This was on October 31, 2012
Earlier today, George Lucas announced that he was selling 100% of his company, Lucasfilm, to the Walt Disney corporation for a staggering $4.05 billion!
Today Disney also announced that they are already planning to film many more Star Wars movies starting with “Episode 7″ which is slated for release in 2015. Lucas will serve as a creative consultant. If Disney can apply their movie making and marketing magic to the future Star Wars releases and the massive library of older content, this could turn into a very lucrative deal for all parties.
Well this sucks, kinda wished they just left the legend alone.
