Disney Purchases Lucasfilm for $4.05 Billion

Here’s something that we didn’t see coming!  Today it was announced that Disney has acquired Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion  giving it all rights to the Star Wars franchise.  And what is probably the aspect of this deal that’s creating the most buzz is the fact that in 2015 we will be getting Star Wars: Episode VII!  You have to let us know what you think about that!

Here’s and excerpt from a very in depth article by Collider:

Disney has purchased George Lucas’ Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion, and has earmarked a 2015 release date for Star Wars: Episode VII. Yes, you read that right. Not only will Disney be in command of the Star Wars empire, but a seventh entry in one of the most popular franchise of all time is in the works and set for release the same year as The Avengers 2 and Justice League.

I’m still in a fair amount of shock here, but with this move Disney has solidified its plans to take over the world as the company now houses Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm. The new was announced by both companies, so this is no hoax.
