These must be the Droids Walt Disney is looking for!

I just saw over the wire that Disney is buying Lucasfilms for over 4 billion dollars.
And they plan on making Episode 7, 8, and 9 of Star Wars! With Episode 7 slated to hit in 2015.  And then a new movie every 2 to 3 years after that.

I'm scared, excited, torn and flabbergasted all at the same time.  All I can say is please don't let the sequels suck like the prequels.

I'm going to hold out optimism for Episode 7.  And I'm curious who they will get to replace the iconic actors from the original 3 movies.

Any thoughts out there on the news?


  1. Wow. First Marvel, now Star Wars. I bet Hasbro is licking their chops at the potential of all the new toys they'll be able to sell.

    I can honestly say that I never saw this coming.

  2. So what all does that get them? Just the film studio or are LucasArts, ILM and Skywalker Sound still part of Lucasfilm?

  3. What it means is the Mouse Mafia is running the show ya see.....So get with the program or goofy is gonna take ya out back and plug ya see!

    Basically they acquired the brain of George Lucas (but the not the heart) and all of his subsidiaries which includes the THX, LucasArts, ILM, and skywalker sound. He was so upset by the time he did "redbirds" that he couldn't handle the verbal jabs being thrown at him and he wanted to retire. So he cashed out and will never have to worry about screwing up the star wars franchise again and hearing all of the negativity he was getting.

  4. i think they're gonna suck, big time but i'll give the first one eight bucks. that is if i'm living where there are theaters by then.
