Star Wars Episodes VII, VIII & IX - a la Disney!

Post by Liz W » Wed Oct 31, 2012 7:52 pm

Hi all

Saw this, briefly, on the news first thing this morning; but saw a longer report on the main news tonight.

George Lucas has sold Lucasfilm to Disney, for approx £2.5million!

They say they are going to do Episodes VII, VIII & IX; VII to be released in 2015

Although I'm probably in a minority ;^). As long as they can produce something that I enjoy as much as John Carter I'll be quite happy. Hopefully this means that George will, at long last, stop all his unnecessary doodling over eps iv,v & vi.

Liz. I think you'll find the price tag was 2.5 billion. A bit of a difference. Anyhoo.....

Getting Star Wars away from George Lucas is good news. At least it'll stop him from tinkering with the films. I'm hoping that Disney doesn't 'kiddify' Star Wars. Mind you, George did that with The Phantom Menace and Jar Jar Binks. Here's hoping.....
