It’s official…Disney is taking over the world. Not only does Disney own Marvel and Pixar, but now they’ve purchased one of the greatest franchises of all-time, Star Wars!
It was released today that Disney made the purchase of Lucasfilm from Founder and CEO George Lucas, the creator of everything Star Wars, for get this…$4.05 BILLION! So George Lucas came away as a ridiculously wealthy man from the agreement. But perhaps fans are in for some amazing gains, as well.
One of the first things Disney unveiled in their future goals from the purchase is to release Star Wars: Episode 7 sometime in 2015! I can’t believe this is true…it’s unreal! George Lucas previously mentioned he had zero intention of continuing the story, even though there is an episode 7, 8 and 9 written. But through the creative geniuses at Disney, they will now see the big screen.
Are you a Star Wars fan? If you weren’t, are you now?
