So you may have heard by now that Disney purchased Lucasfilms for the equivalent of approx. $4 billion. Wow! Congrats to George Lucas on that one. They also announced that Star Wars Episode VII will be released in 2015. I am kind of torn on this. It will be strange to know that someone other than Lucas is making these new Star Wars films, especially knowing how tightly Lucas controlled everything related to the brand. On the other hand, Disney has done some great things with the Marvel Comics franchises, and it will be exciting to see Disney throw their support behind Star Wars. I’m sure the success with Marvel made it a little easier for Lucas to allow Disney to take over, but what are your feelings about this?
