Disney buying ‘Star Wars’ maker Lucasfilm

The Death Star

It’s a small Death Star, after all.

The AP is reporting that George Lucas is calling it quits and cashing in, for more than $4 billion.

The news brings with it some ominous news: Star Wars Episode 7, slated for release in 2015, with plans to follow it with Episodes 8 and 9 and then one new movie every two or three years.



  1. I first reacted in horror. I reacted the same way when I heard the news about Disney buying Marvel. But since that purchase, Disney has created Marvel magic (Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man 3 next summer). I think this will give Star Wars a new life and will continue to thrill audiences!
