Disney buys Lucasfilm - October 30, 2012, 03:43 PM

Disney Acquires The Rights To Lucasfilm, Developing Star Wars Episode VII For 2015 - CinemaBlend.com

Absolutely stunned. I never thought Lucas would ever let go until after his dirt nap. I am curious where this is going to go.

I saw this cross my investment feed earlier today.
$4B is a lot of money to play with, and he has plenty of revenue being generated from Industrial Light and Magic and LucasGames, but I am stunned he relinquished the rights to Lucas Films and not just Star Wars!

This would also include Indiana Jones and the Star Wars Clone Wars animated series, which is doing fantastic ratings for CN.

Too bad this deal didn't go through before Indiana Jones 4.

WTF???? This is a real surprise to me. Figured Lucas would not let go of that shit until well after he croaker. I wonder what they are going to do with the Lucasfilm Campus. I guess Star Wars: Clones Wars is going to switch from Cartoon Network to ABC Kids.....that is gonna suck because they will water down the violence.

I am slacking.......I usually am up on this kind of information.

Maybe he is ready to really retire and is tired of getting his ass ripped every time he pisses over his own legacy.

Read this last night....its a good thing I think.

I like the last 3 SW, but I think he is trying to over fill the storys with way to much political mombo jumbo. At least with Disney and the talents of Marvel they should make a decent film...but with less violence maybe.

What I am surprised about is the 2015 launch of Episode 7.

Thats less than 3 years away so production would need to start next year. They have an army of stories to choose from.

Anyway, 4 billion to give up your legacy...your baby....I might can do it also. Depends.

I wonder if he is going to give allot of that away. Id buy a small country and fill it with the hottest chicks on earth....and give away free birth control.

It would be called.......Pussyville USA.

Digital sets allow film companies to speed up the production cycle immensely. No longer do you need to scout locations, pull permits, send out a second unit, wait for the right weather and time of day, etc. etc.

They don't have to rent huge soundstages and build monsterous sets either. Literally cuts months if not a full year out of the production shoot.

But one thing I did note in the press release, Lucas did not sell Industrial Light & Magic. Conceivably, although he no longer own SW, Disney will have to come back to him for all the effects and CG work.

I think he finally decided to sell out because of the 10 or 15 years of litigation marin county was putting him thru for building a studio/production place on his property. I belive he decided to take the land and turn it into low income housing or something like that.

Its always been rumored that Lucas has had scripts or stories of some sort written for a very long time which take place in some part of the pre or post empire.
