Disney announced today that they would be buying LucasFilms for $4.05 Billion. CEO and 100% share holder, George Lucas said, "It's now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers".[more info]
For me, a very vocal critic of how George Lucas has handled the Star Wars franchise, this is great news. I just wish it happened in the late 90's before the cycle of true bastardization really started. But hey... you can only ear-punch a man so many times right? Even after his whiney "take my ball and go home" response to negative fan reactions to his films, I didn't think this day would come. Sure he's still considered a "creative consultant" for the 7th film, scheduled for 2015. My hope is that just means "yeah it was his IP. Now we're running with it. Don't worry. We got this."
Patent Star Wars fan optimism huh?
