Quote:
Continuing its strategy of delivering exceptional creative content to audiences around the world, The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) has agreed to acquire Lucasfilm Ltd. in a stock and cash transaction. Lucasfilm is 100% owned by Lucasfilm Chairman and Founder, George Lucas.

Under the terms of the agreement and based on the closing price of Disney stock on October 26, 2012, the transaction value is $4.05 billion, with Disney paying approximately half of the consideration in cash and issuing approximately 40 million shares at closing. The final consideration will be subject to customary post-closing balance sheet adjustments.


Star Wars: episode 7 due in 2015

Quote:
Kathleen Kennedy, current Co-Chairman of Lucasfilm, will become President of Lucasfilm, reporting to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn. Additionally she will serve as the brand manager for Star Wars, working directly with Disney's global lines of business to build, further integrate, and maximize the value of this global franchise. Ms. Kennedy will serve as executive producer on new Star Wars feature films, with George Lucas serving as creative consultant. Star Wars Episode 7 is targeted for release in 2015, with more feature films expected to continue the Star Wars saga and grow the franchise well into the future.


This feels like an April Fool's joke! WTF!

This is what politicians means when they talk about an October surprise.

I wouldn't mind an entire Star Wars park.  Star Tours is pretty damned cool, and I don't think it would take a lot of effort to come up with an entire amusement park worth of Star Wars themed attractions.

Well looks like he was lying a bit when he said he wasn't doing the new star wars movie. Maybe this one will take place in an alternate universe as well!

I exploded so much...I needed a slop bucket and 12 mops to clean it up.

Watch...it's going to be a Trek/Wars crossover.
