Disney Buys Lucasfilm for $4 Billion
The Walt Disney Company has just purchased LucasFilm Ltd. from George Lucas for approx. $4.05 billion. With the newly acquired film company, Disney has already announced a new Star Wars movie.
Star Wars: Episode 7 is slated for a 2015 release with George Lucas serving as creative consultant of all future projects. This comes as a surprise being that Lucas had previously stated that there will be no more Star Wars films: “Why would I make any more, when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?”
We guess everybody deserves a change of heart… What do you think about this move by Disney?
