Disney to Purchase Lucasfilm for $4.05 Billion + Episode 7 in 2015!!!
Another mega purchase by the House of Mouse.
It seems like just yesterday that Disney bought Marvel Comics, and now they are in the news again, buying another giant in the entertainment industry, Lucasfilm. Here is the official word from the Associated Press:
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Disney says it is buying ‘Star Wars’ maker Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion from George Lucas.
In a statement announcing the deal Tuesday, Lucas says, “It’s now time for me to pass ‘Star Wars’ on to a new generation of filmmakers.”
What do you think of this? Yay? Nay? Personally, I’m not quite sure what to make of it… it could be a really great thing for the Star Wars franchise…or really bad… Forbes is already announcing Episode 7 for a 2015 release…that is HUGE!!!!!!
