report to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn. Lucas will be creative consultant on new "Star Wars" films.

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

Heh, I was hoping that with the buyout of 7,8,9 that Lucas himself wouldn't be doing the directing and producing of them... but from what It sounds like... he will....

And with it being a Disney project, I'm worried there may actually be more "jar jar antics" involved. Bleh.

Jar-jar was mainly pushed by Lucas himself actually. But the real thing that interests me is that Disney now owns, among others, Pixar, Lucas, and Marvel studios. They've pretty much cornered the market on all superhero and sci-fi/fantasy movies.
